FAMILIES last night claimed they watched in awe as a dozen glowing orange objects buzzed Basingstoke. In the latest UFO riddle to grip Britain, witnesses say the “alien” fleet hovered above the Hampshire town for half an hour – changing formation before their eyes. Dad-of-two David Osborne, 47 – who captured the unearthly phenomenon on video – said yesterday: “My adrenaline was pumping and I was trembling all over.

If its orange and comes in dozens and does formations, then no points for guessing, these are ....

Someone hasn't released Chinese lanterns into the night sky to celebrate a wedding then ???

If they are lanterns why are they never caught being set off.Why are they never seen when they come down.

The MOD report recenty says they are "Bouyant Entities" - Balls on natural plasma.

If they are these balls of plasma as the MOD say why are they proliferating ?

What would happen if you were to come into contact with a 10 foot sphere of "natural" plasma ?

What would happen if our atmostphere starting filling with hundreds then thousands then millions of these things.

Is the earth starting to pass into an area of "unknown" space weather.

These are the questions that really need to be answered.

Shouting lanterns everytime there is a report just shows that you dont believe in ET and think that is what the other explanation is but it also shows that you dont know what your talking about when your prepared to "know" what caused the sighting without any proof what so ever.

Lets settle the dispute about these f'in lanterns and get em off ebay.They break all the CAA rules anyway.

Chinese lanterns? Not at all.
Looked more like swamp gas to me

In all seriousness though, somethings going on. It seems almost every day the media are reporting Unidentified Flying Objects over Britain.

Maybe its them bloody Germans again....

Yep! Definitely a fleet of unidentified flying objects.
You really can't say they are anything else but that.

I would not of posted the thread if I did not think there was something to it - I was being cynical when I mentioned the lanterns as I was never completely convinced about the lantern theory anyway

Link to my response on the Australian UFO recently reported - I always try and keep an open mind

Could the fact that the Farnborough Airshow is about to start have anything to do with the recent rash of sightings? I've seen many different aircraft in the vicinity recently, all in preperation for the show.

Yes I agree with you I was reading an article in Feb that there had been a huge surge in UFO sightings reported to the UK Ministry of Defense last year - clusters of up to 100 mysterious objects, bright white lights and strange, triangular shaped objects . The article stated the ministry had opened up its own "X-Files" for 2007.

David, an amateur astronomer, yelled to his daughters to grab his camera after he phoned nearby RAF Odiham and was told officials could not comment “for security reasons”.

A kind of ambiguous response really that can lead to all kinds of conjecture.

Aa always I would like to see the original image or images something of higher quality at least.

Chinese lanterns it could well be, they are the subject of much frustration at the moment and I wold like to see them taken off the shelves.

There is a similiar problem with solar ballons or bin bag ballons they just muddy the waters when trying to authenticate a sighting.

I do wonder though if The Sun is just jumping on the bandwagon as a result of increased sales or that there is an increased awareness amongst it's readers since the first stories were printed.
If the later is true I am a little dissapointed at a amateur astronomer being a reader of The Sun though.

with all the sightings lately,its hard to believe that we still dont have proof.....but then again pictures or video here will always be someone screaming fake,so what will it take,nothing short of our trustworthy(snicker) government to tell us.....sad

This is the video of the basingstoke lights, june 2008.
I just found it on u tube and know nothing about it's authenticity or who posted it.

Thanks blupblup have a star for your diligence.

I would not like to say how you could prove it one way or another but they do look like fire lanterns to me, other people are free to make their own minds though.

I saw the same lights in the sky over Farnham in Surrey, although there was only four of them. They looked like bright orange stars travelling from west to east direction, two were in close proximity to each other and were heading on a collision course, both took avoiding action to avert a possible collision. They were flying at what seemed a very high altitude, and at a fair speed, the sun had only set approx three quarters of an hour before and i think it may have been the sun shining on their reflective surfaces causing them to glow orange, they disappeared when directly overhead, no shape could be seen at all.
They were definately not aircraft (no flashing lights) paper lanterns (too fast) or satellites (too bright).
What do you think? Strange eh!

The more often these reports come up, the more real my dreams seem.

Let's all hope for floating balls of natural plasma, shall we?

Very reminiscent of the Phoenix lights. I believe whatever is behind the Phoenix lights is responsible for this incident as well as many others of the same nature.

I'm from Singapore and back in 2002, I was undergoing my National Service, it's like the draft in the US. Anyways, while I was posted to the 108th intake of police force and undergoing my training at the academy, we had a similar incident like the Phoenix lights and the topic of this title happen to us one night. Forgive me for not remembering the exact date but it was definitely in the last quarter of that year.

This was a mass sighting. People from different "companies" were standing outside of their living quarters/barracks after lights off staring at the sky as half a dozen orange balls started to appear one by one in the exact formation as the Phoenix lights. Even our PT instructors who were on their nightly rounds couldn't fault us for being outside of our barracks that night(which is a punishable offence). We watched these orbs for about 10-15mins before they started to disappear one by one.

Now this was before camera phones were widely available here and according to regulations, we were not allowed to bring cellphones into the academy. Didn't stop people from smuggling them in though. I'm probably gonna get flack for this but, my squadmate had a camera phone at the time and I got him to take pics of the orbs. He managed to catch one of the orange orbs clearly on his camera and he emailed it to me but I think I deleted the email by mistake. I still beat myself over that to this day.

You may be wondering why this wasn't reported anywhere or why our local media didn't pick up on this. Singaporeans are a very apathetic bunch. What the NWO hopes to achieve with the rest of the world has already been put into effect here for a long time. But that's another topic for another forum.

Sorry for the rant. Just wanted to share this with everyone here.

well thank's d2 for the recount. I go with you on these being ufo orbs. The UK has become something of a stomping ground for them recently. What you were saying about the formation, yes I know where you're coming from. Often when viewed they are in a triangle formation followed by a sort of line. I see these things here in Britain, some may be lanterns, not those I've seen. They spin on their axis and pulsate from within, the white and orang/amber usually travel in pairs, while the reds are singular and smaller and have a laser beam attached. They are able to communicate, if you flash your torch at them three times then they often flash back the same. They are just like Spielberg acted out in Close Encounters. Even last night there were lights outside my window, two buzzing this way and buzzing that, it's not normal and tonight I brought my movie camera over and I'm gonna film them.

I'm sure these are just lanterns.
Just got back from the Glastonbury festival and they were being released in dozens on a nightly basis.
As the crow flys, Basingstoke is only 50 or so miles from the site at Pilton and with a steady breeze that night, would have easily drifted.
Shortly after being released some of the crowd were shining laser pointers onto them making them look weirder.
I should have taken some footage really. Duh

I have seen similar to these...more the ones to the left...the triangular formation, although not sure what to think.

they are certainly ufos....because they cannot be definitely identified, but as for being extraterrestrial, i'm not convinced of that.

There are many aerial phenomenon that can't be explained at the moment, but with the advancement of technology and specifically visual tech. i don't think it will be long before we all have 50 mega pixel cameras in our phones and 300x optical zooms and alike(maybe an exaggeration).....won't be long guys till we can really SEE this stuff.

I'm still curious about these light phenomenon and hope we can shed a little more light on it.

I've heard lanterns from glastonbury festival,chinese lanterns from a wedding and now balloons with candles in from a party in the forest.
Seems too many want to discredit this instantly..... i just wonder why?
