More People Report Seeing 'UFOs' Flying Over County

UFO Over Wrexham

Unexplained lights seen in the sky over Flintshire on Christmas Day have prompted reports from other people of similar sightings.
     Harry Hughes, of Mynydd Isa, reported seeing five round orange lights in the sky above his house in Grays Road on Christmas Day at about 7.20pm.

He said: "I looked up and saw what looked like five bright orangey-red fireballs flying through the sky, coming from the Bodfari direction.

"They were travelling quite fast, about 10-12 seconds apart and were revolving. They were travelling too fast to be aircraft and were completely silent."

Harry called to his wife Pam to look at the objects before they disappeared and as she followed him out to the garden, they began to change direction.

Harry's description of the unexplained objects matched that of Leigh and Lynn Williams, of Borras, Wrexham, who caught sight of several strange orange orbs in the sky in July. The couple managed to take pictures and these were posted on the Evening Leader website.

The latest report prompted two more Flintshire residents to speak out about their own strange sightings, both of which match the descriptions of the infamous orange orbs.

Mike Jones, of Sychdyn, was sitting outside his house in the early hours of New Year's Day, when he caught sight of two lights in the sky.

He said: "It was about 1.10am and I saw two orange lights in the sky, both travelling at the same speed, with no sound at all. Then they just disappeared.

"They definitely weren't planes or helicopters. They were something very strange."

Jenny May, from Sandycroft, also reported seeing strange objects in the sky above her home in July.

She added: "We were sitting out in the back garden in July with our next door neighbours and at about 11pm we saw four bright orange lights that came from the west and shot up into the sky, then shot off in different directions towards the north.

"They danced before they shot off and even my neighbour, who doesn't believe in that sort of thi
ng, saw them. He was gobsmacked and didn't talk for the rest of the night.

"About two months later my brother, who is another non-believer, saw three bright orange lights in the sky. They then formed a line and shot off. They seemed to be above Airbus in Broughton. We don't know if they are from there."

There have been reports of sightings posted on the Evening Leader website from as far afield as San Diego, California, where a couple claimed they saw four similar glowing orange lights.

Explanations have been offered that the objects were in fact "UFO balloons" or Chinese lanterns, and the issue has been the subject of an ongoing public debate in Flintshire and Wrexham.

l Have your say – do you think the sightings are evidence of alien visitors? Or is there a more earthly explanation? Have you spotted something you can't explain? Go to and let us know.
