UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

January 1st 2008 : Between Swindon, Wiltshire and Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Between Swindon and Cirencester

Date: 1.01.2008

Time: 00.40am

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: Circular/Globe like

Weather Conditions: Clear but with intermittent fog

Description: We were driving on the A419 towards Cirencester when we spotted two lights in the sky moving towards us. They aroused my interest because the colour and shape did not seem like that of an airoplane. As they got closer, they seemed even less like a plane and so I put my head out of the window and got a very clear view. There was nothing surrounding the lights, they were not attached to anything. I could clearly see sky and cloud all around the 2 individual shapes. Also there was no sound at all. They were moving in a very steady smooth trajectory across the sky and staying at exactly the same distance from each other. The shape seemed to be round/globelike and the light was orange/red/yellow. The light was not of the same quality of any light I can compare it too. Airoplane lights would seem very weak or lacking in intensity in comparison. This was a different type of light, powerful and dense. The lights moved towards us and then over the car and onwards in a south easterly direction.

TV/Radio none


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:

Dear John,

We had a look at the balloons yesterday, but I have just had another look to double check, and I would say absolutely definitely not. Also, just to update you, a friend of ours saw 4 objects which sound very similar to the ones we saw. He saw them about 40 minutes before us over the Rock/Polzeath area in North Cornwall.

Happy New Year to you!
