UFO lights near Stafford
For many people across mid-Staffordshire, Saturday 27th July 2008 was UFO night… but what is the explanation of those little objects in the sky near Stafford?
On Saturday, 27 July, 2008, residents from around Stafford reported seeing a UFO in the night sky.
Matthew Parton, who supplied the pictures of the little strange orange lights you see on this page said: "although the quality is not brilliant, if you look at the majority of the pictures you can see 5 orange lights (ignore the one with lots of lights as we were viewing next to a block of flats). However the lights appear to the left of the flats."
Matthew also sent in the following images that were recorded on his video camera...
The best explanation?
But he was just one of the many people who phoned the local BBC station to report what they had seen.
Although Matthew reports five lights, others say they saw up to eighteen lights, some of which moved, then stood stock still, some of which appeared to be in formation, some random. Others reported seeing lights, though fewer in number, on Sunday too.
So what could they be? Below, you'll find some of your reports and explanations, though the one that seems to have most support is that of the Chinese lantern style balloons – these balloons are released after parties and can float quite high in the sky.
What do you think? See what everyone else had to say...
