UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
November 3rd 2007 : Ickenham, London, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Ickenham, London, UK
Date: 3rd November 2007
Time: 1930 GMT
Number of witnesses: 14
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Orange Lights - shape indeterminate
Weather Conditions: Clear - Night time
Description: 3 Orange lights moving silently and steadily in line astern formation in the sky to the South of us from West to East towards Central London. 2 were close together and the third some way behind but following the same trajectory. Small relative movements were discernible indicating that each was independent of the others. They remained visible for about 2 minutes until passing out of our field of view. Although it was difficult to estimate altitude in the darkness it was notable that if these were aircraft at a sufficient height for them to be inaudible then their speed of movement across our field of view would have been exceptionally high.
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:
Yes, one of our observers has since found some details on the BBC website that suggested this may well have been the source of this phenomenon.
I also found some information that suggests that the fire brigade take a dim view of people sending uncontrolled fire sources into the atmosphere so let's hope this craze doesn't take off in a big way.
