UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

January 1st 2009 : Greenock, Renfrewshire, Scotland

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Greenock, Scotland

Date: 1/1/09

Time: 23.17

Number of witnesses: 3

Number of objects: 3

Shape of objects: Round fireball/bright light.

Weather Conditions: Slightly cloudy

Description: I was out the back having a cigarette, when a reasonably slow moving object was moving high up in the sky, it wasn't making any noise like you would expect from a helicopter or aeroplane. The object was a bright orange circular light, it looked like it was on fire, or a fireball. As the first one moved out of sight, another followed in the exact same path, then a third one followed after.


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:

Hi John

The light was very similar, but the flight path of each of them was identical, no fluctuation, whereas the video ones seemed to be all over the place.

I noticed on your site that there was a similar sighting last year on the 2nd jan in the same area so it could be some sort of annual release of these balloons.
