UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

June 28th 2008 : Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Cheltenham - North of Cheltenham Racecourse

Date: 28 June 2008

Time: 2200

Number of witnesses: four

Number of objects: six

Shape of objects: Round like balloon shapes, with organge in them, they just looked like lit up ballons and flimsy but moved very quickly

Weather Conditions: dry, windy, cloudy, some clear skies

Description: Round like balloon shapes, looked like they had flame inside a ballon, they were all orange, thye came from the south and went north in a sweeping formation, they were too fast for aircraft and no noise, they followed each other and sweeped past us over Cleeve hill, my wife, daughtr and motherinlaw, thought it was some kind of joke, but it lasted about 1/2 minutes and it got more scary as they all followed each other, I can only think the clour was like looking at a hot air ballon when it fires the gas, but they were quite small and glowing, I have never seen anything like this nor can think of anything that it/they may have been. Does anybody have a rationale explanation, and more importanly it was witnessed by several members of the family.

Update:

Nigel wrote: With regards to the sighting reported previously on this date for Cheltenham, England; a local school has reportedly set off multiple Chinease Sky Lanterns during a party that night, causing many ufo sightings in the town on that date.
