I never thought that I would be in a position whereby I would call the police to report objects in the sky that I could not identify. I was in the garden with my partner having a cigarette. I was facing the East anf my partner was facing the West. She asked me what some objects were that were behind me. When I looked I could not believe what I was looking at as there were six global, orange, almost firey coloured globes drifting silently from the North, headed South, towards the English channel.

I tried to obtain some footage using my mobile phone which does identify 2 of the globes but they are very distant, in the footage. To the naked eye they were probably about a mile away and very easy to see. They were in a random formation although one seemed to be the leader. They were travelling slowly and quite simply disappeared one by one. I went upstairs to see them more clearly by which time 5 had disappeared but one continued over the channel and then equally disappeared.

The visibilty was good although there was reasonably low cloud in the area. My step daughter witnessed the sighting independently from her bedroom. There was a power cut in our street only, at the time.

I reported the sighting to the Police and they in turn asked the Ministry of Defence to contact me. I was given a number and left a message.

For fear of sounding like a lunatic I have not reveled my name to anyone other than the MOD and police but I made an enquiry with the local newspaper and they told me that no one else reported these globes and the police said the same. I find this odd as they were very visible in the sky.

As yet I have not been contacted by the MOD which makes feel like a fool as all 3 of us saw them and nobody else seems to have. What happens from her, do I just forget about it? Will I ever know if it was a phenomenum or aircraft? Kind Regards
