Location: Connah's Quay/Flintshire/North Wales
Date: 05 16 2009
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 8
Shape of objects: Quite big, round & glowing.
Weather Conditions: Calm, dry, dark.
Description: In all honesty I have never before really thought about ufo's or anything of the kind!... Until last night - at approx. 10.05pm. My mum had put our dog out in the garden, 5 mins later I opened the patio door & let her in, when doing so I glanced up to the sky and in all my 23 years have never seen anything like what I saw, I was absolutely stunned....there I saw 3 boldly glowing, orangey-red, round, silent floating (though speedily floating) objects, in a south -westerly direction! I shouted my mum who was in the kitchen, she came and I saw the same shock on her face as I had just experienced, she then urged me to get my dad, as I did 3 more appeared, one behind the other, unevenly spaced out yet all roughly at the same height. We all stared in disbelief wondering what these objects were (my parents are amongst the most rational/logical people you can come across, so to see them so shocked/baffled was also strange for me to see). Altogether we saw about 8 (as we stood on our patio for what we think was about 1-2 minutes) then they seemed to rise higher in the sky just above our house, then all of a sudden vanish!!
We tried to think of every possible logic answer to the question of what it was we had just witnessed, but nothing fitted!! It was the most strange eerie experience we have ever had!
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:
I have had a look at the balloons/lanterns and can most definitely say this is not what we saw. My parents also spotted in our local paper on Friday just gone, that someone had written it and described suspicious sightings in the sky...exactly the same time/date as we did and the description is exactly the same.
