UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
September 1st 2007 : A31 from Bentley towards Alton, Hampshire, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Driving on A31 from Bentley towards Alton, Hampshire, UK
Date: Saturday, 09/01/2007, approximately 9-9:30 pm local time
Approach Direction: Traveling Southeast
Departure Direction: Northwest
Witness Direction: West
Description: While driving home on the A31, Peter first noticed something in the sky off to the left and asked me if I had seen something as well. We pulled off to the side of the road and counted 17 orange/red lights, not flashing, moving across the sky in a type of formation at a steady clip. It was a clear night. They were silent. Someone else must have seen them!
Color/Shape: Orange/Red ... 17 of them ... shaped like upturned commas .. very small ... not flashing ... traveling in semi-formation.
Height & Speed: Hard to say ... maybe 100-200 mph ... high in the sky.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
Dear John ...
We have looked at the balloons website and although it bears some similarity, we still believe they were far too high in the sky and cast off red lights.
I can't imagine why anyone would set off those silly balloons, in any case.
Sorry for my delay in writing back but I am now back in the States. Peter lives in England.
Let me know if I can answer any other questions.
All the best,
