Location of Sighting: Tamworth, Staffordshire
Date of Sighting: 31st December
Witness Name: Darren
Witness Statement: I went outside new year to watch a fireworks display. After a few minutes i had noticed these orange lights in the sky. They were not fire works as they didnt diffuse and were traveling in a horizontal direction from the northern to southwestern direction at a guess the speed of a light aircraft. They all seem to be heading in the same direction. After the fireworks had finished a few minutes later there were more lights coming from a north/northeast direction scattered about but also quite low in the sky. As it was not windy there is no way they could have been chinese lanterns as they were moving to fast for a little ballon and only going horizontally across the sky without gaining/losing altitude from what i could see. There were no flashing lights or noises to be heard so im ruling out aircrafts but there were around 7 or 8 maybe a little more of them close together all heading in the same direction. I cannot think of any possible explanation for this.
I am normally a sceptic about things like this as i seem to have logical solutions but this time i am stuck and cant think of anything what they could be ??
