Description: My friend and I were driving home along the Shirehampton road, in the Sea Mills direction. It was about 9.15pm. Just before reaching my turning I noticed a series of orange lights coming over the horizon. At first we thought they were fireworks, but when we realized they were not fizzling out and that there were more appearing we pulled over. We both watched as one after another passed above the Kingsweston tree line. These objects were round and orange, and glowed like street lamps. They could have been misstaken for a constellation if they had not so obviously been moving, and quite quickly too. They appeared in ones, twos and threes: but can't say if any particular order. By the time we had reached my house the last few were vanishing into the darkening sky. They had come from the west, and moved in a direct way in a north easterly direction. They did not pass across as a plane might, in that you could follow it's course across the night sky. Instead they faded away, so they must have been going up as there was no cloud in that area just clear sky and stars. I've never seen anything like this, the consistency in which these lights moved, the orange colour and the number seemed so unlike planes or helicopters. I knew we could not have been the only people to see this.

TV/Radio: I emailed the Bristol Evening Post, but have had no reply.
