New Zealand UFO Mystery Solved
By Arlene Paredes | February 13, 2012 11:30 AM EST
Kiwis were caught in the mystery of what seemed like UFO sightings in a major city over the weekend, but an answer has come to light soon enough, Fairfax NZ reported.
The Taranaki Daily News reported receiving alerts regarding strange lights in the sky at about 9.30 pm on Saturday at New Plymouth of the Taranaki Region.
One of the daily's readers reported sightings of a set of six bright red lights moving from the east before turning and disappearing in the north.
''At first there were three lights travelling in a triangle formation and then three more followed,'' said the man.
The Daily News reported the sightings on its website, and an answer surfaced from one the readers.
Bride-to-be Sarah Lineham, who got married Sunday to Daniel Le Breton, said that during a banquet dinner for the bridal party a night before the wedding, celebrants lit a series of floating lanterns, which were then sent off into the sky from around 9.30 pm.
''So it was us, I'm afraid,'' she said, adding, "It was fairly windy last night, and most of the lanterns took off fairly quickly.''
