UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
August 7th 2008 : Saltdean, Brighton, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Saltdean, Brighton, UK
Date: Thursday 7th August
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3, then further 2, moving South East to North West
Shape of objects: Circular, very very distant
Weather Conditions: Very clear evening
Description: A number of very high objects, white light, small, moving fairly fast - not planes, as we have those around here all the time. Came in and out of focus - at that distance, high in the night sky, they all looked circular. From ground level, they 'looked' the same as stars, but obviously not shooting stars, seen those many times before and traveling at a constant speed.
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:
No, I know about those! Quite a few round this area, so it wasn't that. One thing did cross my mind, is it possible to see satellites at that distance? Whatever it was, it was a long way above plane level (Gatwick is reasonably close). To be honest, they looked at 'star' level - well, you know what I mean!
