Hey October,Great post.
Been away from the net/ATS a while and just got back into the swing of things-
I was chuffed to find find this thread,as I live about 12 miles from Wrexham where the sighting took place.
Pretty cool to have something so local to me mentioned on ATS
Anyway,I didn`t see anything myself but I did keep a couple of newspaper articles on the incident(S).
One from the Flintshire Evening Leader of Friday,July,27th2007 was quite interesting,for a couple of reasons:
It mentions witnesses from 4 locations:Acton,Borras,Gwersyllt and Caergwrle.
Now Acton and Borras are quite close to each other,maybe a mile or so.But Gwersyllt is a few miles out of Wrexham,and Caergwrle is a good 5-6 miles
out,and behind a large-ish hill or two-for people to have seen the UFO there too detracts from the "lantern" theory in my opinion,as it was windy
that night as usual and those lanterns just blow out in light winds,or blow upside down in stronger winds(and go out).
Also a resident of Borras stated in the article that he remembered a series of UFO sightings near Borras airfield,20 years ago.Numerous green lights
were spotted by many witnesses he said.
Also there was a sighting in the Acton Borras area a year or so back,with a video of something fling over a bypass.I`ll have to have a look for more
on that,I don`t recall it myself.
Not sure whats happening in the skies at the moment-the UK is in a UFO flap at the moment it seems.
