|Saw 6 UFOs in 3 sightings and got 3 pictures of the objects.
I had to look after my Uncles house in a village just outside of the town I live in. Me and my brothers were in my Uncles paddock when we had our first sighting. One evening we saw 2 white round objects moving across the sky. The sky was clear with no clouds and there was no wind. One object was bigger than the other. The objects were white like a bolt of lightning, that kind of light. These objects were silent and we watched them move across the sky until we couldn't see them anymore. When we first saw them the small object was behind the bigger object but it was moving a bit faster so it over took the big object. The objects moved at a steady speed, not fast or slow but fast enough to travel across the sky in a few minutes. The big object was about the size of a full moon and the smaller one about 1/5th of that size. The objects were quite far away, at least thousands of feet and didn't appear very high in the sky. We didn't know what these objects were.
After this sighting we borrowed my dads camera just incase we saw anything else while we were looking after my uncles house. On the last night at my uncles we were outside, it was a clear night with no wind and my brothers were messing about taking pictures and getting the typical Orbs in them which are mostly caused by moisture and dust, later that night there was an intense fog and we think the moisture in the air caused the Orbs in the photos we got. After being outside for a while we saw something coming towards us flashing a bright white light. The object was round, silent and moving slowly and we didn't know what it was so we got a picture of it as it was overhead. As we got the picture of it we noticed another one coming which was identical to the first. As this second object was overhead we noticed a smaller white object travelling with it that wasn't flashing and we took a picture. The way the bigger objects would flash was that the entire object would flash a white light, the light would decrease and go out, then the light would increase and flash and keep doing this in a regular period of time. It was only after we saw these objects that we realized how strange they were. We had never seen anything like them, couldn't think of anything they could be either. They were low in the sky and moved in a straight line. Its likely that these objects were the same we saw the previous night but this time the bigger objects were flashing and there was 1 more of them.
Then on the last day I was at my uncles house my brothers had gone home and I was waiting for my uncle to come back. I was outside smoking a cigarette, I had the camera with me because of the sighting the night before. I happened to look up and saw something moving towards the house. The object was silent, moving quite fast, wasn't flashing and looked quite dim. I didn't know what this object was so I took a picture which came out bad as I was holding the cigarette. I took another picture and the object was in focus. The object moved over my uncles house out of sight. I have no idea what this object was, it was different to the other objects we had seen and I wouldn't have noticed it if I didn't look up by chance as the object was silent and wasn't very bright.
I have been in touch with Timothy Good and he didn't know what the objects are and recommended I get in touch with Nick Pope. I got in touch with Nick who also didn't know what the objects were and said that he wasn't in a position where he could find this out but that I should send the pictures and my UFO sighting report to the Ministry of Defence. I got a letter from the MOD saying they don't investigate all UFO reports, they only see if there was any evidence of a threat, they remain open minded about UFOs and that they would file away my report and pictures.
I have sent the pictures to Ball lightning experts from this list
The people who responded to me said the objects aren't Ball lightning because there were no storms that night and the sighting lasted too long. I have put the pictures onto a few UFO forums hoping someone has seen the same objects and would be able to identify them but so far no one has been able to.
