UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

August 23rd 2008 : Harlow, Essex, England

Harlow, Essex UK Round Orange Points Of Light

Date: August 23, 2008
Time: 9:05 p.m.

Number of witnesses: Many
Number of objects: 6 +
Shape of objects: Round, points of light.

Full Description of event/sighting: I am a taxi driver in Harlow. My fare had requested a stop off at Staple Tye BP Garage to withdraw cash. On exiting the garage there where several people standing in the way and staring skyward. Looking towards their line of sight I witnessed a series of orange lights traversing the sky and heading in a North Easterly direction. This was also witnessed by my two female passengers.

They were traveling in a slightly staggered linear formation approx 1000m apart. They appeared to be quite low in the sky, approx 2 to 4000 feet and speed similar to that of a light aircraft, about 100 - 150 knots. (I held a private pilots license in 1990) These were not conventional aircraft (no navigation lights).

I have a pair of low powered binoculars and tried to focus on one of these "lights", I could not get sharp focus but I got the impression of a flame effect emitting from the rear (opposite to direction of travel) of one of these "lights" Quite simply, I would like to know what was going on there (happy to accept a simple explanation) Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
