Strange lights seen over camp site.

It is the latest in a series of sightings which has baffled onlookers and excited UFO spotters across the UK.

The lights were seen above Ullswater on Saturday night (12th June 2009) over the Park Foot campsite.

People rushed out of their tents to stand and watch in awe as the lights darted back and forth.

They weaved in and out of one another and appeared to fade and then light up again as they soared through a clear sky.

Camper Paul Haigh, 28, of Darlington, said: “Most people had turned in for the night but we were woken by a commotion.

“Someone had spotted something and dashed out to get a better look.

“Soon everyone was outside their tents and looking up into the sky, it was like a scene from Close Encounters.

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.
