UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hello John, thanks for your e mail. I had a look at the site, there is a possibility they could have been lanterns, but rather than just a glow, they had kind of 'spikes' around them. When they disappeared, they seemed to wait until there was a cluster of about three.

I've looked on the net, and most of the sightings seem to be about the same time on a Saturday. Could it be the aliens night out?!! Lol.

Never having seen these lanterns I cannot be 100% sure, but it was eerie enough to frighten my 10 year old.

I have some pictures on my phone, but no software to download them. They have a different trails, some which looks a bit like an upside down v shape, one has a blob at each end, another looks like a slightly curved line, the trails are all silver, which I could not see when watching them.

Unfortunately, the pictures do not do them justice, they were a beautiful shade of orange and mesmerising.

I hope this helped.



Hello John, I just read about your migraines, hope you feel better, they are awful.

Re: my sightings, there's a link to The Sun which someone in Basingstoke saw what looks like the same light that me and my sons saw here.

Another article, if you haven't seen it, that doesn't mention Stafford, but reports over 200 sighting on Saturday night here on the slideshow, number 4 is very similar to the pictures I have on my phone, and number 1 is the same colour of our lights.

Although I have always believed in things other than in our world and on our earth plane, the more I read into this kind of stuff, the more I am convinced - there are just too many similarities!

Keep up the good work!
