|Two spherical flashing objects over Coventry, UK
Whilst out in the back garden enjoying a warm and sunny summer evening, I glanced up at the sky towards the South West of Coventry and spotted two spherical silver coloured objects. The sky was almost cloudless, apart from a sparse, almost mist-like covering, extremely high up. At first, I thought the items were two aircraft travelling together, as is often seen, and the sun seemed to be reflecting off the planes.
Then I realised that they were, in fact, stationary. They also appeared far too high in the sky to be planes. I called my husband to have a look. He also observed them and thought that we should report it to the Airport (Birmingham flight path is above our house).
I quickly took the binoculars outside to view the objects at closer range. Through the binoculars I could see that both objects were flashing slowly from red to green to red, and so on.
The two spheres were visible in the sky for approximately half an hour and then completely vanished from view.
Although I have not previously taken a great interest in UFO's, my Mum is a subscriber to the MUFON magazine and a keen ufologist. She informed me of a sighting reported around a similar time of year by railway workers in Coventry. This spurred me on to report my sighting.
