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:

Hi John,

Yes it could have easily been these things. However would they be this visible from 20 miles? They were pretty bright to the naked eye. I personally thing what we saw was an elaborate hoax conveniently taking place at 12.30 on a Friday when the pubs kick out. I would just like to hear from other bods that could confirm this. It must have looked spectacular close up!


The witness also received this reply from NATS who provide air traffic control services at Heathrow Airport:

Dear [name deleted],

Thank you for this. Nothing visible on radar or notified to Heathrow air traffic control, so I can't offer you an explanation I'm afraid. Kind regards,
