Hey everyone, welcome to my first thread ever !
Before i describe the sighting i want to get out of the way that there are no photos, no video.
I know that's a problem for a lot of people but there was no point in even trying to get any so sorry about that.
My partner and i were going out for dinner in the cool part of town, because we're cool. We dropped her car off in the alley next to her house and
kind of idled around in the way you do when you're in good company and no hurry. I was watching the sky, because that's something i always do, just
by default. I have a terrible habit of pointing out every light in the sky i notice and telling whoever i'm with that it's a UFO, and then having to
explain what it really is when they believe me.
So we were mooching around in Brunswick at about 8:45 in the evening when i saw a blinking light to the north, about the size, brightness, and colour
of a star. Before i'd even processed what i was looking at, my bad joke instincts had kicked in and i'd attracted my poor long suffering
girlfriend's attention in it's direction. Up to this point [maybe ~5 seconds since i'd noticed it] it was completely stationary and blinking in a
way that seemed random, but then it started to move and i forgot all about my jokes and started planning this thread.
I have no real way to describe properly how it moved - it almost flitted across the sky like some sort of celestial butterfly, only as it did so it
also jumped from place to place. None of the jumps were particularly large, and it somehow gave the impression that while it's path was meandering
and random-seeming, it just couldn't be bothered with actually travelling in a straight line at any point, preferring to just jump to the next
I'm aware that that sounds pretty strange. I've been heavily invested in UFOs and watching the sky for decades, and i've not really heard of
anything quite like this, much less seen. I had my phone in my hand at the time and i was ACHING to film it, but i know from past experience that my
phone wouldn't pick up a light as dim as a star anyway. As it was we lost sight of it after about ten seconds of dancing around, when it got too
close to the glow of a streetlight, and presumably from there disappeared behind the buildings.
I know it's highly unlikely anyone else saw this exact event [though if you did please please speak up]
but i am quite interested in whether anyone has seen anything similar at all
thank you for your indulgence, now let's get on with the "no pics it didn't happen"
