IT wasn't aliens - it was the Andersons who were responsible for the bright orange globes of light which appeared in the St Albans sky on Sunday, February 1.
Brian and Marion Wade who live in Batchwood Drive, St Albans, spotted two lights in the sky above their garden and thought that they might have been UFOs.
Their teenage daughter Savanna filmed the incident on her mobile phone and the video on this website prompted a number of people to contact the newspaper reporting the same phenomenon.
But the Anderson family in nearby Langley Crescent have since come forward with a probable explanation for the incident.

Angela Anderson explained that her daughter Siobhan was celebrating her 18th birthday when they let off sky candles at around 9.30pm, the time the Wades spotted the lights.
The lights, otherwise known as Chinese lanterns, work by using a candle which heats up a little balloon so that it floats up into the sky.

Angela said: "We actually let five off all together and they blew away quickly as it was quite windy. I hope this puts people's minds to rest and that they don't think St Albans is ready for UFOs yet!
