I know what the lights and silent fireballs were above Fenland on New Year’s Eve

WHAT were the lights? I saw the silent fireballs!

In reply to the above questions dated Friday January 7 - I also saw these at just past midnight on New Years Eve and my dad thought they were UFO’s - but I can tell you that they were in fact a lot of Chinese lanterns being set off for the NEW YEAR.
