FIVE mysterious orange lights spotted in the sky by a Sully family have become the latest potential UFO sighting in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Richards family saw three of the bright lights in a triangular formation above their Oyster Bend home on Wednesday (March 24) at around 8.30pm.
The quick-thinking family recorded a video of the moving lights and have posted the results on video sharing website, You Tube.
Christine Richards said: “My daughter saw the first light, then there were four more.
“It was very unusual because there wasn’t any noise coming from them and they looked to be in a triangular formation.
“At first I thought it could be an air balloon but whatever it was, it was motoring, not floating around.
“We’re used to planes flying over our bungalow but this was very different,” she added.
“These looked like a ship or craft.”
Lights that were spotted in Barry last month were said to be from Chinese Lanterns.
The paper lanterns, which are lit up by a candle and drift on the wind, give a glow depending on the colour of the paper shade.
Many of them are red-orange, the same colour of the glow that UFO spotters have reported. Barry Island Coastguard member Dave Ball said: “These lanterns are becoming more common and are a cause for concern around the coast of the country.
“They should not be flown around here as there is a warning on the packet not to fly within five miles of an airport.
“The light lasts for approximately 20 minutes, and light up the inside of the lantern, giving an orange-red glow.”
