I had just left tescoo in lewes on 28th July ( last monday ) about 9.30pm. It was starting to rain and the thunderstorms where just begining. Having walked out of the doors of tescos into the car park, i looked up and in the sky beyond golf course there was a grouping of lights, (about 10 of them) hovering, and moving slowley eastwards along the downs. They where yellowy oarnge in colour and very bright.
Did Anybody else see them. As i have never seen anything like it before, and it has intreeged me.
I know that a few months ago a similar sighting was spotted around uckfield and they turned out to be chineese lantans. But i cant see people lighting these in the rain.

Sorry Jason, that was rude of me. I think it must have been Chinese Lanterns again. Even in the rain, they would still rise.

Not a problem. You maybe right in saying they where lanterns. but it was quite a spectacle. I Take it your not a believer?

I think that if there were other life forms out there, we would have known by now but then how do you explain the wierd lines in Peru? However, I can't believe that we are the only life form in our Galaxy, let alone the Universe. So I guess that it does make me a believer

Talking of big lady's - what about that Sikh girl who won her battle to wear a bangle to school - she's huge! She looks way too big to be at school. I certainly would not ask her to remove he bangle, or knuckle dusters!

I didn't see the Sikh girl but I don't see why they tried to make her not wear it. Was it a huge thing? The bangle?

"UFO" sightings in Postslade last night according to the radio and thought to be those "chinky lantern" things

Not sure that chinese lanterns would work when wet. This would make them much heavier to lift with just a bit of hot air, and also they are only made of tissue paper so would probably fall apart when wet ? Just my thoughts, not that I am saying it was aliens or anything !!
