I saw these strange lights in the sky at 22.35 this evening, the 20th February 2010. They were orange or amber in colour and flew in a loose formation of 8 or 10 northeast over Oxford, England. After a minute or two they slowed down, flickered and went out. Were they Chinese Lanterns? If so why did they fly so fast; theres almost no wind, and how did they slow down? Also the little wind around is a south-easterly. Im not sure enough to make an official UFO sightings report. Judging their altitude is difficult, but they were visible from a 20 or 25 degree elevation as they appeared in the southwest. And as you can hear in the video, my Extremely-Proud-and-Dignified- Brother-Porter Massoud also witnessed the lights and he was on the other side of the road. Tomorrow at the hospital I'll ask him what elevation he thought they were at and that will mean we can triangulate a rough altitude. What do you think? Please comment and let me know.

I also saw one of these, time was Friday 6pm. Bright orange/changing to red moving upwards at a very fast pace.It was not the usual colour for a lantern,it was also witnessed by a friend of mine.
Never had time to get my camera though.
It also had some kind of halo around it, possible that it was caused by the damp atmosphere in the air.
Which also leads me to think that it was flying low.
It never flickered, as do Chinese lanterns.
