UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

May 24th 2007 : Bournemouth, Dorset, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: bournemouth dorset uk

Date: thursday may 24th, 10.00pm approx. local time

Approach Direction: viewed in south eastely direction, possibly over the sea.

Departure Direction: faded from view in the same direction

Witness Direction: south east

Description: we were sat in the garden and suddenly noticed 5 or 6 lights in the sky, gliding too fast for a planet and too slow for a plane- orange in colour and definately not fireworks or lasers. They glided into some sort of formation, one (pentagon shaped) faded and reappeared, then more seemed to join them, and then fnally three formed a triangle. The whole display lasted approx 40 mins, there were lots of witnesses, and it was reported in the press and a video was taken by a member of the public.

Color/Shape: perfectly round and a matt orange in colour.

Height & Speed: could not estimate height, but seemed too high to be balloons, as has been suggested. They seemed to glide, and just faded from view, as if travelling outwards and upwards quite fast.

TV/Radio/Press: reprted to the bournemouth evening echo, and reported on the local lunchtime bbc tv news.
