Last night 1st Jan Me my Wife and Daughter were looking at the fireworks at Chigwell Essex, approx 5mins past 12 there appeared shapes in the Sky, travelling from Epping direction towards Abridge, first showing there were 6 they disappeared into the clouds, there followed another 3, they gave the appearance of an Orange colour, we were not on our own in this sighting as many many other people witnessed this.
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:
I would guess it was a possibility they were balloons, discount nothing, I am not to sure now, it would have been better if I had seen them closer or rather taken note of the wind direction.
I will add this as a runner on a definite sighting, when we were living at Stoke Newington (Manse Rd London), I was aged about 5 or 6, 1945/1946 the war had just ended. I went along to knock for my friend further along the Rd, I stood looking at his door, and when I did turn round and look into the road there it was, positive that was a space ship, it filled the road kerb to kerb. Mother had always told me if ever I heard funny noises run straight down the air raid shelter, to do that I had to walk round it, strange thing was every thing was eerily quiet, not a sound, I went down the shelter and slept on the bunk that was allocated to us. I have only ever told very few people as most would not believe me, and in fact when my wife told her brother this morning he thought it funny. Personally I would love to go and be hypnotised just to prove it actually happened.
