Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Description: UFO sighting, Long Eaton, Nottingham.

It's Wednesday 23rd August 2006, it was 9.03pm and me and my friend looked out of the window because my friends son had told us he could see a UFO flickering in the sky, we also seen this and it looked to be still. We looked around to see if there was anything else in the sky but there wasn't..within 5 minutes it was gone..we carried on looking in the sky wondering what this was and at 9.13pm we seen the same flickering red, orange and yellow light but this time it was lower and slowly moving upwards, then just above the roof top across the road from me we seen another flickering light the same colours as the other one which was slightly higher at this point, both heading in the same direction and slowly moving at an angle upwards in perfect alignment with each other. They both stayed still for a short while then started moving slowly at an angle upwards again with the gap between them remaining unchanged. It was about 9.20pm when they vanished. Then at 9.48 we seen another of the same flickering light in the sky in the same place as the other two, after staying still for about 4 minutes it began to fade then vanish, this one did not move upwards this one remained still. Another sighting the same night at a guess of 11.30pm again moving slowly upward at an angle the same as the others. Please could you tell me if this was seen by others..I'm still looking for anymore that may appear.

Color/Shape: Red, orange and yellow..could not make out a shape.

Height & Speed: Estimated height at 200ft before moving upwards, speed very slow moving sometimes still.

TV/Radio/Press: I sent these same details to BBC News.
