Location of Sighting: Blackburn, Lancashire
Date of Sighting: Sat 1st August 2009
Witness Name: Craig
Witness Statement: Four of us witnessed a total of 14 solid yellowy-orange lights moving across the sky in a south easterly direction above Blackburn, Lancashire. They appeared one after another, sometimes two at a time over a ten minute period at a height of approx 2000ft & climbing. Two of us went outside to see whether they were planes or not. When outside we could hear no engine noise (& they were low) nor could we see any flashing lights like they have on planes or helicopters. These objects were definitley NOT chinese lanterns, as they were strongly lit & under powered flight. The lights all came from the same point in the sky (over billinge hill direction) & followed the same path (south easterly) across the town. The weather conditions were clear, no wind & it was dusk. Each light took about 90seconds to go from horizon to horizon.
