A Pair Of Red/Orange Colored Lights Over New Addington Croydon Surrey UK

Date:  Mid July 1967
Time:  Approx: 8:50 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 2
Shape of Objects: Appeared spherical.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was just saying goodbye to some friends from upstairs window in my girlfriends parents house when as we were turning away to leave the room, a reddish/orange pair of lights in the distance in the dark, caught my eye as they appeared to move quite fast.
We kept looking in the direction they were near, which from New Addington was just to the right of the Crystal Palace Radio Mast, but in actual distance was more than likely more above the Bromley area.
While keeping our eyes fixed in that direction, the lights were moving in a zigzag and up and down motion for what was approximately 2-3 minutes.
The lights were obviously not an aeroplane because of the movement, and also not a helicopter as the speed that they were moving at would have been impossible for a helicopter to negotiate at such speed which would be best described as zipping from point to point.
I/we, never reported it at the time as we were only aged 14/15. But have never forgotten it, and my recollection of it has always been the same.
