UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdpm
July 8th 2009 : Esher, Surrey, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Esher, Surrey, United Kingdom
Date: July 08 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 8-10
Shape of objects: Orb
Weather Conditions: Cloudy
Description: Around 11:30pm I let the dog outside and noticed 8-10 bright orange orbs moving slowly across the sky. No noise or other lights. Orbs seemed to be in random formation although moved together at same speed and in same direction. They changed direction from an easterly over my house and headed south across towards Claygate, Surrey.
The photo taken was on an iPhone as the objects disappeared over the trees. The last object's light 'went out' as it flew away however against the dark blue of the sky we could make out the dark silhouette of the craft. The lights were in the sky for about 2-3 minutes and did not stop.
If you magnify the picture you will see the lights actually seem to be triangular shape.
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:
Thanks for your email.
My partner and I did review the videos and also look at other incidents of such UFO Balloons / Chinese Lanterns. We genuinely do not believe what we saw was this.
a) The objects seemed quite high in the sky so would have been much larger than a lantern. It is difficult to gauge size obviously but I would guess at least the size of a large hot air balloon.
b) The colour was a rich constant fire-like glow –there was no flickering or change in the colour of the objects which can be seen in the videos.
c) The key fact is that one of the objects stopped glowing completely as it approached the woods behind our house. Against the dark blue of the sky we could still see a black object that had been giving off the light travelling with the other orbs. If it was ‘powered’ by the heat of a lantern light then the object would not have continued to fly without light. This occurred just after the picture we took.
Hope this helps. There seems to be a number of reports of similar this now that I have searched the internet. Have you any idea what these are likely to be? Any rumors of military aircraft or is the general consensus aliens??
