UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

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.

August 30th 2006 : Toton, Nottinghamshire, England

Location: Above Toton, Nottingham

Date: 08/30/06 approx 20:00 local GMT

Approach Direction: south-west

Departure Direction: north-east

Witness Direction: north

Description: I was on the phone to my mum who was telling me about the sighting she has seen for the last 3 weeks of a bright Orange light in the sky. Being a little sceptical I decided to have a look outside and to my shock there was the orange light that my mum and described. It was floating below the sky line in a north east direction, moving at a slow constant speed but no sound. My wife also saw it and neither of us could give an explanation as to what it was. It could not have been a plane or helicopter as there was no sound.

Color/Shape: Bright orange light.

Height & Speed: Not sure as it was dark and clowdy, but object was below the clowds.

TV/Radio/Press: There have been two articles in the local press about recent sightings. There is a suggestion that it is someone setting off Chinese latterns.
