No worries mate. It's a good story and looks pretty interesting. These don't come down the pipe so often.
I do like it when pilot reports come out they come across as very credible to me.
No more so than anyone else, really. Unless they go beyond saying that they saw something that they don't know what it was.

It is GOOD that pilots interpret unrecognizable lights in the sky as potentially threatening, better safe than sorry.

I dont suppose Meteors have to have a tail do they?
I was looking out my window on Sunday night, have clear unbroken sky views over the valley and a light was hauling ass directly overhead, i mean like meteor speed but no tail.
Impossible to tell the height in the dark but there was no sound, was at least 5 times the speed of an airliner and as they fly overhead during the day, you can always hear them. This thing must have been higher.
We also have F/A-18s north of here in Williamstown but I have been around jets most of my adult life and this wasnt one. Was just a constant single yellowish light.
