I think could be lights from a tower/mobile crane. There are many similar examples.
“With the fog we could not see anything so ran back down at which point they where nowhere to be seen.”
He ruled out helicopters as there was no noise or civilian aircraft as there were no flashing lights.
He said: “It couldn’t have been search lights shining up from the ground as we could clearly see the lights’ surface area getting wider as it shone down meaning the light source was in the sky.
“The sighting lasted around 30 minutes and I managed to take around four minutes of video.”
Tyler Glockner, who runs conspiracy theory YouTube channel Secureteam10, said in a new video about the sighting they were like the famous Phoenix Lights sighting above Arizona, Texas, in 1997.
Mr Glockner said: “This is something truly mysterious here and I cannot come up with an explanation.
“Just looking at it at face value there are multiple objects that are luminated.
Scott Brando is a UFO debunker who runs website ufoofinterest.org.
He said the lights and their movement showed that it was probably just the lights from a crane.
Mr Brando tweeted: “About the five mystery lights filmed above #Basingstoke, I think could be lights from a tower/mobile crane. There are many similar examples.
“There are many people who disagree with the possible explanation (lights from a crane), forgetting that misty conditions can cause misrepresentations.”
Grant Bruce agreed and posted on YouTube: “It moves like a cranes boom.”
Paul Taylor put an alternative theory on YouTube: “Not a UFO. This is just down the road from me. It’s a floodlight drone that is used for security purposes over AWE (A) Atomic Weapons Establishment, Aldermaston.
“Just a few miles from Basingstoke. It’s the most secure workplace in the whole of the UK.”
A third poster said: “That’s simple, a sky projector used in massive events, gas stations to attract attention. I see these everyday.”
Despite the possible explanations, Basingstoke has become something of a UFO hotspot with a series of mysterious light sightings.
In June 2008 witnesses claimed a fleet of 12 orange objects were seen in the night sky for half an hour.
And in mid 2012 numerous sightings of unusual flashing lights in the night sky were reported over Basingstoke.
In April 2016 Leandro Canetti, then 28, spotted four red, blinking lights in the sky as he finished a gym session near Basingstoke train station.
