A Plymouth woman spotted six bright lights in the sky this morning – and has no idea what they are.

Emma Snell told Plymouth Live she had dropped her husband off for work at around 7am and had parked at the car park on the Plymouth side of the Tamar Bridge.

Looking ahead, she saw five bright lights in the sky – before a sixth “appeared from nowhere”.

Emma originally thought the lights were from military helicopters, but when she realised the lights weren’t moving, she changed her mind and suspected they might even be from out of this world.

Emma admitted the random flashes took her by surprise.

Instead of being arranged in a line, “the lights were just clustered-together and close-knit,” she said.

“You couldn’t miss them,” she added.

Mystery - the odd lights in the sky reportedly 'appeared from nowhere'

She said the cloudy weather made it hard to distinguish what the lights were – and where they were coming from.

Emma would love to know if other people in Plymouth saw the lights, and what they think caused them.

Could the lights have been an aeroplane?

Back in 2018, Plymouth Live was inundated with messages from gobsmacked people who spotted strange ‘dancing’ lights in the sky.

Soon after, management at a pyrotechnics company got in touch to shed some light on the strange lights.

They said the mysterious UFO was actually an airborne firework display put on at a wedding .

At the time, the groom added: “I wanted to bring a little aviation to the party. I’d seen a similar display practicing over Exmouth with my dad a few years ago so asked around and was put in touch by one of my first flying instructors.”

Were the lights from sky lanterns?

A Plymouth mum shared the heart-breaking truth behind a ‘UFO sighting’ in Plymouth in January.

Zoe Ellis tragically lost her son in November, when he was just five days old.

On Tuesday, January 28, the family said goodbye to baby Cowan Ellis-Pond at his funeral, before letting off balloons and lanterns “for our little man to catch all over the world.”

Was it the moon?

Just a week ago, a woman from Ivybridge witnessed a strange sight in the sky – which she believed could have been extra-terrestrial.

But she was adamant it wasn’t the moon.

“At first I thought it was the moon, but then I saw a half moon on this particular night as well, so it couldn’t have been.

“Then I was looking at the stars, thinking I must have been mistaken, but it was so much bigger than the stars too. It looked as though it was getting bigger and lighter and changing shape.

“My sister also spotted the exact same thing a couple of nights back.”
