UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Date: October 9th 2009
Number of witnesses: One other
Number of objects: About 20
Shape of objects: Orbs
Weather Conditions: Still, chilly, slight drizzle, very cloudy
Description: My husband and I were standing in the back garden waiting for our dog. We looked up to see 3 orange orbs float fairly slowly across the sky, closely followed by another three, then a couple more, and then a slow trickle of several more, until we counted about 20 of them. 2 of the orbs were larger than the others. It was pitch dark due to dark clouds, but I thought I could detect a pencil like shape at the end of each orb, but it's hard to say as it was so dark and these orange lights were so high in the sky. I thought I could also detect a slight whooshing noise, but it was very faint. They were almost silently gliding along. I panicked at the sheer numbers of these lights - it felt like an invasion, so I tried to hurry my husband inside the house, but he was too fascinated by them.
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:
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I agree, it probably was Chinese Lanterns.
