It is the latest in a series of sightings which have excited UFO spotters across the UK. The lights were seen drifting over the Park Foot campsite in Ullswater in the Lake District on Saturday night. ‘UFO’-style lights drift across the skies above Ullswater in Cumbria on Saturday night People rushed out of their tents to stand and watch in awe as the lights soared through a clear sky. Camper Paul Haigh, 28, of Darlington, said: ‘Most people had turned in for the night but we were woken by a commotion. ‘Someone had spotted something and dashed out to get a better look. Soon everyone was outside their tents and looking up into the sky, it was like a scene from Close Encounters. ‘The lights were amazing and seemed to fly in formation, they were darting around, fading and lighting up again. There was ever more than six in the sky at any one time, but as one faded another lit up, it was a really weird spectacle. Witnesses said the lights seemed to be moving in formation ‘There were various theories as to what they were, someone said Chinese lanterns, but they seemed to be moving too fast. They looked as though they were being propelled under their own power rather than being blown by the wind, it was a still night.’ Lucy Gray, 26, of Leeds, said: ‘They seemed to be dancing around in the sky, not just racing straight across it like clouds. They were moving in formation, keeping a regular distance apart and they’d all shift around at the same time. ‘It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen and I can’t explain it, unless they were aircraft on a training exercise.’ The weekend’s display is the latest in a string of sightings across the UK of unidentified flying lights. This month alone, unexplained illuminations have been spotted in Lincolnshire, Merseyside and Cambridgeshire.
