Bright Orange Lights Over Strood Medway Kent UK

Date: June 5, 2010
Time: 10:40 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Strood, Medway, Kent.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: Approx: 6
Shape of Objects: Spherical.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Last night at around 22:40 in Strood, Medway, Kent, myself and a friend witnessed a bright orange light in the sky with a very faint white halo around the outside which appeared to rotate. It approached from the west at approximately 1000 feet high and possibly 1 mile away. It was moving in an arc towards the south, totally silent and in no way a helicopter or plane or anything identifiable.

Its speed was a steady pace similar to that of a helicopter given the same height etc. It then slowed to a stop, hovered, reversed and then began moving away back towards the west. Then another appeared over the roof tops following a similar course and then another and all were identical in appearance, speed, height etc. As all three moved away out of sight, another appeared and then another and another and again all behaving in a similar fashion over a period of approximately 5-10 minutes.

Its worth noting that the wind direction was opposite to that of the lights and so I can rule out with total confidence Chinese lanterns or hot air balloons, and besides having seen both before, I would of recognized them as such and these lights were definitely driven by their own power and with purpose.

This was a warm night and many people would of been out in their gardens etc., and so this must of been witnessed by many others. I have researched the internet and found lots of other accounts similar to mine and most notably the same night following a Google search for "UFO Kent 5th June 2010". Please contact me if you have any information you can pass on to me regarding these strange orange lights!
