Location of Sighting: Exeter (Springfield Rd, St James)
Date of Sighting: 18th July 2009
Time: 22:35 Hrs

Witness Statement: Saturday 18th July 2009 at 22.35 Hrs a low flying orange light approached my house from the west, as it neared, following behind were three more flying in a equilateral triangle formation, I watched these fly overhead (top of Springfield Rd, St James), and then noticed four more following, these were in a close but irregular formation.

These having flew overhead, I proceeded to the shop to put money in my phone, I noticed that one had remained on the outskirts of Exeter to the north-east, upon reaching St James bridge, I stopped a girl and pointed this out to her and told her about the ones that flew over my house, a couple of minutes later another was seen approaching from the west, this stopped (probably around St David's area) and remained there as the other remained in the east, I then went to the shop and both had gone upon my return.

This incident then reminded me of about three wks ago, when I was crossing the bridge on the way home (around dusk), I noticed a red light in the west, thinking it was Mars I searched for Venus (as I do), only then did I realise that it was completely overcast and no stars were visible, I watched this orange light as I walked, I lost sight of it as I passed by some houses and it had gone when the sky came back into view.

Well that's about it.
