Location of Sighting: Braunstone Gate, Leicester
Date of Sighting: 20th February 2010
Witness Name: M Lewin
Witness Statement: Whilst out celebrating my birthday four of us walked along Braunstone Gate to get our taxi, we saw two doorman staring up into the sky and then others looked up. We followed suit and saw approx 300-400 yrds away quite high, a single orange glowing object travelling quite fast in a straight line making no sound at all. This was quickly followed by two more next to each other and then three more in a triangle formation all travelling at the same speed. Certainly not an aircraft of as no red/green flashing lights just a constant orange glow. Everyone watched in amazement. I have read about lanterns but these were moving too fast and in constant formation. I live out towards Desford and have witnessed the same objects whilst driving near caterpillar last summer but didn’t really know what to make of them. It was weird but convinced it must be some form of aircraft but now I am not so sure. It was totally dark being in the countryside with no light pollution. It was a clear night and they moved side to side and very fast and disappeared. I hadn’t thought about it since but after last night and reading peoples comments on various websites I would love to know what they are.
