Hi all,

This morning, as all mornings, I went onto my balcony for a cigarette at approx 5am. I noticed this low continuous droning sound which I never have heard before then notice two red lights moving slowly across the sky. I fought it must be a plane, so I continued to watch. Realising that the red lights were not aligned as wings of a plane would be, but at a 90 degree angle. After watching for a few seconds 3 white lights appeared in a triangle shape then went off. This continued to happen, as it fly in my direction. These white lights were smaller than the permanent red ones. Also what I expected is the front of this flying thing looked like a miniature electric storm, white flashes reminding me of the sparks you get off an angle grinder when grinding metal.

Has anyone had a similar sighting to this at all?

No, I was rooted to the spot gazing up in disbelief!!! However the sight has effected me in an addictive manner constantly looking into the sky with phone and digital camera in pocket incase I see this once more. Searching the net for possible similar sightings. Was not a believer until Sunday morning but am developing quite an addiction into this subject now

so do you say that there were 5 UFOs or 1 UFO?

never heard of a sighting like this, how high in the sky do you think they were?

Any guess if the red lights were part if the same craft or separate? Where did it go/ how far could you observe it to? E.g. Off the horizon?

I'm no expert but at a guess I would say only the 1, I think it would be the same craft as the lights were same distant from each other at all times. I watched it for about 2mins as it was moving quite slowly and I wouldn't say it wasn't that high at all, maybe a few hundred ft but that again is a guess. I noticed it first over a tree and watched it until it went over the block of flats I live in!
