Steve McDonnell was on his way home to Seascale from Sellafield when he saw two orange objects flying less than 100 metres from his home.

Rushing to his house, he photographed the lights which he described as “effervesce with no obvious solid edges.’’

He said: “At their lowest point of travel the closest object had a diameter of about one centimetre to the naked eye but its actual size was impossible to determine due to lack of cloud cover to give an accurate distance reference point.

“The two objects stayed in close proximity to each other as they flew but at varying distances and appeared to be travel at varying speeds until they accelerated into the distance.”

Steve said there was no sound coming from the lights, but he dismissed the idea that they were Chinese lanterns.

“As I made the sighting less than 100m from my home I managed to get back and my wife captured the pictures,’’ he said.

“I have no idea what the objects might have been. I also witnessed a similar sighting about 12 months ago, along with my wife but the lights on that occasion were further south in the sky.”

Steve had contacted Pat Regan, founder of North West UFO Research. Pat asks if anyone else saw the lights, at around 10.40pm on Sunday, June 14 to call 01704 571920.
