Have you any ideas what this could have been.....see attached photo...I cropped one photo to try and see it better but they aren't very good.

It came from the Tankerton direction and went towards to Herne Bay, there was no went slow...and was bright...there was 2 ....about 10 mins apart...there's got to be a logical explanation...!!

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 your reply, yes it's possible that this was what I saw, although these seem more upright, what I saw seem to be the other way round, the photos arent really very clear, but it looked like the front was more yellow and the back/end was more orangy. What ever it was just went along at the same height and speed.

I never knew anything about those balloons, but if I think about it realistically these or something like them are more than likely what I saw.

I hope you don't think I'm a looney!! (no I don't) It was just that it got me thinking, so I put in google something like strange lights over Whitstable, and your link came up.

But thank you again
