Time: 23:30-24:00

Number of witnesses: Two

Number of objects: Approx 20

Shape of objects: Shape not determinable as only large pink points of light visible

Weather Conditions: Clear. Stars visible. Occasional wisps of high altitude cloud

Description: A series of 20 or so pinky-orange lights (points of light) that flew west to east, one after the after, along a path that was to the south of our viewpoint in Cambridge. One had the sense that their flightpath was slightly curved, coming in from the west or north-west but curving to their right to disappear slightly south of southeast.

Each light followed approximately 20-30 seconds behind the other. But this varied. IE they were not following exactly the same distance apart and timewise there was enough of a gap in the middle that one could say their were effectively two groups of them. The last we saw appeared to be a straggler a couple of minutes behind the main two 'groups'. One - approximately in the middle = appeared to turn slightly to its right (our south) before disappearing.

Each took up to 40 seconds or so to cross our angle of vision (which was truncated to our right by Cambridge rooftops).

Their speed and the 'size' of the light points suggested they were quite low, perhaps 3,000-5,000.
