UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

December 31st 2008 : Sevenoaks, Kent, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Sevenoaks, Kent, England.

Date: 31st December 2008

Time: 23:58

Number of witnesses: 4

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: Round orange lights

Weather Conditions: Cloudy

Description: A group of us went outside to celebrate the new year by letting off some fireworks. There were two round, unblinking orange lights, travelling at a low height and in formation. At first thought they may be fireworks, but they did not fade. As I used to live in the countryside, I have a good knowledge of how aircraft, satellites and natural phenomena appear in many conditions. After several minutes of travelling in a north westerly direction they blinked out and appeared in a south easterly direction, before finally disappearing. I was not drunk at all and have an extensive knowledge of previous ufo sightings. Very odd that most of the sightings in the previous week resemble this one.


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:

Hello John,

I checked out the UFO balloon footage, and as many other viewers of these orange lights have concluded, I have to say that they do not resemble what the four of us saw. I have had an interest in Ufology for a very long time, and have taught myself to explore many theories as to what these strange sightings actually are, I do not register every light in the sky as a sign of extra terrestrial life. As I have not seen a UFO since I was a child I was unprepared for the wave of scepticism that has overtaken me since the sighting, believe me I have been looking at as many explanations as I can find! As it was new years eve I accept that they may have been some form of celebratory lantern, but the movement appeared far too controlled.

Thanking you for your time.
