Okay first off all, you can't see what the wind conditions are in the distance in this vid. Also its very possible that there are different layers of
cold and warm air.. especially in the evening, so why isn't it possible for the object to be forwarded by the wind... in fact, its very possible.
And then your next point..it isn't a lantern because they appear to be darker?
I have seen lantern design at festivals with a really non-transparent paper structure, they also have them with mirrors on them..very cool in the
Okay first off I said there appeared to be little or no wind at ground level. Yes?
1. Lack of movement of trees and telephone wires suggests no wind at ground level. 1 to me ?
2. I stated that the higher clouds in the distance were slow moving. This is because for 2.5 minutes they did not move and that they looked like
cirrusstratus as opposed altostratus because they were not moving. 2 to me?
3. Contrary to what you suggest, I deliberately made no mention of the air inbetween the ground and the high clouds for the very reason that there can
be much going on unseen and in different directions. 3 to me?
4. I made no mention of these objects Not being driven by wind. So why you would think I said it was 'impossible'? 4 to me?
5. Next you said "then your next point..." Sorry it was the earlier point. Your making this too easy. 5 to me? please take the time to read posts
before commenting on them.
6. Your next point is the most wrong of all. You claim I said 'it isn't a lantern because they are darker." Excuse me but I find it offensive when
people misrepresent what I have said or written. The quote is :
"They do not appear to be chinese lanterns because the top half of the first 2 are clearly darker than the background sky (not just a little less
Thats a massive difference! Notice the words 'do not appear', also they are darker than the evening sky, even black, and from the shape and look of
the first two objects there is no light reflected or otherwise on the top half. The light appears (there's that word again why don't you look it up)
to be shining out from the bottom half of the object. So that's got to be at least 6-0 to me.
Read what I wrote not what you think I wrote. With an attitude like yours of making false statements about other posters, you might as well put me
down for 'Foe' and 'Ignore'.
My own opinion is that the most likely explanation for these lights is that they are helicopters. However that in itself is interesting because it's
not often you see large groups of choppers in British airspace. If they are choppers in my opinion they have to be military, but that then begs the
argument why aren't they out in afghanistan where we have such a shortage of them.
