Two Large Crimson Coloured Lights Over Redland Bristol UK

Date: February 26, 2011
Time: 11:15 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of Objects: 3
Shape of Objects: Round lights.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was walking along Canowie Road in Redland, Bristol, I was looking at the stars as I walked home from work, as I usually do on clear nights. I noticed two large, crimson-coloured lights which seemed to be at first stationary, in the direction of Bristol Filton Airport. At first I assumed they were helicopters etc, but I soon noticed that there were no blinking lights.

As I looked on, still walking along Canowie road, I realized that they were moving slowly in an entirely horizontal trajectory apart from each other, again with no additional lights such as search lights or anti-collision lights etc. I was looking at them more intently now, as I found the size of the objects, their red colour, and total lack of noise (I had heard far-off helicopters on the same walk that same evening) to be intriguing.

As I walked along to the end of the road, a hedge obscured my line of sight for about 8-10 seconds, and when I had regained a clear line of sight, which left me with a lot of open sky to scan, they had disappeared. Again, this was a very clear night sky, and I had seen these objects for about a full minute before they vanished, and they were definitely not planes, helicopters or 'Chinese lanterns'. Go figure.
