Man believes strange lights in sky simply can’t be plane or drone

A triangle lights seen in the sky above Leicester do seem to resemble either an aeroplane or a drone – but the man who captured them on camera believes they were moving too strangely in the sky for them to be either type of aircraft.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, was driving along Catherine Street, in the Belgrave area of the city, when he spotted the lights moving overhead on Saturday December 12 at around 4.55pm.

While most people would have dismissed them as either an plane or a drone, the baffled driver believes the simple explanation doesn’t explain what he saw.

He said: “I looked up through our panoramic roof and saw a triangle thing floating above our car with three lights on each corner.

“It immediately caught my eye, and from the bottom of the street all the way into town, this triangle thing followed our direction but constantly travelling in a circular motion.

“At one point it would be on the right of our car, then above it, then to the left of our car, then behind it and then in front of it.

“It was travelling in counter clockwise circles. It seemed to get bigger and smaller too.”

What do you think the three strange lights in the sky were?



The lights continued to fly in a circle over the city, according to the eyewitness, before it was lost from sight after it flew over town past St Matthews.

He said: “Planes fly in straight lines, right?

“I dare you to tell me this is a drone. Absolutely no noise came from it either.”

He said he would be surprised if more people had not seen it and wondered what it was.

This is not the first time these kind of lights have been seen over the city, as in February 2019, ‘a huge triangular UFO with lights on each corner was witnessed slowly and silently gliding through Leicester’.

On the Facebook post, Nigel Bailey wrote at the time: “I’ve just seen a huge triangle-shaped aircraft flying slowly over Leicester.

“I caught up with it in the car but lost it. I saw three helicopters flying around it at a higher altitude than the police helicopter flies around it.

“The triangle was so low that I could make out the shape and the three lights at each corner and it had strobes flashing down the sides.

“It was silent!”
