UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Greenock, Scotland
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:
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.
