UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

September 20th 2008 : Newmarket, Suffolk, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Newmarket, Suffolk, UK

Date: 20 September 2008

Time: 1945

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: Squat balloon shape

Weather Conditions: Clear, twilight

Description: Driving along the A14 we saw two dumpy shaped balloon objects, one hovering over the sliproad to Newmarket and the other off to the side of the road. Appeared to be dark grey metallic in colour, solid with no obvious sharp edges. One had a faint red light glowing underneath. Difficult to gauge size, but perhaps 2-3m long, approx 100ft off the ground.


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:

Hi John,

No, definitely not one of the UFO Balloons - the pair we saw had much more solid looking bodies with no hole at the bottom and certainly no flames. One did have a faint red light on the underside, but it was a sharp point of light rather than a diffuse internal glow.
