Poulton Le Fylde In Lancashire, UK Lights In Formation

Date: December 25, 2008
Time: Approx: 9:35 p.m.

Hi brian, never reported anything like this, in fact have always been slightly skeptical, but my wife and I witnessed the weirdest thing last night whilst out walking the dog. We live in a town called Poulton le Fylde in Lancashire UK (north west England) we were out walking the dog and at approx 21.35. We witnessed the first one, then a further 2 large bright lights moving fairly slowly overhead. The direction was from the ne and travelling to the w. They seemed to be in formation. We watched them for approx 5-7 minutes until they disappeared into low cloud, they were flying below the cloud which was low when we first witnessed them and appeared fairly large, I had the impression they were moving in a circuitous route.

We were fascinated so decided to retrace our route and 5 minutes later were passed again by the lights, they could have been 3 more but I had the distinct impression it was the same 3 completing a circuit. The first time we saw them a couple had come outside their house and were also watching and commenting on how strange the objects were, on our second sighting we were passed by a guy talking excitedly on his mobile phone about the lights and it is quite possible that a group standing outside the local pub also witnessed the event. As it was xmas day there was very little traffic on the road and the second time they passed us it was apparent that they were absolutely silent, no rotor noise like a chopper ( the local police have 1 incident chopper) and certainly no jet noise. I would describe the coloration as similar to a sodium glow/gold-ish, no evidence of navigation or other lights, my feeling was that the objects were quite large, I have 4 pictures taken on my mobile phone, quality is not great but they are very obviously not conventional aircraft.

I must add that whilst this was xmas day, I was absolutely sober having had just one glass of wine at three in the afternoon, looking on your web site (this is the first time I have ever had reason to research these matters) there seems to be a spate of similar incidents over a short timeframe here in the uk, or are these sightings common? If you are interested I will try to transfer the images from my phone and forward them, on an unrelated topic I share your love of fishing being a very keen lure fisherman specializing in large pike. Many thanks.

Thank you to the witness for a good report.
