Orange Lights Seen Over Elton Cheshire UK

Date: August 14, 2010
Time: Approx: 11:50 p.m.

Hello Brian, having read a report on your website of orange lights over Elton, Cheshire. I would like you to know of my sighting. On Saturday evening (14/08/10) at about 23:50 hrs I was standing at my backdoor having a cigarette (The legal kind) and being a clear night I was looking up at the stars when I saw what I thought was an aircraft.

Elton being in close proximity to Liverpool and Manchester airports we see a fair amount of air traffic over the village. The light was orange in colour travelling from roughly the direction of Liverpool, heading toward Chester. The light seemed too big for an aircraft and there was no evidence of flashing lights (Navigation lights).

As it disappeared behind the roofline, I walked up the side of the house to the front to track its course. As it was just coming over the roofline I noticed another three orange lights ahead of it and another behind it, all heading in the same direction and the distance between each was roughly equal. I would say that they were at the same height as a light aircraft might operate, but I've never seen five aircraft in a line unless at some kind of air show/display which do not usually take place at almost midnight (do they). One other thing struck me as odd, there was no sound at all, no engines or rotors. Hope this helps.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential. website:
