Orange Light Linked To UFO Sighting

In the Newbrough area, it seems mysterious lights are causing quite a UFO craze.
One caller, who refused to give his name, claimed that he was driving around 11:30pm when he noticed a very bright orange light in sky. According to his report this light was traveling quite slowly when it stopped, turned around and darted off at a very high speed to the north. The man who reported the claim said “I’m normally very skeptical about these things, but you have to accept the evidence of your own eyes.”
This statement is completely wrong. Although it is highly difficult for humans to admit when they are wrong or that their perceptions have been duped, senses like sight and sound mixed with recollection can easily be distorted over time or during times of excitement.
Another report that was called in said a pretty similar claim as the first individual.
“It was a bright orange saucer shape like a frisbee,” said the man. He also claimed that it switched directions and shot away, again, at a very high speed.
Now this article states that these sightings may be related to the popularity of sky lanterns. I actually would agree with this, because I use sky lanterns frequently. Though one of the individuals said it moved to fast to be one of these lanterns. I have observed that these lanterns can fly amazing distances and they can get caught in air currents which move them at quick speeds, when they were flying slowly seconds before.
