UFOINFO E-mail Sighting Report

Location: Woolavington, Bridgwater, Somerset, England

Date: August 23rd 2008

Time: 9:15pm

Number of witnesses: Several

Number of witnesses 1 - 8 depending on witness

Shape of objects: Ball

Description: Hi!

On Sat 23rd Aug 2008, we were travelling from West Huntspill to Woolavington at about 9.15 PM. I suddenly saw a orangey/red ball hovering over Woolavington housing estate. When we got to my daughters house at ***** Road, the ball moved slowly over us and then off in the direction of Shipham/Cheddar. All the time it was silent.

When we were going back to West Huntspill, my daughter phoned to say she could see three more of the objects and they were in a straight line, and were of equal distance apart. they were also silent. The next day there was a phone-in on Orchard FM, and lots of people from as far away as Taunton and Curry Rivel, and Bridgwater and also Shipham had also seen the objects. Some people in Bridgwater saw about eight of them, all in a line, the same as my daughter had saw.

I hope this story will be of interest and maybe use to you.

Best Wishes


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:

Good afternoon,

The objects we saw were not like the lanterns shown on the site, they were more of a solid colour, with no flickering at all, and they were completely round.

Although I expect that the lanterns are made in different shapes and sizes.

After I had seen the object and I had time to think, I thought that maybe they were lanterns, but could find nothing like it all on any of the sites.

But the only thing that I did find was a sighting over a lake in Wales, which was dated in August 2008, and that was the same, at the moment I can not remember the site, but when I find it I will let you know so that you can have a look yourself.

I have looked at the Bridgwater gazette and other people also saw these objects within an hour of my sighting also.

Thank you very much for your interest and for replying to my e-mail.

Best Wishes


UFOINFO Note: The report the witness saw was "UFO nearby Moon 19 August 2008 Lake Wales" which is available on several sites including YouTube. Please note that the sighting was not in Wales (the country) but Lake Wales in Florida, USA.
