UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
January 24th 2009 : Chester, Cheshire, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Chester, England
Date: January 24th 2009
Time: Aprox 7.15pm
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 5
Shape of objects: Circular
Weather Conditions: Dry
Description: 3 very bright, orange, circular lights approached from the south, southwest. Silent. When the 3 were very close to where I live a forth approached quickly, as if trying to 'catch-up' with the first ones. First 3 changed direction and headed north, 2 moving very quickly and ultimately 'faded away' as they grew smaller with distance. The 3rd appeared to move slowly until the 4th almost 'caught up' when it then followed the first 2. The forth then followed the first 3. They had all approached from the south /southwest moving northeast, then very definitely changed direction moving north/northwest.
They were roughly at a low helicopter flight height (we often have helicopters flying over) and quickly gained height (I think - it was dark) after changing direction and flying away from me. They also appeared exactly the same when flying away from me as when approaching, therefore I assume that they were spherical.
TV/Radio: Not done so as yet. Still undecided.
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:
Thank you. No, they definitely did not look like the balloons. Besides which, the way in which they moved and changed direction would indicate that the objects were not moving with the air current alone - plus their variable speed.
