Witness Statement
I was letting the dogs out and was looking at the sky when a double green light like headlights started strobing in the sky, I called my husband and we both stood for about 3 minutes watching these quick strobes of green light seemingly shooting down and past us in the sky. When it stoped we watched for 15 minutes to see if there were planes or lightning or anything else’s but all we saw were stars. I’d say there were maybe 30 flashes quite long in length and repeatedly in exactly the same position, direction length and width and they were perfectly straight.

St James, Exeter-18th July 2009-Updated

Location of Sighting: Exeter (St James)
Date of Sighting: 18 July 2009
Time: 22:42
Witness Name: Anon

Witness Statement: Went outside to take the rubbish out last night when I noticed two bright orange lights moving fast in the sky, going in a single straight line from West to East, below cloud level. No noise whatsoever and it was a very still night. They went out of sight but were followed by another one, then two more and one final one. All following the exact same line, except the two that were together, which flew side by side.
The light emanating from these objects was steady (not flickering like a Chinese lantern) and quite bright – was able to take a picture with my iPhone 2mp camera and they were clearly visible. Not sure what they were but they were too high up and moved too fast and purposeful to be lanterns, imho!

Hi Andy

Attached is the picture I took. There’s not much too see but the objects were completely round and didn’t have a tail – they appear that way in the picture because I was trying to follow them with my camera. On reading Stephen’s comment, I should add that one of them did indeed appear to stop for a moment, and then resume course.

I’ve been doing some research on Google and I guess there is a strong possibility that these were just sky lanterns. Although I recall a similar incident back in July 2007 which occurred in bright daylight, again over my house. Both my boyfriend and I saw several fast-moving silver objects in the sky, some of them literally turning off at sharp 90-degree angles. I’ll see if I can get his recollection of events to confirm!

Springfield Rd, St James, Exeter-18th July 2009

Location of Sighting: Exeter (Springfield Rd, St James)
Date of Sighting: 18th July 2009
Time: 22:35 Hrs
Witness Name: Stephen

Witness Statement: Saturday 18th July 2009 at 22.35 Hrs a low flying orange light approached my house from the west, as it neared, following behind were three more flying in a equalateral triangle formation, I watched these fly overhead (top of Springfield Rd, St James), and then noticed four more following, these were in a close but irregular formation.
These having flew overhead, I proceeded to the shop to put money in my phone, I noticed that one had remained on the outskirts of Exeter to the north-east, upon reaching St James bridge, I stopped a girl and pointed this out to her and told her about the ones that flew over my house, a couple of minutes later another was seen approaching from the west, this stopped (probably around St David’s area) and remained there as the other remained in the east, I then went to the shop and both had gone upon my return.

This incident then reminded me of about three wks ago, when I was crossing the bridge on the way home (around dusk), I noticed a red light in the west, thinking it was Mars I searched for Venus (as I do), only then did I realise that it was completely overcast and no stars were visible, I watched this orange light as I walked, I lost sight of it as I passed by some houses and it had gone when the sky came back into view.

Well thats about it.
