‘UFO’ over the Recre

GOODNESS gracious! Great balls of orange!

An unidentified flying object was spotted in the night sky above Whitehaven Rugby League Club last Saturday (April 4th 2009).

Trevor Palmer, who runs Ultimate Sounds mobile disco, was holding a charity race night at the venue when he and another man went outside at 8.45pm.

As they were chatting, Trevor looked up and saw five orange orbs all moving in a perfect ‘W’ formulation.

“There was no explanation for it,’’ he said. “The lights were about 400-500ft in the sky, evenly spaced and there wasn’t any noise.’’ He said there wasn’t any wind and the lights were moving at speed, which could eliminate Chinese lanterns as an explanation.

The orbs were moving towards the Kells End of the Recreation Ground, and then onto the West Cumberland Hospital where the lights went off, came on again and then died again.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,’’ he said.

NW UFO Research are investigating.

  • A Reader of the Whitehaven News later contacted the paper to claim the lights were Chinese lanterns he had launched for a family birthday party.
