Looks like a little passing cloud to me. Coincidentally semi-elliptical in shape.
btw, is the Stratford area known for non-debunked crop circle activity?
The lights may be associated with crop circle lights ...

As I stated above, the show happened on the 14/15th July.
This event happened on the 21st I do believe.
There were not 500 aircraft at RIAT, and I know, because I was there.
This is interesting actually. Anyone else seen the load of crop circles that have appeared recently too?
July 7th, Wiltshire;
At 3:08 AM, early on Saturday, July 7, 2007, three eyewitnesses saw a bright flash of light that produced an electromagnetic disturbance on videotape. When they went to investigate the area the flash was seen in, they found this. (Even if not spooky, it's beautiful!)
July 10th, Wiltshire;
A helicopter is spotted above the crop circle posted above.
"There was a terrible smell from the helicopter. I can describe it as being a sulfurous smell – very powerful! It made my eyes burn. I noticed half a dozen other people as well – they were quite severely affected. I saw one man throwing up into the crop."
July 16th, Oxfordshire;
Crop circle discovered
July 19th, Wiltshire;
July 19th, Wiltshire (5 miles from above photo);
July 24th, Straford Upon Avon;
4 lights spotted in the sky were then joined by another light which moved towards them before stopping forming a perfect 'Y' formation. They then disappeared over the horizon.

If anything i'd say the crop circles discredit the rest of it! So many are eventually exposed as hoaxes that even the ones that arent make me very doubtful (also i thinkthe whole thing of aliens comming all this way just squash some corn is pretty unlikely).
I definatley dont think theyre lanterns though, they look so high up, and the story about the rugby club losing some is not belivable at all!

paul76 welcome to ATS
It would be good to get some actual testimonies, footage of the end of the sighting and everything everyone needs to prove what they want to prove.
let's not lose track of what this is, a debate, so let's keep it clean and above the belt. there's no need for lectures about the rules because we're all adults (i wont say mature for fear of losing my inner child).
paul76..... what exactly are you planning to do on your visit. you say;
"And theres quite a bit of excitement right now in sleepy Stratford...........Stratford is a very well to do place.......So the witness statements who will be seeing, will be coming from good reliable professionals...I'm going to see my brother Saturday..And see if i can find more about the weather conditions and I'm also going to the pub to question the landlord and staff to try to get some more information on the movement of the objects in question....And see what happened to them."
things to remember mate
1. your phone has a dictaphone (sp)
2. blue tooth any video or images so clear up your phone or buy a memory stick.
3. tell people who actually saw this to log on to ATS, create a profile and give an online account of what they saw or post their pics / vids.
if this is a topic of discussion people will have pics, video with sound and decent recollections of the night. careful with chinese rumours though. no abduction or probe stories.
it would be good to see what turns up here on it's own (via youtube) or what you can get your hands on while you're there.

observe their random movements/bobbing with the wind currents as they rise and CHANGE directions which in no way resembles the UK lights video.
Look at this! The lanterns are travelling UP together but look at their random bobbing movements, my goodness looks nothing like the UK lights.
And none of these excellent examples 'STOP' in mid air and hold formation.
And this is what you skeptics are claiming are the UK lights? WHAT A JOKE.
Time to put it to bed....
For every Video you put up showing wind blowing them Ill put up two where they go up nice and slowly
How many of the have you actually seen in reallife, or even let go of?
Ive probably sent up over 500 of the things in my time in the far east.
Some do get blown around but most are let off on relatively windless nights and they drift up into the sky nice and slowly, depending on their size and how big the heat source is.
