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:

Thanks for your e-mail,

I didn't tell you what happened a week later in broad daylight because I don't think you would believe me but the video told you about was shot the second night of the sighting and someone in Miles Platting also recorded it, that video was show on a news program some time later and the craft was triangular with red lights at the points with a bluish white light in the middle. The first night we saw it was a friday around 9.00pm (I can't remember if it was 1994 or 5 nor the month but it was freezing cold) the sky was clear and the lights were already hovering low in the formation I have just described but there was no shape of a craft. My son and I watched it for about 45 minutes from our back garden as it slowly moved back and forth at times only two red balls of light were visible slowly pulsing alternatively when stationary speeding up when it moved from side to side.

The second night I felt restless and kept making up excuses to go to the shops this was around 9.00pm again, I had a feeling it would come back. The third time I stepped out of my door there was a huge red ball of light less than a hundred foot above me moving south east slower than any aircraft I have ever seen towards the direction of the first sighting. There was low cloud cover and no wind all we could see was the lights again no shape and it made the same manouvers as the night before. On this saturday there was a live crime programe link up on t.v. Between London, Manchester and I think Liverpool and when these lights turned up Manchester lost the live link during the sighting which lasted nearly an hour. On my video you can hear police cars and see the lights of a helicopter near the lights it's not a good recording because I sent my son to my mothers to use her camera and it's only in black and white but there is more than 30 minutes of footage and it was still there when my son walked his girlfriend home which took another half hour.

All I can say is not a balloon, not air craft, the behaviour of movement and pulsing lights over two days was identical.
