Prepare for sky lantern season
Sky lanterns have become increasingly popular in the West in the last couple of years. Traditionally used in festivals throughout Asia, the lanterns are now commonly seen in Western skies, and especially around New Year’s.
And as we all know, the lanterns are often misidentified as UFOs. Every year we see tons of videos and photos of lanterns from witnesses claiming they have captured a fleet of UFOs.
So this is just a heads-up — if it’s orange, floating, flickering and seemingly coming in fleets, and you’ve just downed your nth glass of Champagne — relax, you’re probably just witnessing a man-made craft built with tissue paper, some wire and paraffin wax.
