Many of the current "UFO" sightings in the UK, are no more than Chinese lanterns it was revealed today on Glastonbury Radio.
After studying many pictures of "glowing orange balls of light" they appeared to be celebratory lanterns let off at functions such as weddings
This is not to say ALL sightings can be so easily dismissed, but generally speaking if you see a slow moving, silent orange ball of light it could
well be a Chinese lantern, and to avoid giving the sceptics even more amunition I would suggest ruling out all logical alternatives before yelling
First of all Ross before they claim something that results in an ordinary speculation
they must conduct a real research, a legitimate investigation on this subject in order
to have proof to sustain their arguments other than just statements and I will
tell you what they must do in this case.
They must search any store in the city that sells the chinese lanterns, writing the
names and address of the stores found, talking to the owners and asking how much
of these chinese lanterns have been sold in the past months and if they remember
who bought them, young people, family people, kids etc.
Visit regularely these stores that sell chinese lanterns specially after a sighting of
this kind is reported and check if they sold lanterns recently, this is important.
Check how expensive thew chinese lanterns are and if they sell large quantities
to any person lately. Check if posible if they keep record of the buyers to locate
Buy a large amount of these chinese lanterns and make a recreation, film the
experiment and compare it to the alleged ufo fleet videos suspected to be
chinese lanterns. Once completed the experiment post here the results of your
investigation providing names, locations and necesary information to sustain
your proposal. You see their theory is vague and inconclusive, they said “after
studying many pictures - they appeared to be” This is a matter of criteria, not
a fact therefore is considered just a personal opinion but not substantiated by
any proof other than their logic wich is not conclusive in the research field.
To conduct a good research is not easy, it's required to invest time and effort to
get tangible evidences that will support the proposals.
