Reports of bright orange lights in sky

The Echo has received a number of reports from people claiming to have seen 'bright orange lights' in the sky across Lincolnshire

Stargazers from across Lincolnshire have flooded the Echo with reports of strange, glowing objects in the skies.

Reported sightings have taken place from March 31 to April 6, at various points across Lincolnshire, including Spridlington, North Hykeham, Washingborough and Eagle.

The first report to the Echo came from Lenny Remzi, a 41-year-old disabled man from Sutton.

He explained that he was driving home with his friends from Mablethorpe, when he saw the mysterious orange light coming from Louth.

"Me and my mates were watching the skies at around 11pm on Sunday 4 April," he explained.

"We saw a bright orange light over Louth, going towards Mablethorpe.

"It was just an orange ball that came shooting overhead. An aeroplane went over the top of it while we were watching, so it definitely couldn't have been another plane.

"It stayed over Mablethorpe sea, and just hovered there.

"My mate thought it was a Chinese lantern at first, but it was flying much faster, and going on a level course. It overtook our car, so we stopped and watched it.

"There were no wing lights or anything, just a big, bright, orange one. It just hovered and shot off really fast - faster than any jets we'd seen.

"It didn't even make any noise - so we really don't know what this could have been."

The reports received by the Echo follow the same descriptions - a singular, bright orange or red light, floating across the sky silently, at a speed too fast to be considered an aeroplane, helicopter, or other earthly aircraft.

    I am a school teacher from lincoln. I believe that the little green men from space we hear about is an updated, modernization of elves and fairies living in the woods that we find in historic folklore. However, last night and on the previous night just before 10pm I saw these orange lights over the skies between north hykham and brant road in lincoln. I would just like to confirm that they are not chinese lanterns. With reference to Lenny's account there was also a plane close by on the second night of my sightings. I sit firmly on the fence here - I am totally unbiased in my opinion and have never had any interest in this kind of thing. I would just like to voice the opinion that Lenny and other witnesses are not crazy or seeking attention

    I reckon its all the hot air being spouted by politicans, now that the dreaded four weeks are upon us, that is causing this effect.
