Grimsby Telegraph

MYSTERY still surrounds the appearance of flashing lights in the night sky.

Not even our local star gazers can shed light on the mystery – the latest in a long line of spooky sightings in the Lincolnshire skies.

​ The nighttime phenomena came to light when the Grimsby Telegraph was contacted by Philip Greenfield, of Waltham, on Friday.

He reported seeing flashes light up the sky on Thursday between midnight and 1 am.

He said: "There were three large flashes – far too big to have been planes – which seemed to be coming from the south east."

A Tetney resident said she had seen the flashing lights, too – and has seen them every night since. The villager, who does not wish to be named, said she watched the lights from 11.45 pm to 2.15 am on Thursday.

"At first we thought they were laser beams, but you can't see any beam from the ground.

"They looked as if they were above the clouds and appeared between Tetney and Humberston.

"The light moves around and then disappears and then comes back about half an hour later. "It is fascinating. It darts around quite quickly. We have no street lights on our lane so we get a good look at the sky. I do not know what it is but I am keen to find out."

A neighbour has also seen the lights.

Chairman of Cleethorpes And District Astronomy Society Bill Scutcher said he was baffled by the lights, which he has not seen himself.

"No one has mentioned it to me," he said.

"If they are absolutely sure it is nothing coming from the ground then it is a mystery. "There could be an issue with a nightclub in Cleethorpes using a searchlight, but I have not seen anything."

He said he and fellow astronomers are alerted as soon as The Northern Lights – known as aurora borealis – shift south from the Arctic circle.

He said: "None of us have been alerted, so it is strange."
