Description: Driving back from Manchester I saw a large white light over the Dee Estuary from the junction of the A540. Thinking it was a plane coming in to land at Liverpool I though how low it was so continued to watch it whenever I could through the trees. The bright light disappeared but I saw a string of 5 orange lights moving from where it had been. Driving towards Neston I saw them periodically through the trees. However, as I sat at red traffic lights at 2 mills they passed in front of me. No more than 100 feet high my first thought was they were a group of para gliders as they were moving that slowly. I moved forward as the lights turned green but stopped my car in the middle of the carriageway and wound my window down expecting to hear the drone of an engine. Nothing. I turned my own engine off as I was so surprised. No sound whatsoever. All the lights were equidistant and moving at exactly the same speed. I noticed the car behind me had stopped as well although we didnt speak. It was weird. Although a clear night I thought how dangerous it was if someone was flying so low as there are power cables about. I watched the lights as they headed towards M56 direction - I turned to check the road to ensure I was not going to cause an accident and when I looked back the lights were gone.
Although I was tired and on my way home, I was so intrigued by the incident I drove to Ness Gardens bus turning to see if I could spot the original white light from where these cam from. Totally weird but when I checked the internet I notice people have been spotting these for a number of years.
By the way I'm 49 sensible and had not had a drink at all. Would love to know any theories.
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:
It is not inconceivable these could have been fire balloons except that they were all equidistant - all the same brightness and moving in a totally straight line at the same speed.
If there had been a noise I would have said they were from a para glider but they were so low and flew right above me I do not think they were either.
