No, and it wasn’t Superman either, say two locals who have seen mysterious lights in the sky around the area.
In response to local astronomer Wiktor Maslowski’s sighting of strange lights above Loughborough on Tuesday April 24, two further sightings have been reported to the Echo.
Paul Seymour, of Loughborough, spotted a strange light while taking a photograph of Venus in the sky on April 22.
He said: “I was at the back of the Moon and Bell and it was a lovely evening. Venus was ever so bright so I took a couple of photographs. When I looked back at them there’s something else in the photographs, a light.”
Air enthusiast Tom Gibson of East Leake has a barn under the flight path to East Midlands Airport and it was in October last year that he saw something strange.
He said: “I saw five blue lights quite low in the sky.
“Now I follow lots of aircraft and I’ve not seen anything like that before.
“One of the lights zoomed off to the left at great speeds over Loughborough.
“They then all disappeared at a huge rate of knots.
“It was unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

witness.: I was at Gerdau steel mill. I saw it, but I was one of three. I only saw lights. It was dark. We thought it was a helicopter, but unlike any helicopter we had ever seen. It has 8 lights. I asked everyone whey they thought it was. They all said, they wer'nt

witness.: sure what it was. So, I just put it down as an anomaly, but the other would not let it go. Turns out that I saw second to see it.

witness.: It was a night, so we couldn't see anything but the triangle shaped lights. After careful consideration, I'm sure that what I saw was an anomaly. It was a whether balloon for sure or maybe a swamp gas event. Their is a swamp in Colonial Heights.

witness.: It could have been Venus. Eight lights can form a ball and look like Venus. But, I'm sure now it was a helicopter out of Ft. Lee, but I do not blame Ft. Lee. I'm sure it was just an oversight. Just a clarification, The lights were Diamond shaped.[i

witness.: Please forget this sighting. I am convinced that nothing happened, I have been under stress, and my testimony is unreliable at best, Sorry for the confusion. And, please forgive me.

CMR: It's hard to tell what happened to me in so few words. I was heading home. It was 6:11 p.m. - the next thing I knew it was 6:29 p.m and I had no idea where I was. I was heading in the opposite direction from my way home and it ws 6:30....

CMR: I have had a previous experience with a Being of Light who spoke to me 'without speaking' and I answered.. without speaking. I don't know if that event and this lost time - plus coming to going in the wrong direction from my home - are related.

CMR: It felt like when the Being of Light visited me. That time it also felt like no time had elapsed but clocks dont'lie! And, ever since I saw the Being of Light I've felt there's a mission I should be doing. I often wonder if I am supposed to share my visit.
