UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

July 12th 2008 : Northenden, Manchester, Lancashire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Northenden Manchester M22 England.

Date: 12/07/08 Saturday

Time: 10:40pm

Number of witnesses: 3

Number of objects: 10

Shape of objects: circular

Weather Conditions: Clear with scattered clouds. Nil wind.

Description: Just pulled up in my car at home when my neighbour called me over. We stood and looked in complete amazement. The objects were travelling from the West-North-West, heading towards East-South-East. The ten objects were travelling in a straight line occasionally crossing over or veering to one side. These objects were very bright and circular in shape, travelling at high speed under the cloud base no noise very quiet. We all saw this and it was as clear as a bell. There was no signs of flashing or other lighting associated with aircraft.

TV/Radio: We have not yet reported the sighting to the local papers as it is Sunday today. We do have some of the sighting on video.


UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness send me a copy of the video if possible and 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,

What we all saw that night was definately not those UFO balloons. These flying objects were flying at very high speed. And kept coming from the same direction forming a flight path, there were a couple that crossed over and rejoined very quickly and they were extremely bright with a definate circular shape. (no noise) following each other. It was truly a great experience to see this and we will never forget it. But again can we say they were definately not BALLOONS.

Will send the video clip to you as soon as. At the moment at work.

Kind Regards,


Hello John,

Finally got the video clip on YOU TUBE. Please take a look. I will also forward the local newspaper article who did the UFO feature on us. Hope you can tell us what you think it is.

UFOINFO Note: There is another video on YouTube for the same date and time:

Was coming back from my friend andys, and saw these strange lights, having heard storys about "Red lights in the sky" a few weeks before i ran inside and grabed my camera..

I was in my front garden, there were a number off these lights moving across the sky id say about 10-15 at least (I didnt think too count)

Car was a taxi for my nextdoor neighbours who also were amazed by the lights, as was the taxi driver.

I do not think the "Street light UFO" is a ufo, looks like a camera lense reflection too me !

Its the lights in the sky i dont understand...
