UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Stockport, Cheshire, England
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: triangular
Weather Conditions: broken cloud
Description: I was chatting with my brother on the doorstep at around 18.15 (gmt) when he shouted “What’s that?” and pointed in the sky. Looking in the direction I saw this object racing across the sky about 45 degrees from horizon. It was red in colour and triangular in shape. The direction of travel was approximately north west to south east. Its size was about that of a high altitude airliner. Its speed I would guess at 3 to 4 times the speed a high altitude airliner crosses the sky. We followed it until it was lost behind high clouds. We were still looking up when two more appeared directly above from over the roof of the house. They were side by side and travelling in a direction as though pursuing the first object. They were two very distinct triangles formed by three red lights at each corner. That’s all that was visible, the three red lights between which was either a black body or the dark sky. One of these two was rotating around its centre. Within seconds they were also lost behind clouds. I went indoors for my video camera and we both took a walk over the field away from any light pollution just in case any more were to appear, but by now the cloud cover was all over.
I’d say the entire sighting lasted about 15-20 seconds.
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:
There is no doubt in my mind that these things were mechanical flying devices of some kind. The altitude, speed and symetry of the objects certainly ruled out balloons or lanterns. I've done a search on the web and found a video of what appears to be the same or a similar object
Attached is an image I drew up on the pc of the 2 object that were directly overhead. The triangle on the left rotated around its centre. Remember also that they were above the cloud cover which rules out fireworks. (I actually began to wonder whether these things were flying at this time of year to use firework usage as a camouflage!)
Hope this is of further use.
