UFO, no?

The local Guardian have reported this as well, but a couple of blog readers have e-mailed me with their first-hand sighting of these strange lights that appeared in the sky over Worcester Park on Sunday night, including this from Anne:

"I wonder if you or any of your readers saw the strange lights bouncing around in the sky above Worcester Park, from about midnight to 1am Sunday night.

It would be wonderful if they were UFOs - that would really help put Worcester Park on the map - but I'm sure there's a much more mundane explanation.

There were three balls of light, quite ghostly looking, high in the clouds, each circulating in its own orbit, but coming together every so often to bounce off each other. It was quite intriguing to watch."

Did you anything? Eye witness accounts (and photos, of course) all welcome!
We wondered if it was a laser show, though there were no visible upward beams visible linking them to the ground.

Someone else said perhaps it was ball lightening, but the movement seemed a bit too regular.

Anyway, if anyone can cast any light on these lights, so to speak, I'd be grateful, I'm curious to know what or who caused them.

Why was Anne looking at the sky at 1 o'clock in the morning? If you have a photo of this (the UFO's or even Anne looking out of her window), what were you doing, looking out of the window at one in the morning with a camera in your hand?
If I want UFO stories, I'll stick to the Currant Bun.

It sounds like one of those rotating spotlight things that brings the lights together at the end of each rotation. They'll illuminate the first thing they touch which, if there's no haze, will be the bottom of the clouds

It was mentioned in the London Lite. Not an alien invasion but a house party in Hounslow.

Yeah right, that's just a government cover story.

You cannot claim them for WP as I saw them in New Malden upon return from Guilfest. At first I thought it was the alchohol but it appears they were real.....

I think what you were seeing anne was lights from one of the various nightclubs in the are and if you were on a hill it could even have been from Wembley Arena/Stadium..

They were in fact lights from a 'skytracker' that were being used in Hampton Court house as part of a Birthday Party.

MYSTERY SOLVED :-)

And whoever said it might be 'ball lightning' - since when does ball lightning rotate in a pattern of three separate orbs for over an hour.... lol

Has Captain America aka The Voice Of Reason, been abducted by aliens?
