LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Flying lanterns UFO's on Whidbey

To the editor:

In reference to recent odd sightings in the skies, last night, March 27, between 9 and 9:45 p.m. while driving home from a friend’s house, my family and I saw two orange glowing objects in the sky above the intersection of S.W. Eighth and Highway 20 in Oak Harbor.

Clearly visible over Skagit Farmers and slowly heading toward the moon until they burnt out, we could make them out as flying lanterns (similar to ones prevalent in some forms of Eastern mystical worship). We think them a very plausible explanation for recent “UFO” sightings over Whidbey Island.
