UFO Over Otley, Ilkley, Guisley, Burley In Wharfedale West Yorkshire Orange Objects

Date: December 25, 2008
Time: Approx: 5:20 p.m.

Hi, We were returning for our Christmas meal tonight when my wife saw 4 orange orbs floating in the sky, moving westwards. Originally I thought they were aircraft taking off from Leeds Bradford Airport, as the last in the sequence appeared to be perfectly lined up with the end of the runway and the typical take off pattern. However, after 20 seconds or so the 2 middle ones faded away, I believe they were being obscured by clouds as the night sky was NOT clear. They appeared to be equidistant apart, just after the middle 2 disappeared (at slightly different rates) another appeared MUCH brighter, again I assume this was due to it being more visible in the air, again a similar distant apart. Even though they were a similar distance apart they were not position in a uniform manner, IE slightly different heights and positions. The main reason I can call them UFO’ they had no running lights as standard aircraft, AND they were too close together to of been planes taking off from LBA. This was around 5:20pm GMT today (25th Dec). Cheers. Thank you to the witness for their report.
