|Tags||Sighting UFO Lights|
|Date||Wednesday, 5th of August 1987|
12.25 AM. Clear sky.
Two police officers, and Inspector and a PC were standing on a mountain road overlooking a valley with a clear view into the night sky. In the southern sky two bright orange lights slightly larger than aircraft lights were seen moving in close proximity to each other. Both objects were spherical in shape with no apparent angle of elevation, but were approximately three miles away from the observer.
They lights were moving at steady moderate speed, one behind the other towards the south-west. After travelling a short distance the front light shot off at speed upwards into the sky in a north westerly direction and out of sight. Simultaneously the rear light shot off at speed upwards into the sky in the reverse direction towards the south-east and out of sight.
A mile away from the two officers, and unknown to either party, the UFOs were also observed by another two police officers, a PC and a WPC.
Duration of sighting was 2-3 minutes.
