The UFOs were seen by residents across the town at around 5.30pm on Saturday, prompting a number of calls and e-mails to the Lynn News from intrigued residents. "They certainly were like nothing I have seen before. They all moved very slowly together and it was very strange. "There was no noise and after a few minutes they just faded and vanished," said Jacqueline Hunt, of Hillen Road, South Lynn There were theories the lights were bombs, signals from a ship at sea, helicopters and alien spaceships. The lights were in fact Chinese-style lanterns released at a wedding reception being held at the town's Riverside Restaurant, on King Street. The happy couple had wanted something a bit different on their special day and no-one at the restaurant expected the resulting fuss. Owner Miss Pat Isbill said: "They were called glow lanterns and worked on the same principle as a hot air balloon. I had never seen them before. They were quite large =96 at least two foot tall =96 and they were very effective. "We had police permission to set them off, so we didn't cause any full-scale emergencies!" Miss Diane Breedon, a member of staff at the restaurant, was surprised when she realised the lanterns were the hot topic of a Radio Norfolk phone-in on Sunday. "All these people had phoned and texted in to say they had seen amber lights in the sky at around 5.30pm, and I remembered that was when we set them off. "People were putting two and two together and making five, thinking they were bombs from Marham or alien air craft. I phoned in and put everyone straight," she explained. Now, as they say, the truth really is out there.
