AFTER our story about the Welwyn Garden City man who couldn’t stop seeing UFOs, a Hatfield resident has sent us a series of snaps which show unexplained lights in the sky.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Photographer Jason Reeve took the dazzling pictures from outside his north-west-facing bedroom window, in Chantry Court, with a 20-minute exposure.

The images showed mysterious mushroom-shaped craft set against the starry night sky.

Fascinated Mr Reeve is desperate for people to try and explain what it was he photographed.

He said: “I was lying on [my] bed and I glanced out of my window, I saw an odd light in the sky.

“I am a photographer and I often photograph the night sky and I knew it looked different to anything I had seen before.

“I decided to set up my camera and photograph the object.

“I set up my Canon 60D and took a series of photos.

“The object appeared to be cone shaped very high up and not moving in any direction.”

He added: “After 20 minutes I looked at what I had captured and realised there were in fact four separate lights in the sky, but not visible to the naked eye.

“And they where also apparently static and not moving.

“The image shows a possible small trail behind the object, suggesting that the object had been moving, but in a completely different direction to everything else in the night sky.”

In the October 26 issue of the Welwyn Hatfield Times, we revealed how Knightsfield, Welwyn Garden City, resident Stephen Clementson, 55, was haunted by UFO sightings and other paranormal activity.

He has shot more than 80 videos of UFOs, mainly from his back garden, and uploaded them to video website YouTube.

  • Was the window open? Because what I am seeing, looks very much like a reflection on glass. But I wasn't there. It could be anything.

  • I'm not a photographic expert, Jason, but it seems to me that the "stalks" of your mushrooms all point back towards a common source, below the bottom of the frame. The mushrooms themselves look like typical "lens flares" caused by internal reflections within a compound lens. I'm not going to claim that that's THE explanation, but I think it's the most likely. Better luck next time! -- Don

  • Jason - a bit of a long shot but google ''red sprites'' and look at 'images' or wikipedia. There's a few possible similarities.

  • A 20 minute exposure and the supposed UFOs still look to be very faint in areas. That aside, isn't Mr Reeve lucky to have had them pose for him for 20 mins!

  • Aren't these just Sky Lanterns? http:en.wikipedia.orgwikiSky_lantern The are regularly let off near me, float slowly through the sky and if it's a still night, will appear to stay in one place.

  • With a 20 minute exposure, the stars would have been streaks, circling around the north star- unless he had a tripod that tracked the star movement. If he did, and the objects were stationary in relation to the earth- then they would have left streaks. Somethings not right.

  • A 20 minute exposure ? Sooo.... The light spots could be, more or less, absolutely anything at all really... Couldn't they ? Hey WHT readers, any of you could take a picture on even a low quality mobile phone that you could claim is a UFO so.... What are you all waiting for ? Get clicking, and send your pictures in to the editor ! (Sorry Mr. Editor).

  • As a photographer of many years, these seem to me to be lens flares. The lower of the two images shown is a classic lens flare shape. What makes this more likely is the statement that these lights "were not visible to the naked eye". This is exactly what would be expected; lens flares are not seen directly. The other item is that these were 20 minute exposures. Even using a standard focal length lens, anything in the sky would move 5 degrees during this time, which is 10 times the width of the full Moon. If an object stayed in the same position relative to the observer then that would suggest it was part of a fixed structure. I would like to know the focal length of the lens used and the aperture - which are vital in order to help interpret the images - and also his location, the direction the camera was pointing and weather conditions. Another question is why Mr Reeve was taking photos of things that he could not see.

  • My window was open and I saw the light in the sky with my eyes! It was faint, but bright enough for me notice it straight away!
