A hubbub was made over what seems obviously to be chinese lanterns in the sky across California on New Years Eve.
Terry and Hans Mauth of Auburn said they watched a large egg-shaped object with a bright light shining upward drift over their neighborhood, then suddenly accelerate.
“There was no sound, that’s the funny thing,” Terry said. “Just this big illuminated form.”
Steven Brown of Sacramento reported a similar sighting above Belle Cooledge Park.
Kaye Pinlac of Stockton reported seeing multiple glowing objects that appeared in a formation.
“They were almost in a diamond or triangle shape,” he said. “Then they just started separating.”
Some people have come out with the theory that it could have been floating luminaria light bags, which Mauth dismissed claiming it was too big and moved too fast. I disagree, because Chinese lanterns are EXACTLY what they look like. The wind, at height, can take them in strange directions.
Official air traffic controllers nor pilots have seen or heard anything about the phenomena and the FAA say there has been no unusual flight activity recently in that area.
As we reported before NYE, Sweden was gearing up for a spate of UFO reports that occur around the holiday from… Chinese lanterns.
Case closed people. The answer is obvious, we even WARNED you this would happen. I just wish news reporters would get on board. Honestly! This happens so often, it takes 5 minutes of googling to figure it out.
Addition: Media slow to catch up…
