a POSSIBLE major ufo sighting in the Swindon area of wiltshire, UK

In regards to an email you recieved last night regarding a possible major ufo sighting, we now have pictures to send and will use the link provided to email them to you electronically.

Incase you thought this was a hoax, I will explain the occurence of which happened within the estimated time period we described.

The first object we saw travelled from west to east, or south-west to east, it was bright orange to red in colour, travelling at a fairly low speed, it then stopped altitude estimate: 1 1/2 miles, before gradually fading and dissapearing over a time spand of approx 2 minutes. This was then followed on a regular interval on the same track and stopping at exactly the same position in the skyline. Then approx an hour after this started, we then sighted four of the same objects grouped together and converging in the same area before dissapearing.

We took the photo(s) on a digital camera - we still have the original images on that camera, and the images I will email to you remain unedited. After we downloaded them onto hard drive, we zoomed in to discover that they appear to be a bank of lights surrounded in an orange haze - also some were diamond formation. We also have video footage captured on camcorder (but sadly the viewing quality is not brilliant due to night-time filming - keeps going out of focus).

Being bonfire night we appreciate and are open to possible explanations or sceptism, but we certainly have not seen anything like this before - and the images clearly show that the object was not a firework.

According to a relative - their neighbours also sighted this event.

Hope you find this interesting and can work out a feasible explanation.

Kind Regards Pete
