Location of Sighting: Portsmouth
Date of Sighting: 14/12/2009
Time: 16.55 – 17.03
Witness Name: cheryl hawkes
Witness Statement: I left for work at 16.55, and saw the 1st one as soon as I stepped out of the house. It takes me around 4 minutes to walk to work – ambulance station on Eastern Road. Anyone who lives in Portsmouth knows how busy that road is at 5 in the afternoon, so hundreds of people must have seen these lights. The 1st 3 were exact distance apart in a diaginal line. Then another 2 more random ones appeared. One by one they disappeared into the clouds. There was no sound, or flashing. They were quite slow moving but seemed to go close together just before disappearing. They were kind of red/orange in colour, and round. I have read the bit on here about chinese lanterns, and I realise this is possible. Just wondered if anyone else who saw them had an opinion on what they think they were.
