Globes orange light were seen floating over the Lake Rotoroa area in Hamilton on Thursday evening, making two Hamilton residents wonder if UFOs do really exist.
David Perfect wandered outside about 9.15pm on the clear, still evening, and two round balls of bright orange light caught his attention.
A local astronomer said they may have been Chinese lanterns, like those recently released in Te Awamutu.

But whatever they were, their appearance was surreal for Mr Perfect, who had never seen anything like it before.
The fingernail-sized lights appeared to move towards him ''really high up in the atmosphere,'' following the same path.
They were sharing the sky with aeroplanes, identifiable due to their flashing lights and engine noise, but no sound came from the mysterious balls of light.
''Either they were just so incredibly high up or... who knows?''
