Reported: 7/27/2008 6:40:52 AM 06:40
Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Bristol (UK/England),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 minutes
2 red spheres sighted, in the Western sky, moving slowly, then gradually faded out, one after the other as if leaving orbit .

My son and I were observing the sky to the West of Bristol,at around 23:00, when 2 red spheres appeared. Viewed at an approximate angle of 30 degrees the objects were approximately 15 inches apart, to our vision. It would place them, I believe, somewhere over Wales, possibly the Brecon Beacons area. They moved slowly and gradually got fainter until they faded away as if leaving orbit or the influence of the Suns reflectivity. The whole sighting time was about 15 minutes.As they disappeared, a faint star (as it appeared to be) flashed brightly, about 3 times, approximately 3 to 4 minutes apart as if it was a distant sun flaring. Following this a bright white light travelled West to East, appearing to have a trail, to the naked eye, passing under the Plough, the approximate sighting time of this was 2 seconds. Shortly afterwards we observed 2 meteor/space junk burn outs in the Western sky (shooting stars). Nothing further was seen after 23:30. I have experienced a similar sighting about 12 months ago.
