UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

October 5th 2008 : Buckhurst Hill, Essex, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Buckhurst Hill, Essex

Date: 5-Oct-08

Time: 19:59

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 7-9

Shape of objects: Round objects, like a reddy orange light

Weather Conditions: Calm

Description: My girlfriend was sitting on the sofa and shouted out have a look at this. I ran to the window to have a look and see 7 reddy orange lights in the sky in a formation of a scattered line following one another. I originally thought it could be a line of Chinook helicopters. So I ran to the balcony and stood outside and watched them but there was no sound coming from the objects at all which confirmed to me that they was not Chinook helicopters as they have a distinctive sound to them. I watched them slowly disappear in to the sky ascending in to the sky. I did try to get footage on my phone but it did not come out as good as I hoped.

Please if any one can give me any information then please do not hesitate in contacting me.


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

I have had a look at the video and I must say them balloons look very similar to the lights I see in the sky that night. But I still cant explain the ascend of the lights which happened very quickly.

Is it possible to get a report from the aviation authority if I gave them the exact date and time would they be able to to tell me of all the aircraft or helicopters going over at that time or would it be confidential.

Sorry if I cant supply you with all the information you needed it is very frustrating.

Kind regards
