LONDON (AP) — Mysterious lights in the sky? Some British soldiers thought they might be unidentified flying objects. Then again, they might be those blazing Chinese lanterns released by the partygoers down the road — a new craze in England. Once they are lit, the small lanterns rise into the sky, much like hot air balloons.
Britain's Ministry of Defense has received numerous reports of a squadron of rotating, cube-like UFOs in June, including one from a soldier who used his mobile phone to record video footage of the suspected space visitors.
The UFO sightings earlier this month included one made by a police helicopter crew in Wales, prompting at least the Sun tabloid to announce Wednesday that an "Alien Army" was gathering above the seemingly tranquil British countryside.
