Utah lights were just Helium Balloons and Flares, not UFOs or Secret Military Aircraft clames local artist Andrew Smith.

Even I was suckered in on this one, even after Andrew contact us with another link to a video of more lights!

Lehi, Utah (ABC 4 News). A Lehi man is claiming responsibility for a flying saucer, his flying saucer of sorts. “It was just for fun, it wasn’t meant to be a hoax, and it just turned into one” Artist Andrew Smith claims that the widely speculated Utah County strange lights or rather outer space sightings have been from him. “So you’re claiming responsibility for being the alien from outer space,” ABC4 asked Smith to which he replied, yes, unfortunately yes.”

Smith says he experiments with art all the time from machines, water, to lights and now apparently flares. The Lehi man won’t say exactly how he gets those strange lights up in the sky but he admits he uses helium, flares along with some other sorts of apparatuses,” Let’s just say I use helium and it’s not Chinese lanterns up there nor planes with LED lights.”

A lot of people are a bit annoyed with this guy, especially if it’s true, which I suspect it is!

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.

    Thanks for being such a good sport about it in you write up. A lot of people haven’t been, kinda can’t blame em. But I also didn’t want everyone wasting their time and resources if it was just me.

    Andrew, most things can easily be explained, it was just the number of different videos that started to get me interested.

    Do you fancy sharing how you did?
