Could we have a solution to the mystery of the blinking UFO's in Richmond's Fan District Sunday? A little earlier in the evening, roughly 80 large "wish lanterns" were released into the air during the wedding ceremony of Elliott and Jessica Norman at the Dominion Club off Nuckols Road in Glen Allen.

I think at this point the people who try to coalesce these things into conventional explanations are the ones who are nuts. Lets all ignore the fact that they were rotating for 4.5 hours in a well held geometric pattern of a triangle, which most airborne lanterns clearly are capable of.

Funny how they go from speculating, to just outright saying yes these were wish lanterns. I don't think the public would be ready for any type of disclosure, and the media knows that, hence them trying to put out all these fires. That news report was silly, but I understand their agenda.

First multiple sightings in China and now multiple ones in the US - New York, El Paso, Richmond. Looks like the aliens are targeting the two largest economies. Maybe they think it is time for the truth to come out. It is the US military/intelligence community that does not want the truth about advanced aliens visiting from outer space to be revealed, since that would undermine US military and economic dominance of the world. This elaborate coverup has been going on for almost 60 years. See www.ufocoverup.org for more info

And the TR-3B is a piece o' crap. Cramped, 80's technology. Found a commodore 64 in the game room! The guys back home are taking bets on their dead pool we aren't gonna make it back from Earth. Damn budget cuts.

Jason Paige of Celebrity Radio DJs was the DJ for this weddings reception on Sunday. He has some cool video of the lantern release on his FB page. Read what Jason posted on his FB page:
Jason Paige: Here is the video I shot during the wish lantern release at the wedding I played on Sunday with Elliot and Jessica Norman.
Jason Paige: Another video from the "Wish Lantern" release from Elliot and Jessica Norman's reception at the Dominion Club on Sunday! You may have seen them on Channel 6 news tonight debunking all the UFO stories from the Fan on Sunday night.
Jason Paige: As the crowd was setting off the wish lanterns on Sunday night at my wedding gig at the Dominion Club. I distinctly remember making the comment, "People are going to be seeing UFO's tonight" well.

This reporter, Mark is a complete tool. Not just for this report...

These lights in the sky were not these wish lanterns, but something else completely explainable to be certain.

C'mon really? Have you seen this video? UFO activity has sky rocketed in the last two weeks, and they have all been very simular sightings. All we hear is that its either balloons, skydivers with flares, or lanterns in the sky. This has been complete BS

Utter bull. This was an actual UFO (alien) spacecraft - and every time a story like this happens they come up with some bullcrap answer (see Phoenix Lights)

These lanterns are orange compared to the blue colored UFO's.

I know individuals who have been given a littering citation for throwing a lit cigarette on the ground.

Why is it that you are aloud to release 80 flaming objects into the sky and casually admit to it on television, with no repercussions?

Sure, sending lit oil lamps off into the sky to land lord knows where in the middle of a drought. That's a fantastic idea!
