Major UFO sighting Bangor, Northern Ireland (on BBC news)

Myself and two of my friends each independently observed some very strange lights in the sky last night. Of course, by the time I got the camera set up they had disappeared, but I did get a look at them through the binoculars.

According to one of my friends there was originally 6 objects in the northern sky which slowly moved and faded away. I did not see these six. Not long after they returned in the south western sky, this time there was only three. They were distinctly orange in colour, about magnitude 0 in brightness. First of all they were in a line but then they slowly moved into a sort of L formation and then disappeared one at a time. Through the binoculars all that could be seen were three orange lights. Akin to the colour of a flame. The three lights covered an area of sky of about the width of the W of Cassiopeia. I've never seen anything like it in my life, truly strange.

The Bangor coastguard even reported it, it was seen by many people in the area! This is the Irish version of the phoenix lights.
