UFOs sighted above Launceston, Australia

Tasmanian resident Brendon Hill filmed a series of strange lights in the skies over Mayfield last week.

"On Thursday I dragged my three mates outside to show them and they were bewildered - none of them could describe what they saw or could come up with an explanation of what it was," he says. The local meteorological office has said that they received no reports at that time.

"A Tasmanian man has described as "spooky" an unexplained flashing object he saw in the night sky above Launceston last week."

Sorry to disappoint, these are images of my house at night. I have 6 metal halide lamps arranged to light the surrounding bush. When I ignite the lamps, they are initially green and warm up to a bright white. There are large trees in front of the house and in the breeze, they would make the lights flicker in this fashion. The ironic thing is that on the night in question, I was lighting up for a colleague in Riverside to locate my house through the night sky. The following Saturday, I had a friend around for the first time since we built the place so I lit up again (the footage on the web) Thi... [More]

I would love to be able to take you at your word, and I have little doubt that this video is of ground lights, but I will require some kind of proof to accept your claim. Can you reproduce the original video by lighting up your ground lights and having someone record the event from across the river? Until you can produce something convincing, your claim will be as believable as the suggestion that ET was hovering above where you claim your house to be. I look forward to your response, and hopefully... your video evidence to back up your claim. Cheers.

looks like the lights are stationary, like you see at a sports stadium and at the end of the video its looks like they where just simply turned off.

What crap, any like-minded person who thought they were filming something out of the ordinary, would be heard on audio speaking ,ooooooing, aaaahhhhhhing, Don't you think?

My thoughts exactly. If they showed a daytime video of the same exact location and one could only see the sky around the area where the lights appeared it would help a lot. Not to say it couldn't still have been hoaxed but it would eliminate the cars/people on a hill argument at least.
