Apparently the 'blimp' lit up over the mersey is a goodyear 'blimp'. Does anyone know why?

Following a series of flights in March and April earlier this year, Goodyear once again welcomes the return of its aerial safety ambassador to the UK.

The Goodyear Blimp will be flying across the UK throughout September and October as part of the 2011 Goodyear Safety Tour, so keep your eyes peeled for a chance to see it in the skies.

For updates on where the Goodyear Blimp will be flying and to let us know if you’ve spotted it, simply keep checking back to this website, follow us on Twitter: @Goodyear_UK, or like our Facebook page: GoodyearUK

Whenever I see an airship I think of The Simpsons where Homer is on the end of a piece of rope attached to the airship.
Sideshow Mel calls out "Look at that Blimp - he's hanging onto that balloon !!"

Is this mobile? How is it flying?
I saw this yesterday and there were people getting out of their cars to look at it - if I didn't know already I would've thought it was a UFO, looked amazing in the night sky.

It flew right over where I work today. Could really hear the engines on it. Took a few photos, but because it's so high up, only came out as a shadowy blob against the sky.

It was great though because I haven't seen this for years.

When I got home though, I checked through some photos I'd scanned in, and I found a photo of the Goodyear Europa Airship I'd taken back on the 27th June 1981 (I was eight at the time laugh ) when it flew over Birkenhead.

EDIT: here's the Goodyear blimp over Birkenhead in 1981


This was the new Goodyear blimp over Liverpool today:-


Sorry about the poor quality photos, but it felt nostalgic seeing the Goodyear blimp again (or airship I should say laugh )
