Description: On the 8th of June 2009, at 12.30am, I was watching TV with my family when I noticed a number of bright orange lights in the sky. I could see them through the patio doors which lead into our back garden. They were coming from the direction of Cork City.
I decided to take a closer look and saw that there were seven bright orange lights, travelling a slow speed, beneath the cloud cover, about three miles from our house. They made no sound.
I called my family, wife and two teenage boys, who came out into the garden and observed the same objects.
They were orange, circular spheres, with a metallic type glow from them. They seemed to be emitting this light, which changed from bright orange to white and back to which various tones of orange.
They moved in perfect precision across the sky, in what seemed to be convoy like, but unlike any formation I have ever seen. The three biggest and brightness were in front, in a vertical line formation, slightly angled. These were followed by two separate spheres, equidistant from each other, about 50 meters apart. These were then followed by another sphere which had a smaller sphere that went around it and moved at acute angles, left and right of it, then seemed to join it and then separate again.
These spheres seemed to be only a few hundred feet in the air. They were moving from an easterly direction, heading westwards. We observed them from about two minutes, when the first three spheres seemed to then just disappear, or not emit light and so could no longer be observed. This same pattern was then repeated by the rest of the spheres when they reached that particular point in the sky. They did not disappear into the clouds nor over the visible horizon.
I managed to capture the last sphere on camera for only a second.
This was the most extraordinary scene I have ever witnesses in my entire life and I am 44. And was glad that it was observed by three other people.
I have observed the night sky on many occasions and know how to identify various aircraft, helicoptors, flares, hot air balloons, fireworks etc. This was not any of the aforementioned. This was definitely a UFO sighting, and seven of them at that.
TV/Radio: Reported on June 8th to 96fm and Redfm, Cork city radio stations. As yet, no other reported sightings.
