Three Mysterious Orange Lights Seen Over The Woolwich Area UK

Date: September 1, 2010
Time: 8:45 p.m.

Hello Brian, I'm writing to report a further sighting we had tonight of the mysterious three orange lights in the sky, this time observed in the northern sky from the Woolwich area. We live in an elevated apartment with an uninterrupted view over the river toward East London and the City. This was a clear night with good visibility.

At 20:45hrs two orange lights appeared in the sky above East London, approximately over the new Olympic Park area, heading west toward the city. We were ready this time with a camcorder which has a powerful zoom facility. A third object rose up to follow the first two with a very fast rate of ascent and I was able to focus on this one using maximum zoom.

As the sun was just setting there was more light tonight than during our previous observation of 29th August. Zooming in revealed an outline shape against the dusky sky which appeared as a large rectangle or diamond shape above and connected to the orange light. Certainly unlike a conventional aircraft. The light momentarily shone brightly in our direction indicating some maneuvering around, but quickly the object followed the others westward until each light one by one disappeared just as before.

It is possible to tell which way these objects are facing because the orange light source is strongly visible at the leading end, rather like a huge headlight. A certain amount of orange light spill is visible from the side of these objects until they pass a certain point when the light source becomes obscured. Therefore it seems unlikely that these are the light from Chinese lanterns, which would, of course, be visible from all angles. At first glance, they could easily be passed off as lanterns due to the incandescent quality of the orange light, however, the associated dark form clearly seen tonight further reduces the possibility of them being lanterns.

When they passed overhead on Sunday night, the orange light source could be seen to have an irregular quality, like intense fire, with ill-defined edges and not the kind of crisp edge and beam you might associate with aircraft landing lights which are always white in any case. Tonight they were too far away to tell whether there was any noise associated and other aircraft were making noises in the area. Once again two of us witnessed this event.
