UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Gainsborough, Lincolnshire
Date: February 10 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Round
Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: 3 orange/yellow lights in the sky, evenly spaced apart quite some distance. They were low down in the sky to the south. The 1 on the left was slightly higher than the middle light, and the middle one slightly higher then the 1 on the right. The light on the right vanished, then the other 2 seemed to fade in and out, becoming very bright at times. They appeared not to be moving at all. We could see planes and lots of stars at the same time, however the orange/yellow lights were in the distance and much lower than the stars and planes. We watched the lights for about 10 minutes until the remaining 2 just vanished.
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 for the quick response. I have had a look at pictures/footage of the balloons/lanterns and cannot rule this out as possibly being what we saw, if I could ask though, we think the 'lights' were about 10 - 15 miles away, would the balloons be visible at such a distance?
