Their unison of movement

In 1866, lights seen against the sky were reported on the coast of England, around Durham. As reported in the London Times, Jan. 8, 1866, an inquiry was launched, headed by Admiral Collinson. “The mysterious lights,” as they were described, were “considerably elevated above the ground.” No conclusion was reached. As Fort said, the ‘false lights of Durham’ were “unaffected by the investigation.”
