Witness Statement: On returning home walking up the drive I became aware of three very bright orange balls moving slowly across the sky.

  1. Hi- Have you seen a glow lantern before? Until you see one “in the flesh” it can be quite easy to mistake one for something else, even if you have seen footage online.

  2. Unless you have reason to feel otherwise, these are almost certainly what is known as “glow lanterns” or “Chinese Lanterns.”

  3. Hello Julia,
    According to two videos in the ‘NOT Chinese Lanterns’ section of UK-UFO website, and many reports at UK-UFO, you may have seen a real McCoy ‘UFO’, an anomalous aerial vehicle.
    If you view the videos in the ‘Chinese Lanterns’ and ‘Not Chinese Lanterns’ sections, you may get a better idea of what you witnessed. On the other hand, you may need to rely on your intuition and feeling, because there are a lot of similarities between the spheres real McCoy ‘UFOs’ appear to be able to release in large quantities, and Chinese Lanterns.
    Either way – you saw something nice.
    It seems, maybe, the number ‘3’ is significant to ET and real ‘UFOs’, and the time of around 9pm also seems to crop up in regard to what may be the activity of anomalous aerial vehicles (ET?).
    All the best, Michael
