Clearly a case of group pyschosis.
Not.

The Stoke sighting sounds interesting:
Ian Shepherd, who reported the Stoke sighting, said: "I thought it was a plane at first, but it was moving way too fast to be something from this world.

"It was travelling from left to right, left to right. It was so quick, it was like it was teleporting across the sky.

"It was so far away, it was hard to say what it was exactly, but it was football-shaped and had this light that changed from being constant and white to blinking and rusty-like. It was copper-coloured.


These details (amber or copper coloured light, changing light pattern, appearing to 'teleport') seem very similar to previous UFO sightings in history; not nearly as exciting as Spielberg movie UFOs, but historically familiar. If it's an optical illusion or misidentification, it's one that has happened before.

I suppose it's possible that the port wing (if the plane is moving right-to-left) or center-of-fuselage red anticollision beacon, both normally red, might read as orange.

The Vicky Liu photo, however, is unrelated, from this previous story: http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/Mystery ... html?056#1

and unfortunately that one I think is most likely just a reflection or optical distortion within the camera. For three reasons:

1. Vicky didn't see anything in the sky at the time of taking the photo
2. The lights have a structured 'bulb and reflector' appearance
3. They are a matched pair with exactly the same angle and distance apart as two other sets of street lights - most closely matching the paired lights on the right-hand pole.


The UFODATA project looks like an interesting new attempt at objective UFO/UAP reporting. Not the first time this has been tried, of course, but who knows, it might work this time.

I was intrigued by the timely appearance of the "Nato Spy Plane." It is clear from the photo that it was not a passenger or a cargo plane and I wonder why it was in the area.

Interesting. The only flashing lights that I know of on civilian aircraft are either High Intensity Strobe Lights - they are a brilliant actinic white and are often mounted on wingtips - or ACB lights, which are flashing orange beacons.

As well as port and starboard lights there are a number of other white lights at wingtip and on the vertical stabiliser. It might be that they were looking at more than one plane.
