UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

January 1st 2009 : Shoeburyness, Essex, England


Shoeburyness Essex UK Numerous Orange Colored Lights

Date: January 1, 2009
Time: 12:05 a.m.

Hi, there, at 12.05am New Years day, my partner kids and neighbors were out front seeing in the New Year. We were watching the fireworks going off and we were all amazed to see a bright orange light. It looked like a large twinkling star, but it was bright orange. It was then followed by nine other lights moving very fast and in sequence and when they each got to a point and faded they moved from the east to west. We live in Shoeburyness Essex and we akk spent a large amount of time after trying to work out what it could be. I have seen clips of UFO balloons and they don't look like them as these were twinkling and very bright orange.

They had no other lights, although we discussed that it could be military aircraft, again no lights and we didn't think it was plausible as these lights were travelling quite close together. A neighbor further down came to wish us happy New Year and started telling us he had seen strange orange lights earlier in the evening. Well I just thought I'd share this with you, we were very sober and whilst I don't want to make a fuss about it, we are all very baffled, that is the ten of us that witnessed it. It actually frightened the younger ones, so if you can shed any light we would be grateful. Thank you for your time.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
