THE curator of Allhallows Museum in Honiton, who was among a large number of people to report UFO sightings in the Honiton area last Saturday, says the orange lights she saw were not the result of Chinese lanterns nor mini hot air balloons.

Margaret Lewis has plotted the movements of the nine orange lights using a photograph of the sky above her Honiton home.

"They were all travelling up from below the horizon, which is why I took notice," she said.

"If they had appeared from over the horizon, I would have just thought they were planes from Dunkeswell.
