UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

1989 : Kettering, Northants, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Kettering, Northants, England.

Date: 1989 I think, could be a year either way.

Time: Late afternoon

Number of witnesses: Myself and six kids.

Number of objects: Around 15 could have been more.

Shape of objects: They were'nt objects, just round lights!

Weather Conditions: It was a nice day, I remember that much. It was summer time.

Description: I feel completely silly telling someone about it after all these years,because I cant explain it very well. But here goes. It was so nice that day I volunteered to take my son and a few of his friends for a game of football. We went to the nearby field at the back of Montagu school, they have two fields we were on the lower field with the goal posts. It was starting to get late and the light was starting to fade, but it was still light. We were standing around and we all noticed these strange round lights going over head, they were quite low in the sky. They were randomly placed, no pattern. But what was strange was the fact that they were all moving in the same direction at the same speed. They were all the same shape and size.They were like bright white circles. We watched them for a good while as they were'nt traveling very fast. I tried to watch them for as far as I could but I could'nt see past a huge hedge. They did'nt disapear, I just lost sight of them.

TV/Radio After our encounter I scoured the papers and watched the news for light shows, air plane shows but nothing. I could'nt find an explanation for what we had seen. I hope someone can shed some light on it, as it has been bothering me all these years! I did look at the air ballon site but they are not what I saw. I have also been through everyones sightings but still nothing is similiar.

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:

I did look at the sight, but it is not what I remember seeing. I have searched other sites as well, but nothing comes close. They did'nt change shape or have the odd one going off in other directions. They were all moving in a syncronised way. As far as I can remember there was no wind and no sound coming from them, as you could still hear traffic from the nearby main road. There was no flickering from them, they were like spot lights without the beam. The strange thing I do remember is that they had no outline, or any suggestion that they were attatched to anything and being that they were so low in the sky you would think that you would see something. I havent seen anything like it before or since.
