East Croydon residents Malcolm and Kim were in their garden, taking pictures of their prize pumpkins, when they looked into the sky and saw several UFOs (light). The slow, ethereal lights, drifted across the sky and formed into a line before the lead light shot off (faded out).

This is obviously just Chinese lanterns, which still seem to cause a lot of confusion and excitement – with close to 70 million people living in the UK, educating them all to the fact that they are not seeing UFOs is going to be difficult!

What’s your thoughts? Lanterns, Aircraft or Aliens?

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.
