UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
January 9th 2009 : St Helens, Merseyside, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: St Helens, Merseyside
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Indistinguishable, however, the light emanating from them was circular.
Weather Conditions: Clear skies, still
Description: Tracking South West to North East in the sky 2 lights travelling at a constant speed. I caught sight of one as it travelled into the distance only for it to be followed by another light which was orange/yellow. At first, I obviously thought these were planes as I live relatively close to Liverpool John Lennon airport, however, there were no accompanying flashing lights and furthermore, if the lights were on a plane, the necessary height for the light to be a plane's lights would have made the engines audible. I have looked for information on the web and have read some details on Chinese lanterns, however, I am adamant this cannot be the explanation given the velocity of the lights as there was no wind at all.
