11-10-2009: Unidentified Flying Objects Sighting Over Chatham, Kent, UK

Witness statement:

Hello, m
y name is X, (removed for security) and I live in Chatham, Kent. I would like to pass on this experience I had on Saturday 11th October 2009 at approx.11pm.
As I reached the window in my bedroom to close the curtains I saw a sight that I cannot explain. In the sky at some height were 3 bright orange "orbs" that were lined upwards, fairly close together , with another 3 starting to form a "V" formation such as birds do and there was another smaller "orb" to the left. Coming from the right, at spaced intervals, were about another ten which went [at a steady speed] upwards at an angle to "join" the others on the lower part of the "V" formation and over a matter of approx. 20minutes they all disappeared into the upper atmosphere.
There was also no sound. I do not have a mobile phone with a camera and, as I did not know how long what I was looking at would last, I ran to get a telephone and rang my son to relate to him what I was seeing as it was happening.
As my son and I are not believers in aliens we have looked on the internet for any similar reports and found your website, hence this email.

Apparently there are a lot of sightings similar to mine, that have been reported over the years , even two this weekend , one in UK and one the USA.
These sightings seem to be attributed mostly to Chinese Lanterns. Having looked at these on the internet this certainly seems a fair comment but I also agree with other people who have seen the "orbs" that, [1] would lanterns create a "v" formation and "fly" in such an organised way?] and [2] although the lanterns are quite big, would we be able to see them so clearly when they appear to be at a height that a helicopter would fly?].
I will be interested on your thoughts/comments regarding the above,
