Description: I was driving my car home and on approaching the car park to the flats where I live I noticed a group of spherical yellow lights in the sky moving quite slowly west to east. They were quite low in the sky and there was no noise. I was so fascinated that I stopped the car immediately and got out to look. I thought they must be planes but there were no wing lights blinking or any other identifiable features. Also I wondered why would there be a group of small aircraft in the sky at that time of night? As I watched, the group moved away slowly and then 2 more lights came along behind following the first group. I have never seen anything like this before and never thought I would be motivated to make a report like this! I was so absorbed that I can't be sure of the exact number of lights. As soon as I started to look at the websites, I realised immediately that other people have seen lights like these. Is it possible to find out whether there was any air traffic in my area that night? Unfortunately there were no other witnesses in my car park but someone must have seen them around Tonbridge as it was still really light and they were very clearly visible. The next night I happened to see an ordinary aircraft over my car park. It was moving more quickly than the lights and the shape of the plane and wing lights were easily visible. In comparison, I feel sure that what I saw was not ordinary air traffic.
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:
Have looked at a couple of videos. It is possible that is what I saw, although I am not convinced. It was virtually daylight and the lights seemed bigger & brighter than on these videos. Also they were travelling west to east in a purposeful way rather than just floating around. There was no flickering, just a constant light rather like a car headlight. I suppose I will never know for sure!
Thank you for your reply.
