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.

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.

    We lived in Texas and about 15 years ago my dad and I were taking my step mom to the hospital. I’m guessing about midnight and were leaving the house and were backing out from around the house when this flashing light came from no where and nearly landed right in front of us maybe 20 yards away and then darted off quicker than quick…my dad said $^&%…did you see that?…i said if I would have blinked I wouldn’t have….what the $^$@ was that?…he says look it already out of here…it sure was in a hurry but seemed to want us to see it. I’ve seen another describe it as team rocket blasted off again!!! Pokemon villains. We both would have thought the other was crazy if we both hadn’t have seen the same thing.
