Some people offered an explanation for the source of the light.

One person speculated on Twitter: “Strange lights in the sky in North West London being caused by orange light being shone on the Wembley Stadium pitch to mimic daylight to keep the grass in top condition”

Another person agreed: “Apparently – it’s grow lights to help the grass in Wembley Stadium (seriously)”

A third said: “It’s the light in Wembley Stadium for treating the grass.”
