UFO Image Taken by BBC Cameraman Tom Hines - 22 July 2003
BBC cameraman Tom Hines noticed three mysterious bright lights hovering in the sky near Hanbury, Worcestershire, UK on Tuesday, 22 July 2003 and filmed them with a video camera. Skeptics assert that the lights may have been flares, but Hines remains convinced it was a UFO and described the objects as disappearing and reappearing lights:
"I kind of saw two bright lights and thought they were stars at first," Hines states. "I pointed out where they were and started filming. They started disappearing and reappearing and at one point there was three bright lights. They kept appearing very randomly in different areas of the sky."
Local Hanbury resident John Dawson also noticed the lights.
"We went through all kinds of evaluations, like could they be fireworks, could they be flares and to be honest with you we couldn't come to any decision as to what they were," Dawson said.
Science correspondent David Gregory of BBC Midlands Today examined the tape and has spoke to local UFO experts about it. Gregory explains, "It could have been the Hanbury Orbs, which are a series of lights which are known to hover above the landscape in this area. But nobody knows for sure."
