Residents in County Down have raised the possibility of a UFO sighting above the skies of Bangor.
Several callers to BBC Northern Ireland have reported a series of strange orange lights in the night sky.
Air traffic control at Belfast International Airport said it had also received reports about the sightings, including one from the Coastguard.
However, the airport said it had no record of any aircraft in the sky at the time.
The callers said the sightings had been made on Saturday evening.
Clifford Rossbottom from Bangor told the BBC: “There were three orange globes – nearly in a straight line – they were an absolutely fascinating sight.
Thing is though, (as was pointed out on p45) that description of ‘three lights in a row’ sounds very similar to a recent UFO discussion here on Blather which suggested that a spate of recent sightings over London were, in fact, rogue Chinese lanterns (popular at weddings and so on) which had escaped into the sky.
Anyone from Bangor out there who can tell us more?
