Description: Shortly before eleven I went upstairs to my bedroom and as I glanced out of the window to the sky a bright red and orange glow caught my eye to the right of the house. I watched for at least 30 seconds trying to fathom it out and my heart jumped as I decided it was a plane on fire. It was going at the speed of what I thought was an helicopter which often circle our area.

I ran to the front of the house as it came over then I ran downstairs and out the front door calling my husband to come and see. He witnessed it just as its glow reduced and then completely disappear. After about 2 minutes I made my way upstairs again only to see the exact same bright light appear in the same spot as before taking the same route. This time my husband and I were outside the front door before it appeared over the front of the house. We watched it take the exact same route as the first and again disappear in what seemed like the same place. While we stood discussing this yet another came over repeating the same procedure. Three in all. I grabbed some binoculars but there was no shape at all in the object so didn't look any different with them.

If I had to describe a size I would say the size of a full moon, but with no define to the circle more like fire spitting out around it, glowing very bright red and orange like fire and silent. It was hard to say whether it was a large object far away or small at a low height, due to no cloud around. There was about 3 minute interval between, pretty much like when planes line up for landing.

I have never taken interest in U.F.O. but would love to know what we saw even if someone admitted to releasing UFO balloons it would at least stop us from wondering. They did however look nothing like the pictures on this site of balloons, and if they were would they have followed such an exact route and speed?
