- UFO mystery sightings were balloons
The mystery lights in the sky
Telford was gripped by UFO fever at the weekend when people spotted
dozens of weird lights floating through the night sky. But the
display was in fact produced by balloons designed to hoax the
The sightings were made just before midnight on Saturday in the
south Telford area.
Reader Natalie Ashman, who e-mailed us photographs of the vision,
said she saw a cluster of about 20 red lights passing over the town.
But the lights were almost certainly caused by special balloons
which cost £10 for a packet of six. Ray Prince, director of
manufacturers UFO Balloons, which sells up to 80 each week, said a
regular customer had informed him that about 200 balloons had been
launched in south Telford.
The above events occurred on 1st July, 2006 which was, of course,
Euro Pride Day!
These pesky pink balloons have caused trouble before of course!
