UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

January 1st 2008 : Manchester, Lancashire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Manchester

Date: 1st January 2008

Time: 00:13

Number of witnesses: 5

Number of objects: 4

Shape of objects: Oval like

Weather Conditions: Cloudy

Description: 12 midnight had long struck and my mother was putting rubbish in the bin at the back when she started banging on the patio window, asking the rest of us to go outside. I went first and up in the sky were 3 bright lights, just totally still. One was further up in the sky which made a triangular shape. The one on the right hand side then span across the sky then span back into place. At this point all 5 of us were out and absolutely amazed. All of a sudden, a big, bright Orange object (almost looked like a Kite on fire) rose from the house just before us. I have seent the video of the lanterns and I can categorically say that it was one of them. Once this appeared and rose a little further in the sky, the 3 stationary lights then moved towards the North, all at the same speed, and keeping with the formation. Once they were out of sight, the Orange object then slowed down, changed direction and just kept moved upwards but followed the path of the 3 other objects slightly.

TV/Radio Nothing reported as far as I know.


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:


I have seent eh video and I can categorically say that it wasn't one of them.

I have noticed how many people have seen these things in the sky around a few hours of the time myself and my family saw them.

We are all convinced that these were UFO's.
