Lights, Lanterns and UFOs!

Lots and lots of people are seeing strange lights all over the world. Here in the UK, there are new sightings on an almost daily basis – but what are they?

Below is one possible explanation, and one that I personally believe is the cause of 99.9% of all the sightings. I know this will open up a debate, and I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but without solid video proof, Chinese style lanterns are probably the best explanation.

The heavenly lantern festival takes place once a year, and usually held 15 days after the Chinese New Year. Historically, paper lanterns where used to send messages over the enemy lines.
