Hi there my name is [removed] and I have witnessed something that we cannot explain in the sky above our house. At 22.15 on Saturday night my wife was out the back with our dogs, it was a lovely clear night with hundreds of stars all around us. My wife noticed a orange light behind the trees in the sky and commented that the flights must be back on. I looked over to see the light and was surprised that there was no sound coming from it. We live on the direct flight path to Edinburgh airport and as we are Taxi drivers who work the airport, we would take a interest in flights being put back on since the Ash Cloud has halted them all. Anyway whilst watching this light we both noticed a second light the same but about two hundred feet behind it. I then rushed in and got binoculars from living room. The objects headed over the trees and headed towards Sinclair Way area which is not the flight route normally taken. I raised my binoculars and noticed these objects were sphere in shape and bright orange to red in colour. Still with no sound and directly above us, we screamed at my son to look and he was amazed also at the speed and silence of these objects. There was also what looked like a star moving across the sky at the exact same time.
The objects suddenly gained speed and shot upwards into the night sky. I followed for a few seconds with my binoculars until they vanished. I stayed looking up into the sky for a further twenty mins and saw another white star travelling across the sky again but no sight of the bright objects. These two objects moved faster than the speed of a plane coming into land and did not just travel forward but straight up also.
This was seen by myself and my wife of 30 years and my 20 year old university son. No one had anything to drink and have never witnessed anything like this before so I thought I should report it to someone.
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 but have not received a reply.
