Since last summer, Peterborough has been having reports of unexplained flying objects and mystery lights in the sky.
Reports in August were said to be the recently restored Vulcan bomber doing test flights over the area.
In October, a fireball streaked across the. It was excused as a “unusually large” meteor. November followed with more sighting and reports, these also explained as more Vulcan flights.
In January, The Evening Telegraph reported other unexplained lights at about midnight on New Years Days. It took several days for the story to come out to credit a family setting off Chinese lanterns as the cause of these unexplained lights.
Weird things in the sky continued.
On the night of April 8th, an odd craft was seen circling the area. It was later explained as a airplane with “thermal imaging equipment” collecting data on energy usage of homes.
Which all brings us to May 3rd, with more unexplained lights in the sky over Peterborough.
Multiple reports of 8 to 10 lights put the objects in the sky a little after 10pm, “We all got out to look but there was no noise, a clear sky and these objects seemed to be heading towards Whittlesey.”
A witness from Orton Longueville stated, “They were quite low down and all floating together. They were an orange and yellow color and looked like candles floating. There was no noise coming from them. We tried to take pictures but nothing came out on the camera and the lights floated towards Orton Hall Hotel.”
Oddly enough, these descriptions don’t match another that was reported the same night, “My daughter spotted these strange lights in the sky and phoned me. I had a look and, although faint, a beam of light could be seen coming from the Peterborough area. It was obviously someone shining a very strong light on to the low cloud base. UFOs – rubbish.”
So six different UFO ‘events’ over Peterborough since August of last year. Explained away as test military flights, meteors, Chinese lanterns, airplanes, and lights on clouds.
Seems a bit suspicious to me.
