Orange Lights Over South Oxhey Hertfordshire UK
Number of witnesses: 1
Shape of Objects: Orange star shaped object.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was driving home from work in Watford and I noticed a number of orange lights in the sky to the south of South Oxhey just hovering in the sky. It may have just been my perception, but they didn't appear to be moving at this stage.
They were high up in the sky, but very bright and orange and appeared to be a uniform distance apart.
When I got home and parked my car, I looked to see if I could get a better view and figure out what the lights were and at this point they were moving in a northeasterly direction towards Watford/Bushey. There were at least 9 lights moving at a uniform distance apart.
It was as if a giant chain of fairy lights were being dragged across the sky, though it was night, so I could not see if they were connected somehow. I discounted this theory as they were quite a distance apart (The first ones I saw were out of sight before the last ones appeared) so they were unlikely to be physically connected.
The lights followed at the same speed and distance across the sky. They seemed to be moving slower than a normal airplane. I thought about helicopters, but there was no noise and the sustained speed and distance between each of the lights made me doubt whether such precision formation flying could be achieved by a group of helicopters.
The final 5 lights were in a V formation like a flock of geese.
I left my phone at work so couldn't record what I saw. This all happened in a 10 minute period. I checked astronomical sights in case there was some explanation like meteors burning up in the sky, but there was nothing expected today then I came across your site as there have been similar sightings in Hertfordshire before.
I just want to know if anybody knows what the lights are?
