Approach Direction: west to east

Departure _Direction: upwards

Witness Direction: south and upwards

Description: 6 lights appeared coming up over the horizon from the west, in a chain formation, and headed east, not at a great speed, they appeared to stop over the top of us, and then one at a time went into a upwards direction, until they looked like stars, and formed a circle.

You would have thought they were helicopters hovering, they held position

Follow-up Report from Brian Vike:

Hi Brian

thanks for your response, I will try to answer your questions as best as possible here goes anyway:

Weather conditions: mainly clear, some patchy clouds but stars visible.

Time: from the original movement to shooting upwards and hovering in a circle, 30 minutes, but we stopped watching at this point. Although they were still visible approx 22.20 when other family members came home, but they just looked like stars then.

Height : aircraft height 30,000 ft approx

aircrafts present : Yes we are in an aircraft corridor that is quite busy at times, south end small airport 7 miles east of us. Heathrow London 40 miles west. Stanstead 30 miles north west. London city Airport 20 miles west.

Size: sorry just saw lights

Formation: sorry we didn't see them disappear but as noted earlier, they were still visible after 22.20.

more info: when we first noticed, they appeared like helicopters coming over the horizon (movie like) in a stacking formation, in a straight line. one at a time after each other, then they came towards us, appeared to stand still for a while (few minutes) then the front one moved forward and shot up, followed by the second, forward enough to the same position as the first one moved to, and so on. this is when the circle formation appeared.

hope this helps your studies.

kind regards
