It’s the night of 19th of March 2011 – the Super Moon – and a paranormal researcher is in his freezing back garden with a video camera. He’s there to capture some footage of the moon. Instead, he captures three strange lights.
It was about 11pm and freezing cold but it was so light outside and really quite beautiful, looking across the fields and listening to the night wildlife. It was a clear night and there was no wind at all. The video shows the moon filmed through trees. I had my back to the fields at this point, then when I turned to look out over the fields right in front of me was three huge red lights moving across the sky in total silence. I was filming in infa-red at the time and this was when the lights were at their brightest. I switched to normal mode and the lights began to vanish one by one in a clear, cloudless sky.
The researcher, known only as MoonShadowCove at this point, goes on to say that the video fails to do justice to the intensity of the lights. An aircraft appears at the end of the video and this is a handy contrast because it helps rule out that these three lights were other planes.
But could they not just be Chinese lanterns? That would explain the way the original glow, the hovering and then the gentle fade to black.
I had a nose around the web and can’t find another “MoonShadowCove” used as an alias. There’s no Twitter account, for example, but he seems to be responding to messages on YouTube. In his own words;
I am a paranormal researcher, ghosts, big cat sightings, ufos, etc, so this for me was just fantastic.

What do you think? Just Chinese lanterns or are these lights something that requires a harder look and more discussion?
