Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/7/2006 19:10 (Entered as : 10/07/06 19:10)
Reported: 10/29/2006 2:50:15 PM 14:50
Posted: 10/30/2006
Location: Derbyshire (UK/England),
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 mins
3 fireballs, 2 traveling in close formation, 1 some distance away, maybe 500 mters. They suddenly veered away and out of sight.

I was traveling in a northerly direction in my Car when I first saw the 3 balls of light in the distance, at first I thought they may be Micro light aircraft, But when I pulled in and got out of my car they apeared to change course and head into a westerly direction, as I looked more intensely at them, there appeared to be some sort of structure within the ball, like a triangle, this again made me think they could be Microlights, but then, 2 of them seemed to speed rapidly and disapeared into the clouds. The third light just seem`d to stop for a while may be 20 secs, then it to rapidly went into the cloud cover.

Weather conditions: Dry with broken Cloud, Just turned dusk/ nightfall.

Estimated distance from my position: 500-1000 mtrs. I took a photo with Mobile phone but cant seem to get it to a magnification to see them any closer.

The reason I am contacting you, is to see if you may of had reports from Derbyshire for this date, I could`nt seem to find a site like this in Britain, may be you could put me in touch with one?

Well thanks for your time, Great Site,
