I was watching a documentary about a case in Scotland. The guy was convinced they were extra-terrestrial lights because they seemed to hover. Turns out he is under the approach to a major airport and he was seeing the aircraft headlamps coming directly towards him which made the light appear to hover. The first time you see aircraft headlamps it is a bit weird - you think of headlamps as being for cars, not planes (after they have runway lights, right?).

Some "coloured lights in the sky" caused lots of oldsters in a block of flats to phone the radio about "spaceships". The lights were spotlights from a disco in town that shines them into the sky to make patterns.
