Chinese lanterns are commonly reported as UFOs.</p> <p> A letter sent from Air Command at High Wycombe stated:  Unless there is evidence of a potential threat to the UK from an external source, and to date no UFO report has revealed such evidence. We do not attempt to identify the precise nature of each sighting reported to us. </p> <p> The reports were revealed when the MoD shut down its UFO hotline after more than 50 years faithfully recording reports of flying saucers, and patiently answering questions from the public.</p> <p> The files reveal how the hotline, run by the National Archives department of the RAF, was closed after becoming inundated with reports that turned out to be Chinese lanterns.( By November 2009, when it closed, it had had 643 reports, treble the previous year s total.</p> <p> </div> <center> permanent link: http://www.ufocasebook.com/2013/smalleyreport.html <p> </font> <font color="#CCCCFF" size="3"> source & references: <p> </font> <font color="#FFFFFF" size="3"> <p> http://www.ilkestonadvertiser.co.uk/news/ilkeston-news/ufo-sighting-at-smalley-revealed-in-mod-report-1-5835042 </td> </tr> </table> <p> <p align="center"> <font size="3" color="#ffffff"> Connect with the UFO Casebook... <p> <Table border="0" width="300"> <tr> <td> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/ufocasebookvideo?feature=mhee"> <Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/youtube.png" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="UFO Casebook on Youtube"> </td> <td> <a href="https://plus.google.com/104716329683427655868?prsrc=3"> <Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/gplus-32.png" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="Google+"></a> </td> <td> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/feedburner/Qpaj"><Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/rssicon.PNG" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="UFO Casebook News Feed"></a> </td> <td> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/UFO-Casebook/138610616173863"> <Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/facebooklogo.png" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="UFO Casebook on Facebook"></a> </td> <td> <a href="http://ufocasebook.conforums.com"> <Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/forum.png" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="Forum"> </td> <td> <a href="http://www.ufocasebook.com/2012/recentreadercomments.html"> <Img SRC="http://www.ufocasebook.com/graphics/messages.png" border="0" width="32" height="32" alt="Recent Comments"> </td> </tr> </table> <p> <div align="center"> <Table width="640"> <TR> <TD> <span style="display:none;">***</span> <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" id="pnyxeDiscussItJs" src="http://www.pnyxe.com/PnyxeDiscussItJs.jsp"></script> <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" id="pnyxeDiscussItInitJs35708">try { var zpbw_webWidgetClientKey = "84raj7zE_7.LYlsmF0YRlg"; var pnyxeDiscussIt = new PnyxeDiscussIt(); pnyxeDiscussIt.init("35708"); } catch (e) {}</script> <noscript><a href="http://www.pnyxe.com/DiscussIt-comment-system?utm_source=wwcCodeSpanPromotion3" rel="nofollow">Free Comment Box</a></noscript> </td> </tr> </table> <p> <script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-7518747415195612"; /* 300x250, created 6/13/09 */ google_ad_slot = "0022761748"; google_ad_width = 300; google_ad_height = 250; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> <p> </font> <div style="margin-left: 40px;"> <div align="left"> <font size="2" color="#FFFFFF"> Fair Use Notice: This web site contains some copyrighted material whose use has not been authorized by the copyright owners.
