  1. Hi
    I saw this too, whilst driving out of Woodville on the evening of 20th February. I observed about 10 orange/red lights in the sky. I thought at first that they were probably helicoptors or planes but I thought it was very odd to see so many, to be out on a Friday evening and to be out over Swadlincote. If they had been flying aircraft, I was sure that there would an accompanying white light or flashing light, a search beam of light or some noise, but there wasn’t any of these. I passed a couple more cars that had pulled up at the side of the road to get out of their cars to observe the lights. The lights were spread out more or less in a line across the sky. I noticed that the lower 3 lights were exactly in a line and were not moving. I drove home (5 mins away)to fetch my other half so he could take a look, but they had disappeared by the time we got back. I called my Dad who lives in Swadlincote who said he had seen them also and has a similar account. Glad afew other people saw them as everyone thinks I’m mad !!!!

  2. I think by your description that they were probably sky lanterns.

  3. Chinese lanterns……again.
