UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: South Oxhey Hertfordshire England
Date: 09/15/07 21:00hrs GMT
Approach Direction: S/W
Departure Direction: N/E
Witness Direction: Sth
Description: Looked into the sky to see what i thought was a whole constellation moving! 4 orange looking lights that became red when approaching were moving in sequence. No way was it aircraft as i am 17 miles from Heathrow, and this was not on any flight path and they were way to close together. All aircraft around here have a five mile seperation.
Color/Shape: Orange, changing to red then just disapearing just like a satellite that moves out of the light does.
Height & Speed: Slow moving, height unable to say i would estimate about 5 miles away from me at approx 6-8000ft altitude.
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:
Looking at the balloon site I guess it could be a possibility, a couple of things make doubt creep in to my mind though. The speed they were traveling and the height they seemed to be at seem to tell me they were not balloons but the fact the lights seemed to fade at the same time point to the fact the source of their energy could point towards the balloon theory.
I did see a separate dull white light move away to ssw direction after the lights have faded, this could have been a separate satellite though.
Its made me think, however I remain open minded and thank you for bringing this site to my attention.
