Looks like its coming from Liverpool.

We in Seacombe, spotted two strange lights too. First spotted at around 1830hrs. Yes, appears to originate from Liverpool-Echo Arena??

Lately there has also been a 'spot light' shining over from the Stanley Dock area. Proper bright. Wonder what that is about? I assumed there is filming going on- im sure i read on here about at least three films being filmed, in Liverpool?

It comes from a night club up by the city fm tower every weekend and when somethink is going on. the penguins was at Liverpool one ther were reindeers also. It was for the ice ring , ski slope, and Santa's grotto Opening get over and check it out, great fun for everyone. there's also a real ice bar and many more.

If anyone is really concerned about these strange alien lights I suggest they play Slim Whitman recordings at high volume.
