UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

December 22nd 2008 : Collier Row, Essex, England


Highfield Road, Collier Row, Essex UK 4 Lights Glowing Orange Like Flame

Date: December 22, 2008
Time: 9:30 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Highfield Road, Collier Row, Essex.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 4
Shape of objects: Unknown (They were too difficult to see as they were glowing like flame).

Full Description of event/sighting: At around 9:30pm I was watching TV with a friend of mine when all of a sudden my mother called my name from the bottom of the stairs, I asked her what she wanted, to which she replied 'Look out of the window'.

My friend and I looked out of the window and saw 4 lights in the sky which were glowing orange like flame. We immediately ran downstairs to join my mother in the garden to witness these things closer.

The sky was kind of foggy that night and so by the time my friend and I had reached the garden 1 of the objects had disappeared. The remaining 3 seemed to be flying in formation in a South-easterly direction.

The sighting lasted around 5 minutes until all of the objects disappeared into the fog (at least that's how it appeared).

The lights were not flashing at all and were larger then they should be for commercial planes and so, even though they were travelling along a flight path (there is an airport 30 miles in that direction), I don't believe they were standard planes.

I can't imagine they were hot air balloons either as I saw no balloon shape above the glowing lights and the conditions were rather unappealing for a hot air balloon ride (It was dark, cold and foggy).

There was also no noise to be heard from the objects, which from the distance they appeared to be at to my friend and I would not be out of the ordinary, however, my mother had seen them when they were above her and there was apparently still no noise, which would be unusual.

This sighting was very weird and I have never seen anything similar to it before,
I did however read this http://www.ufoinfo.com/sightings/uk/081122a.shtml (which is why I am filling in this form) which tells me that whatever I saw is not uncommon in this area and so I will be keeping an eye out and will be sure to contact you again if they reappear.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
