What are these.... UFO's or a top secret military project of the British?
The Times says:
And the skeptics are quick to respond too...
Engineer Paul Slight was the latest person to see them. He took this dramatic picture as he biked home to Lincoln.
Paul, 54, said: "There were 26 at first, darting between each other like they were playing a game. After that seven more arrived from the right and weaved through the crowd of lights like strange aircraft."
The lights first appeared on Merseyside on May 25. Some said they were UFOs, some thought they could be military. Two days later, on the other side of the country, they were spotted in Cambridgeshire.
Auberon and Suzi Hedgecoe, who run a guest house in Huntingdon, were spellbound when about 50 glowing mystery beams shot through the sky.
There have been reports of similar phenomena in Cornwall, Manchester and Holland. Phil Hoyle, from the UK-based UFO Investigation Unit, said: "If they dodged and darted around each other it would indicate intelligent movement."
But Malcolm Robinson, of Strange Phenomenon Investigations, had a different explanation. He said: "I am sorry to disappoint but these are Chinese lanterns.
"It's all to do with the hot weather. There has been a vast increase in barbecues and people tend to set off Chinese lanterns at these events. They are basically papier mache devices which fly up into the sky."
The way I see it, those can't be Chinese lanterns. What are they?
