Chinese Lantern Lands In Park At Bradford UK

Date: September 4, 2010
Time: Evening.

Hi, just to let you know, I have just seen 3 lights just like yours. I think they may be hot air balloons, also last night two others passed over, but seems to do large circles covering a few miles before disappearing in the same direction as tonight's. The general direction is the same as following the M606. and Cleckheaton Road.

The unusual thing tonight was one of the three was in a slightly different direction and much lower. I don't know how hot air balloons can navigate a circle, but last nights did. They weren't aircraft of any other type as they were silent and the light was orange. My son has just come in and it seems one has landed in our park. It was some sort of lantern with a fire lighter? underneath. The circles yesterday must have been the winds.

Mystery solved! I think it may be something to do with Chinese celebrations.
