Get them while they’re hot! According to a September 2008 article in the Stockport Express, a trio of red lights moved slowly across the skies of Stockport, with reports coming from Romiley and Marple. I have seen this article “quoted” on the UFO casebook website as well. This whole affair is pretty unremarkable as far as UFO sightings go, but I find it interesting – a local UFO sighting is not something you read about every day.
We have at least three separate eye-witness account, a blurry photograph and not much else. Brian Vike from the HBCC UFO Research suggested that they are Chinese Lanterns, while ex-MoD UFO expert Nick Pope thinks that a more likely possibility is a massive triangular craft, presumably with a single light on each corner.
