UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
August 9th 2007 : Brownsover, Rugby, Warwickshire, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Brownsover, Rugby, Warwickshire, UK
Date: 20.35 BST 08/09/07
Approach Direction: From the East / South East
Departure Direction: South
Witness Direction: Facing towards East
Description: As I was driving my car, I noticed 2 distinct lights in the sky, travelling slowly at the same speed, both emitting an orange glow. I thought this odd, it was not the colour of a plane's lights, or like a police helicopter. The one further away veered over to the south, and disappeared.The nearer one followed, and as it turned, my son and I saw 2 distinct orange lights at the front. It 'banked' towards the south, and the lights vanished, showing an orange glowing disc shape. At this point it seemed low in the sky, perhaps 500 metres. It disappeared behind some trees, with no trace.
Color/Shape: An orange translucent glow, the objects seemed to be saucer shaped - sorry if that seems corny but it was. The similarity with a previous posting in Rugby sighted on August 12th seems more than a coincidence.
Height & Speed: Perhaps 3000 metres at first sighting, but seemed lower, maybe 500 or less, as they turned to the south.
TV/Radio/Press: No, but I stopped my car to look at these objects, and noted several others had done the same along the road. My son witnessed this with me.
UFOINFO Note: The witness was asked to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen. I received the following reply:
Thanks for your reply.
I have checked out the website, and related others regarding UFO balloons. I'm not at all offended, being rather sceptical I'm curious to find a rational explanation. This could be, considering the vast numbers of press reports recently which follow a similar pattern, and similar in description to what we saw. I wondered however, what could have accounted for the double light effect we saw as the objects approached. Could 2 balloons tied together create this? The translucent effect as it turned would not be incongruent with the idea of a balloon, although what we saw was more rounded than the pictures on the website. Do the balloons flicker? The lights we saw were constant in size and intensity, until they vanished from sight.
If you are searching for true phenomena, these 'pranks' must be creating great difficulties for you!
With best wishes,
