UFO over Southbourne? (or just another Chinese Lantern)

First published in News

Southbourne man Chris sent us this video, which he thinks could be of a UFO.

Mysterious lights are often seen over the town, but they usually turn out to be Chinese Lanterns or the SBS on late night training.

yes myself and my passenger both saw these lights but goodness knows what they were. They were
steady white lights, not flashing with 2 of them some distance apart. Not a clue but dont think they were planes or helicopters. They did not seem to be moving. A bit like looking at a pair of venus's

You're all wrong to dismiss this as complete tosh. I'm certainly convinced and this is some of the most conclusive evidence I've seen (today) for the existence of alien intelligent life outside Dorset.

The way the lights appear to be "in the sky" suggests to me they're not on the ground and the fact that there seem to be two of them proves beyond reasonable doubt that there is more than one of them.

Unbelievable!

I would be happy to believe that this is evidence of intelligent life. God knows, there is little enough evidence of that on earth!

More than likely to be the Chinese Lanterns again. These are often sent up by students celebrating events. Theyve been seen over Bmth several times and still fool many of us.

I'd be interested to know what time this was reported to be as we released Chinese lanterns from a party in Swanage on Saturday evening.
