UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
September 10th & 14th 2007 : Heaton, Bolton, Lancashire, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Heaton, Bolton, Lancashire, UK.
Date: 20:45 PM GMT 10.09.07
Approach Direction: due North approx. 45 deg elevation.
Departure Direction: due North approx. 20 deg elevation.
Witness Direction: North
Description: A very bright light appeared and then proceeded to move North, I assumed it was a satellite, though I marvelled and thought it might be a firework because I have never seen one catch the sun's light so much. As the first light dimmed a second immediately appeared in the same manner a few degrees to the left and followed the first at the same pace (best described as the rate a passenger plane would have approaching an airport). Impossible to tell what altitude because of the relative brightness of the first UFO, but I had the impression that they were high. No sound of propulsion.
Color/Shape: White light with no solid shape.
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:
Thanks for the e-mail. I'm not at all offended by your request. But I can feel pretty sure that I can rule out UFO balloons. Although it's a great idea. There was no sway as you might expect to see from a balloon in turbulent air. The flight of my objects was straight, moving away from me horizontal to the ground and propelled. Even if they were relatively near to the ground (which I don't suspect was the case) they were travelling with some speed. My own guess is that I witnessed a brace of satellites. It's just that the brightness and close proximity of them threw me. Still looking for answers so if you shed any light on my sighting please let me know. Any more info you need don't hesitate to contact me.
Additional message from witness:
I didn't want to make another submission on the web site but I wanted to let you know that I had another sighting last night (sighted at 9.55 PM 14/9/07 GMT). Virtually the same thing happened in exactly the same part of the sky! Does this shed any more light on what I am seeing?
I am doubly certain that they are not the balloons you sent me in the link. Nor are they aeroplanes, helicopters or meteorites.
