UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

February 17th 2008 : Leeds, Yorkshire, England

Location: Leeds, England

Date: 17/02/08

Time: 9.20pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 3

Shape of objects: Appearance of stars, very bright orange

Weather Conditions: Low localised mist, stars & constellations clearly visible above.

Description: Three objects aligned to the east, very bright orange & glowing. No navigation lights indicating air traffic or con trails. The three objects from my viewpoint appeared in a straight line, however the faintest was centre, brightest at bottom & mid-lit at top of line. The centre became dimmer, as if moving away upward & out of visible range, the other two growing dimmer by gradient in relation to first. Approx 3 minutes before all three were gone from visibility.


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:

Thank you for your reply to my report & I apologise for taking so long to be able to reply.

I have viewed the footage and trolled other videos on the web & can say that the balloons were nothing like the objects seen by myself, adding that at any altitude the balloons would be subject to the effects of turbulance, of which I saw none.

I must also make one minor correction to my report; the date. I reported this as being the 18th when it should have been 17th February 2008.

In closing, I hope that my report will be included on your site, but stress that I would rather remain anonymous.
