UFO sighting in Kings Langley?

First published in News by

Strange orange balls of light in the night sky have been reported over Kings Langley.

Sheri and Bob Stephens of Coniston Road were left puzzled after seeing a cluster of lights flying over their house on Thursday evening.

About 20 lights were spotted gliding towards Hemel Hempstead at 9.30pm.

Mrs Stephens described: "They were coming from the Watford area. The lights had no formation or sound and were flying as fast as an aircraft.

“There were other objects in the sky that were obviously planes with flashing lights."

The mother-of-two added: “They passed over the house in about five minutes. I would like to know if anyone else in the area saw anything or can provide answers as to what we saw.”

Nineteen-year-old Luke Batsable saw the lights as he was coming out of the Ovaltine estate.

He said: "I was with my girlfriend. We saw about 15 to 20 bright lights in the sky. They then started to disappear one by one. We don't have a clue what they were."

Don't believe me, well drive 30 minutes down the M25 till you get to Heathrow and you'll see positevely tens of lights flying in the sky at anyone time. I hear the same can be seen at Gatwick, Stansted and other similar places

Oh dear! I would have thought the WO would have stopped reporting these sightings by now, so commonplace are they becoming.

All you need to do is enter "UFOs+Chinese lanterns" into Google and you will discover umpteen reports from all over the country.

They could, of course, have been spy-in-the-sky cameras from Google Street View, aware that some daft woman at Abbots Langley has threatened to stop them going down her street!

Hello,
On Monday night (10:00 pm) 4/27/09 I was with my friends on Long Island and in the northwestern sky, we saw the same thing described in this post! unexplainable lights flickering in the sky...there was way to many to consider them all to be planes. We saw them for about 10 minutes and then they were gone as if they were flying east. I was so puzzled so I decided to do some research to see if anyone else saw this...what could it be?!
