1 December 2014, evening 5:30PM IST to 5:45PM IST
Pune, Maharashtra, India

Summary:  Two lights spotted over the north of Pune in evening when sky is still bright

Date Posted: 12/1/2014 7:37:57 AM

Sighting Time: 5:30PM
Day/Night: Dusk/Evening
Duration: 15-20 minutes

No. of Witnesses: 3-4

Size of Object(s): difficult to say, because they were bright lights. Apparently smaller than a commercial jet airliner like A320
Distance to Object(s): distance 7-8km , altitude 500m to 1km

Appearance / Description of Object(s)
bright lights, similar to aircraft landing lights, difficult to identify shape but could be spherical

Description of Area / Surroundings
lights spotted at the western edge of two prominent hills of Dighi, near the Pune airport.

Full Description & Details
Two (or possibly more than two) flashing lights observed near Dighi, Pune on 1 December 2014 between 5:30 PM and 5:45PM

The two lights appear like bright incandescent lights , yellow colour like aircraft undercarriage lights, but there were 2 lights and the angle was 90 degrees to the regular runway approach path to Pune airport.

I am an aviation enthusiast, so I know they could not be aircraft. The commerical flights approach the airport in a direction perpendicular to what the lights would be, if they were aircraft and the Pune airport does not have such frequent landings. Helicopters do not hover for so long, and they could not have been fighter afterburners either since I was close enough to hear fighters and a fighter with afterburners lit would move rapidly. Neither did they show any trace of rising from the ground to be fireworks, or balloons.

The two lights moved slowly, vertically separated by probably 500 meters, the upper light slowly descends toward the lower light, sometime they merge and sometimes the lower light switches off and only the upper light shows where the lower light was, and a second light appears where the upper light was, sort of like a repeating pattern.

Both lights disappear for a few minutes, then re-appear one by one, and much of the time you can see two light simultaneously, not moving horizontally but only vertically. At one point the lights did seem to change shape into vertical bars but mostly the shape is not easy to distinguish, they seem like spherical lights. And during the sequence, the upper light did move to the left of the lower light while still above, most of the time the vertical separation was slightly offset with the upper light a bit to the right.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
too bright to be stars or planets too slow moving to be aircraft , disappearing intermittently and re-appearing after few minutes any aircraft would be flying in approx east-west direction to land at Pune airport, these lights could only appear on aircraft if the aircraft uses a north-south landing approach, which is completely out of the landing line for either of the two runways.

Personal Background
working software engineer, about 4 fellow witnesses are software engineers too. sighting seen from the terrace of my office building

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have read of them before, seen TV documentaries but not actively pursuing any UFO studies or research, cannot say I am a believer of extra-terrestrial life without undeniable evidence.

Other Comments
I have read of similar lights engaging in a kind of aerial dance or defined pattern before, usually they involve 4-5 or more lights. The lights I witnessed, along with a few colleagues, were not more than two at any given time, it was always 1 or 2 lights visible, though there could be more than two UFOs. They didn't appear to land, the light would go off before it hits the top of the hill sighted over (the object itself was not visible, or too small to be visible, we could only see the lights )
