UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Edinburgh Scotland
Date: Monday 10.09.07 0330 hrs GMT
Approach Direction: Stationary
Departure Direction: North
Witness Direction: South
Description: 2 large very bright lights beside Orion one above the other, stationary at 1st but moved slowly north keeping distance between them. Both then faded to a small orange/red dot as if closing the iris on a lens and then vanished.
Color/Shape: bright white faded to orange/red.
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:
I have had a look at the site and a couple of related ones. The lights I saw were much brighter than these, I would describe them as similar to Sirius (which was not visable) but bigger in size they did move slowly like a balloon would, but faded out in unison, the closest I could describe this is if you look at a camera lens and turn the f stops from wide open to closed.
