Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3
A friend and I were by the River Medway near to Strood Station just after midnight when we first noticed two bright orange objects in the sky. The objects made no sound and didn't flash like an aircraft would. I fly weekly so know what they look like in the sky on final approach etc. Just after we saw the first two, a third one was visable and seems closer and lower. It moved in the same direction as the others. The other two then changed direction and appeared to fly upwards and away until they could no longer be seen. The third one followed on the same course as the others.
It wasnt a plane.. so what was it I wonder?
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:
The light from the 'aircraft' looked like an electrical nature.. it was stable and very bright. I also noted that the first two objects moved across the sky and both changed course at the same time and faided out of site. The third object followed the same course, but 2 mins later. The 3rd object moved very quickly - it was not being carried by the wind - the conditions were still and clear. You could see all the stars. There were no other aircraft in the sky. I was looking for them so as to compare.
Are there any aircraft that would fit this description? Military or otherwise? No sound was heard such as a jet engine.
