Portsmouth, Hampshire-30th August 2009

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.

  1. My husband and i also witnessed these balls of orange light. This happened on monday 31st august at around 10pm. We saw them out the garden (east facing) travelling west, there were only 2 and they were about 10 mins apart. There was low cloud but no rain or wind. The lights were definately below the clouds and very bright, there was no noise as they travelled past us. we live in Copnor area. Would love to find out what they were.

  2. I have seen a ball of fire object hovering over gosport in the summer of 1987,watched it for about 1 minute when a purple light came from bottom and began to strobe, I was waiting at a bus stop at the time and was also on the slopes of portsdown hill with a great view harbour.
