Update from this thread:
Well low and behold the sky is super clear(unusual) for Seoul, Korea. Few clouds, and the stars came out. I was walking in a famous shopping district
Myeongdong (명동역), heading towards the direction of the Namsan Tower (남산타워) and my friend mentioned "what are those weird lights in the
sky?" About 10 of them hovered across our view.
Ironically, I'm the one known for interest in UFOs and I brushed my friend off like yeah right, just helicopters or something. Well, it turns out they
were silent, hovering, and glowing orange.
The unfortunate thing is that upon having a bit of a closer examination, I could see none other than flames waxing and waning on the lower portion,
and they felt way too close , like just above the buildings. This does NOT debunk the original thread, it does however prove something I did not
believe: that Koreans use Chinese lanterns. In China we have some Buddhist temples do it, so I imagine in Korea there must be a holiday?
I posted this report simply because in order to further prove a real UFO, we must identify what they are not. Hope this helps.
