Number of objects: 4
At around 10 -10.30 pm on 22nd May 2010 I was sitting outside with my husband and 4 friends when we saw 2 orange lights travelling from south to north. They were travelling at a similar speed to aeroplanes but we didn't think they were. As they got closer they got smaller and disappeared as if they had ascended quickly. I turned away and saw another light to the front of my house, behind the trees and over the fields, this light was larger as if closer and travelled west to east. Another light appeared again travelling from south to north and again disappeared as the first ones.
A work colleague also saw these lights from another part of Notts. We could not explain what they were. We wondered if anyone else saw these lights and could explain what they were?!
UFOINFO Note: I did ask the witness to look at the UFO Balloons website and for the name of the town where the sighting took place but have not had a reply.
Update June 23rd 2010:
Hi John, I live in Watnall which is on the north easterly side of Nottingham.
The lights we saw were not the lanterns as they were travelling towards us like aeroplanes would but were not aeroplanes. We do get a lot of planes coming our way as they circle backwards and forward to East Midlands Airport but these definately were not them. I did think they could be helicopters but there was no sound and you do not usually see two flying towards you at the same time. Very strange and no explanation.
