Description: To be perfectly honest this is my second sighting the first occuring some thirty five to thirty six years ago. Although the two sightings are totally different the similarities are amazing, for one thing they happened within 10 miles of each other. I am 48 years old perfectly sane and honest. As I do not recall the exact time and date of the first account I will list it with this most recent account.
Saturday 3/10/09 approximately 10:30pm
Myself and three young lads were in the car park of a pub in eastrea enjoying a cigarette when one of the lads spotted this orange light in the sky moving at some speed. We all stood staring trying to work out what we were seeing. It was solid not flashing and although at some distance from us, too large to be an aircraft's navigational light. although there was some cloud cover this thing was at a good altitude. I was able to assess this as some stars were visible. I know of no aircraft that can move at the speed this thing was travelling at. Also, and this was weird and we all noticed it although at first it appeared to be travelling in a straight line its flight path definitely fluctuated, kind of like a blip on a screen, we watched it out of sight, total time less than a minute.
Account 2 August 1973\4 time approximately 4pm
I was thirteen to fourteen years old can't remember exactly but I'll never forget what I saw. At the time it was the six weeks holiday from school and I had been out with my friends playing. We lived on a farm in march 10 miles from Eastrea in the fens, which is extremely flat. I was cycling home when to my left I noticed two orange lights just above the horizon. I stopped to observe I remember it was overcast so it was difficult to judge how far away they were from me but it appeared to be quite some distance. They were moving at some speed positioned one above the other. Use this dash / <-- as a point of refference picture one light at the base and one at the tip of the dash positioned about two feet above the horizon. Now it gets bizzare. The distance from one light to the other was about 6 inches this was not a Harrier jump jet or two of them, they made no sound. Suddenly and these things were shifting they just stopped, then they seemed to shift rotating to horizontal. Then they went vertically straight up and out of sight at twice if not three times the speed they were initially travelling at. Nothing on earth can move that fast and in the way it did.
