Location of Sighting: Portsmouth
Date of Sighting: Sun 30 Aug 09
Time: 2130 (approx)
Witness Name: Paul
Witness Statement: My wife and I live on Portsdown Hill with a south facing set of windows in the main rooms. I personally witnessed 3 orange balls that appeared to be on fire travelling from south to north. There was low cloud and drizzle, but the lights were clear and appeared to be below the cloud base.
When I went to get my camera and went to the north of the house, I witnessed the last of the shapes disappearing back up into the clouds.
The objects were moving at (around) 200-250 mph and the wind was neglible so this was certainly not Chinese lanterns.
