Seems there was a lot of action in Northeast England on the 18th. Thought you folks might want to check it out. Some have said flares, but I dont know, seems to be to many lights just blinking on and off, or coming and going. The guys talking in the background seem pretty excited too.
Anyhow Im not the professional debunker around here, just something I found that was pretty new and thought I'd throw it out here.

Being from the north east i wish i'd of seen this, think its a little further north than me though going by the accents. They have the size to be lanterns, but appear to be dropping from the sky rather than climbing. I'd rule out flares too, this one has me baffled.

It looks real and looks similiar to the Washington DC sighting from the 1950's. Hm.

Sweet video, thanks for posting. Certainly not lanters, as lanterns don't spontaniously combust mid air
Flares? Could be I suppose, but then you'd have thought that a plane would be audiable, or at least those filming it would have been able to hear one, and employ common sense to see that it was an earthly occurence.

Very interesting video, i do hope nobody actually comes here with the old lame excuses. swamp gas, lanterns etc. However I would love for someone to prove, with evidence, that it is terrestrial, then I’d be happy with that.

I’m intrigued by the way they move and act, different speeds, different rates of 'flashing' appearing from out of the blue etc. really got me thinking.

Great Vid, S&F.

I can see where your coming from, but im not familiar with a type of flare that doesnt fall back to Earth with gravity after being shot into the sky, as whats happening in your video, however in the OP vid, you can blatently see they are moving more or less horizontally across the sky and covering quite a distance.

Flares i think not.

Looks very simular to the Arizona lights. Defenitly not flares, maybe flares from a UFO?

I agree with you, but you know it is going to happen, they will come, it will be swamp gas and that is how it will gooo... (sigh)

Did you guys notice towards the end they looked liked they were being hm spit out. Seemed like there were tiny little trails right before they became the orb type lights. Also some of them seemed to split into two as well.

Do flares burn out then relight later?

Yeah, it's definitely not lanterns. It's just the way they are descending as if they are being dropped from a plane.. and that they light up for about 30-35 seconds every time ..


edit: spelling

Just watched this and must admit that it's one of those that leaves you wondering for sure. I'm thinking these aren't lanterns either (wrong colour for a start) the scale seems too big for the distance.. looks almost like plasma balls or something. Can't comment on flares as I've never seen one go up so at a loss with that theory..

Good catch guys!

Ah wow, I'm from the northeast and I WISH I had've seen this!

It's pretty impressive, and although it could be flares and all those other boring excuses which were thrown at my sighting, I wouldn't think so watching it.
Plus, I've seen lanterns... And I don't think it's them!

Interesting stuff! I'm gonna have to start keeping an eye out.
Nothing UFO-interesting usually happens up here!

Please correct me if I am wrong, but when they call these type of lights flares, dont they usually mean the kind that drop and not go up?

I agree the burn time all seems about the same, but like the guy mentioned in his comments, why would they be dropping flares there, much less so many of them?Also, wouldn't they give off more surrounding light? With that many clustered, seems like there would have been more light then usual.

It's flares. They don't rise. They all fall slowly (under a parachute) at the same rate and drift with the wind in the same direction. They burn out at about the same altitude.


The North East of England makes a vital contribution to UK Defence. It is home to some of the British Army’s most famous regiments and a number of important RAF bases

I know it's a long way off in the distance but if it were lanterns or flares wouldn't they be moving more swiftly with the wind? Sure sounds like it was a blowin' that night.

Got me stumped! yes may be flares but no plane noise
though this could be due to the wind and not being able to
hear the plane.
still unidentified in my book.

the first parts of the video look like the same formation as the mexico military sighting
also would they drop flares over a built up area?

Are flares known for splitting into two as well as burning out and relighting? Watching the Whole video there seems to be a lot of that as well as some stay pretty stationary as well

Good video, OP. At first I was hesitant to say "flares," because of the nonlinear pattern of the lights, but after closer inspection and research, here are my two theories:

1) Yes, I'll say it... flares. Flares that are dropped during a military exercise have small parachutes, so they don't fall straight down. Additionally it sounds like there is a lot of wind during this video, which could explain why the flares are moving almost horizontally. Now, flares are dropped one after another in a line, and they generally light up one after the other too, and the lights in this video are NOT in a single consistent line like that. However, they ARE in TWO lines, suggesting the location of two helicopters or slow-moving planes dropping these flares: A lower one in the middle, and a slightly higher one to the left. If you watch closely you will see that all the lights come from these two points, before slowly moving downward and to the right.

2) A HAHO jump exercise. This is another form of military exercise, which you can learn about here. Basically it involves several soldiers jumping out of a plane or helicopter, one after another, opening their parachutes soon after the jump, and navigating their way over a horizontal distance to a point on the ground. While these lights seem to be lower in altitude than a standard HAHO jump, I can't say for certain that this is true; additionally, it's possible the military decided to try a lower-altitude HAHO to take advantage of the strong and steady wind currents. Finally, because this would be a practice, the soldiers would probably carry flares with them during a night-time jump to be able to see each other, and for safety purposes.

It's a good video, but I suspect it has one of these two terrestrial explanations.
