Several readers have got in touch about the mysterious lights spotted by a Bentley Heath resident last week. Sue Dalton saw the strange sight in the early hours of April 23. She said the sky had a red hue, with lights weaving in and out the clouds.

Land Rover worker Derek Robinson revealed that he and his colleague were working a night shift when they saw the same thing.

“They were a bit spooky we watched them for 15/20 minutes until they just vanished,” he said.

“They were just as you described and we can’t think of any explanation as to what they were.”

David Hardy, from the International Association of Astronomical Artists, said: “I wouldn’t rule out the aurora; the sun is very active at present, and it can be seen in southern latitudes.”
