UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Carlton, Nottingham, England
Date: 01-01 2008
Number of witnesses: 6
Number of objects: 10
Shape of objects: round
Weather Conditions: fair
Description: my neighbour and her son noticed some lights in the sky and phoned me. My family and I went out and saw orange/red lights moving slowly below the clouds. They were moving slowly, at first one at a time then in 3 and 2 formations. They seemed to wait for each other as the stopped mid air before slowly disappearing. I also saw bunches of blue lights which were harder to see. Everything was quiet, no engine sounds. They seemed to glow. We do have some very good pictures. This lasted about 15 minutes.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to send me some of the photos and also to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
Thankyou for replying to my report. Enclosed are the photos we have taken. When enhanced they are very interesting.
Unfortunately I am changing broadband supplier so my e-mail will be off for 2 or 3 weeks.
UFOINFO Note: I have included cropped sections of the photographs below - if you wish to see it full size click on the photo. The off-white object in the first photo is lens flare which can be seen repeated to the bottom left-hand corner when viewing full size.
A shutter speed of 1/8th second was used which could account for some of the shapes. EXIF info is available on the full size images (3072px x 2304px).
