March 2 (UPI) -- A viral video showing mysterious lights floating over Milwaukee in the early morning hours might have an unusual answer -- seagulls.
Footage filmed about 4:43 a.m. Tuesday by a WITI-TV tower camera shows a grouping of lights hovering in the sky over the city and appearing to move individually.
The WakeUp News crew on WITI-TV theorized the lights could be fireworks -- or, a bit more unlikely, aliens-- but another reporter for the station may have found the answer.
Amy DuPont said she was downtown at the time of the lights and captured video of a massive flock of seagulls flying near the Milwaukee County Courthouse. The station suggested the dots in the sky could be seagulls reflecting the light.
The mystery continued Wednesday, when the tower camera again captured a similar grouping of lights.
