Number of witnesses: 2

Shape of objects: Roughly round

Weather Conditions: Light cloud

Description: I was sitting in my lounge looking out towards the North Downs when I saw what I initially thought was an aeroplane on fire. I called my wife and we went outside to the front of the house and we both watched this object that I can most accurately describe as a ball of fire move reasonably slowly, bit faster than a helicopter, but totally silent, from North West to East. It didn't move in a straight line as, from the angel we were looking at it, it seemed to be weaving slightly. Possible altitude approx. 3000 to 5000 ft. It eventually disapperaed behind a cloud but we could see the orange glow shining through the cloud for quite some time. No trail or smoke. As we turned to go indoors, a second one followed - displaying exacatly the same characteristics and disappeared in the same direction. Total time of sighting approx 2 minutes. The strange thing was that as it disappeared into the distance, it seemed to go higher not lower, as would a normal aeroplane heading towards Europe.

We speculated on possible causes includeing hot air balloons, but it was moving too fast for that. We see lots of aeroplanes in the Kent skies - and it certainly wasn't na aeroplane. We are both rather sceptical of UFOs but are having difficulty finding any other explanation.
