UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Renhold, Bedford, BEDS
Number of witnesses: 20
Number of objects: 8
Shape of objects: circular
Weather Conditions: clear
Description: 5 orange lights were sighted in a string in the SW. They moved purposely to overhead, near the constellation of Orion. The 1st 3 formed a triangle and the remaining 2 seemed to touch. They gradually faded or moved away. 3 more were sighted directly afterwards in the SW again. They moved in a triangular formation again as before. All objects were round and orange/yellow in colour and NOT aircraft or fireworks. They were silent. The whole episode lasted about 30 mins from 11:45 to 00:15. They were witnessed by at least 20 people, none of whome could offer an explanation.
TV/Radio not reported
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:
Good morning John. They were definately NOT balloons! Why do people launch ballons any way? The sightings were high and when compared to a commercial plane, quite large. All of us, approx 20 people of all ages, children and adults were gobsmacked! The party also included police officers! We all missed the New Year because of it. We were all so absorbed in watching the heavens! I came home and turned on News 24 because I was so sure there must be a report on it- there wasn't!
The lights were purposeful and directed, not random or being blown by the wind.
I feel very lucky to have witnessed it.
Best wishes, I hope this makes more sense, please keep in touch.
