Hi, My husband & I have just seen what we believe to be an unexplained sighting in Wombourne, Staffordshire.
Driving home around 12.45am 3rd January saw one bright orange light approaching from east. Pointed it to my husband saying looks like helicopter but with an unusual light.
Seemed to be searching.
Then we saw another one a short distance away and then another. Moving fairly slow. We had stopped the car at this point to watch and even got out of car. The light from all three was a constant, very orange, much like a sodium street light. We had killed the engine to listen - but no sound what so ever. No apparent green, red lights. As we watched we decided to move just around the corner to get a better view over open field. They seemed to form a triangulation and then gradually disappear. This was one of the clearest nights with a mass of stars.
We drove towards a local small airfield & then on towards a military airfield but saw nothing else.
On looking on your sight for sightings I noticed the one for Xmas day over Telford Shropshire - approx 10 miles away. Sighting seems very similar.
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:
Thanks for your response.
I have looked at the video footage. Very interesting but I don't think it was balloon/lanterns.
The lights were very constant - quite solid/strong. Very much like a street light both in strength n colour.
