UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Ibstock, nr. Coalville, Leicestershire. England

Date: 26th July 2008

Time: 11.20 pm

Number of witnesses: 5

Number of objects: 5

Shape of objects: spherical

Weather Conditions: warm, clear, dry

Description: We were outside in the front garden at 11.20 pm. The night was very warm, still, quiet and clear. Our location was adjacent to fields at the very edge of the village.

2 extremely bright orange spheres appeared from a northerly direction, travelling one behind the other in formation. They were moving very fast across the sky in front of us. Quite suddenly the rearmost light accelerated and closed in on the first one. It then disappeared (the front one still being visible but very distant by now. We looked back to the north and saw two more identical orange lights, travelling in the same formation, direction and at similar speed to the first pair. Again the second 'light' accelerater and caught up with the front one. A fifth solitary orange ball then appeared form exactly the same place. This one was travelling far quicker than the previous four objects. It moved across the sky at astonishing speed before disappearing into the distance towards the south. There was NO sound at all.
