CYBERSPACE has been buzzing with stories of mysterious sightings above the skies of Suffolk as the latest UFO mystery hots up.

One person from Ipswich reported seeing a silent “orange fireball”, while another claimed to have spotted bright lights randomly switching on and off as they travelled over Bury St Edmunds.

A flurry of reports have been posted on The Evening Star website after a former soldier said he saw 100 glowing orbs less than two miles above his house near Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire last month.

Responding the serviceman's experience, poster Martin Laurance said he saw something similar.

“I witnessed four very bright separately moving lights travelling in a north-easterly direction on May 16 over Bury St Edmunds,” he wrote.

“They did not produce any sound, did not flicker or glow in any way and I was able to see them fly over the full arc of the sky and over the horizon in the north east.

“I have seen Chinese lanterns and these were definitely not those. On April 18, I saw more similar lights, six of them, travelling eastwards from over Bury St Edmunds. On this occasion, these lights were switching off and on randomly. They were very dramatic and an eerie sight in the sky.”

Others also wrote in after reading about a 56-year-old man who was left shocked and confused after claiming to have seen 11 bright orange globes flying over his home in Thorpe Marriot, also near Huntingdon, last month.

Kieren Lewis, from Ipswich, wrote on Thursday: “My parents and I tonight spotted what appeared to be an orange fireball which then turned into a very bright light.

“No noise at all could be heard. It looked as if it was getting further away and appeared to go up into the sky and disappeared.”

Alex Prowse added: “On Saturday, May 30, I was driving at about 3.30pm from Ipswich town centre towards Warren Heath. Coming from the left side and ahead of me were two large, white shapes.

“They were too small for hot air balloons and too large for the lanterns which I have used myself in the past. I'm not suggesting they were UFOs. I'm just puzzled by the size of these things.”
