Flare sightings possibly ‘something atmospheric in nature’
Flares lighting up the Bermuda sky last night were possibly “something atmospheric in nature”, according to the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre (BMOC).
Police and BMOC both were alerted to the sightings around 7.10pm.
According to a BMOC spokesman, the Centre was notified of “suspected flares” seen between Church Bay and the Great Sound.
“After police attendance in a land unit and BMOC observation by RADAR and radio broadcasts requesting reports of any flare sightings, it was determined that the sighting reported was most likely not marine distress flares but possibly something atmospheric in nature,” the spokesman said.
“No further reports or sightings were received by 11.40pm and no further action was taken.”
