Skeptic News: Is it a bird is it a plane…?

…or is it a Chinese lantern?

There was a recent spate of UFO sightings reported over Weber County, Utah which caused residents of Washington terrace some degree of consternation.

However the Unidentified flying objects have since been identified as Chinese lanterns released by local school children. A group of  Bonneville High School juniors launched 16 Chinese wish lanterns from a park and this gave rise to the sightings.

Chinese lanterns are a common explanation for UFO sightings and several incidents of UFO activity can be explained by people mistaking them for extraterrestrial craft.

In the UK UFO sightings in Shropshire, Wigan and Llandaf have all, after investigation, been attributed to Chinese lanterns.
