October 6th 2007 : Cockermouth, Cumbria, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: cockermouth, cumbria, england

Date: 10/06/2007

Approach Direction: easterly

Departure Direction: nnw

Witness Direction: east

Description: at ten pm I was walking my dogs and seen six reddish orange lights stationary in the eastern sky, my first thoughts were, maybe these lights belong to helicopters but after two minutes of looking and listening I didn't detect any sound and thought that as the hills were in that direction perhaps the lights were being used by hill walkers navigating but as the hills were at least eight miles away it would have meant they were walking at least a mile apart and that wouldn't happen noramally, then one of the lights sped off towards the north and disapeared then all but one disapeared as thogh switched off! the last one stayed put for another couple of minutes then it too vanished , I was astounded and thought perhaps cloud had come in and blanked them out, but a jetplane was taking a route across the position of the last visible light and was trackable until over the horizon! I've never given a lot of credence to UFO sightings but this incedent has opened my eyes which is how I came to be on your website and I have found two other reports on a similar sighting for the same night.
