I sent the following message to James (the witness):

Thanks for the report.

One question I always ask when there are reports of orange lights is to ask the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website at:

It's not that I do not believe you, just a case of more and more people letting these things off, especially in the London area. If you get the chance to look at the link I would appreciate it if you could let me know if this is what you might or might not have seen.

Also did the three other lights appear from the direction of land or sea?


James replied:

Definitely not UFO balloons as the light was very much bigger and the other lights lit up next to them at altitude. The lights were above the land. Is there any other ideas what this is, I know there was 2 of us who saw it and a further two who confirmed the report without me saying anything to them who were in the same area at the time.
