Corby, Northamptonshire-15th July 2012

Location of Sighting: Corby Northamptonshire
Date of Sighting: 15th July 2012
Time: 01:00 hrs
Witness Name: Tom Maxwell
Witness Statement: ORANGE OVAL SHAPES

Whilst out walking my dogs on Sunday morning at about 1.00 on 15th July 2012, I couldn’t help but notice two surprisingly large orange oval shapes moving from the West ( Willowbrook Road area ) in an Easterly direction ( toward the old British Steel factory ) , probably about three to four miles apart, but could have been more due to the height being at cloud level. At first I thought helicopters, but they had no sound, were too big, orange in color and moving at the same pace and direction too steadily. One was obscured by clouds momentarily then appeared to be moving higher until it disappeared. The other continued overhead on it’s course until it was out of view. They’re size was of that similar to a small moon. They’re speed was very slow and consistent. They definitely weren’t meteors, they had no fire trails, they weren’t flickering, and were moving far too slowly. It was the strangest thing I have ever seen. Although I have searched the web for explanations I can find non. However I have found many similar sightings and videos recorded from around the world since 2009, again with no explanations.

  1. Intriguing.Sounds similar to the Rotherham sighting, but 17 days later. Could be a link.

  2. No doubt people will try tell you they were Chinese Lanterns.

  3. Definitely not Chinese Lanterns, too synchronized in their flight path, and too high up. Don’t know if it’s my imagination or not, but there does seem to be a lot more airplane activity in the sky the last few days. Maybe someone is taking this seriously. It’s doing my head in that’s for sure. Can’t believe no one else seems to have seen this. Very X-Files stuff.

  4. The truth is out there 😉

  5. i saw something similar about 2 yrs ago i was on willowbrook too and it was the eeriest thing to see,3 orange lights equally spaced out with no sound no flickering and following the same path

  6. looks like ya all need to have an early night, instead of walkng the streets in the early hours

  7. I seen something similar to this in September 2016 over the Corby/ Kettering bi-pass road that leads to Stanion. Flying over head the entire drive down the long road before we reached the round about and as we turn the corner it disappeared out of sight. Oval, large and warm in colour was very strange
