Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Glowing orange and like a saucer or sausage.
Size of Object(s)
It was dark, if I stretch my arm out in front of me, my fingers are 3-4cm apart for its relative size. I can't tell the actual size, bigger than an aeroplane - maybe twice the length and height.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
I think they were about 2 miles away and about half a mile altitude.
Description of Area / Surroundings
They were flying over countryside towards the town. The direction which they came from was Woldingham to the north I think. There is a disused nuclear war bunker there and some huge aerials that transmit TV signal.
Full Description & Details
I was leaving a pub (sober I might add) one night - The Crown Pub in Old Oxted, Surrey at about 11pm. As I went out of the door there were about 10 people outside looking up at the sky. I looked up and saw 6-10 (can't remember the exact number now as it was a few years ago), disc/saucer shaped objects in the sky and they were glowing orange. They were flying together and then they hovered, it was incredible. They were lower than a plane flies. They came a bit closer and after about 15 seconds, they whooshed off really fast towards the east and upwards - and were gone. I could not believe my eyes - everyone was astonished and saying - did you see that?!
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Absolutely no way. The way they moved towards us and hovered and then flew off so quickly was unlike anything natural or man made.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before I would have laughed if someone had said they had seen a UFO - I would have thought they were mad. Afterwards, I know what I saw it was definitely a UFO. Plus there were a whole group of people with me standing open mouthed and astonished!
