Monday night i went out in the back garden (Yorkshire, UK) to let the dog go for a pee, it was about 8.15, and as i stood waiting i looked up at the
sky, it was a cold night, and had been snowing on and off, and visibility was excellent, the stars looked beautiful, then i noticed an object that
looked like a regular star but it was moving across the sky in a straight line, so i called to my girlfriend to come have a look, she did, and said
'whats that?' at that moment, another star like object caught my eye that was also moving in a straight line, but in a different direction, i
pointed and said 'look another one', as we turned our attention to this other object, all of a sudden there was what i can only say was a very
bright flash that shot upwards, so fast my eyes couldnt stay trained on it, my g/f saw it too, we both were like 'whoa what the hell was that' my
mind started getting carried away thinking it was aliens and such.
Anyway after a while my g/f goes inside, cos she's a cold arse, but i stay watching, scanning the sky, then out the corner of my eye, another flash,
i turn and look to see a glowing object, with a reddish tinge, moving through the sky, this was a very brief sighting before it disappeared, this like
the other flash were different from the star like objects, they were bigger, the star objects i would say must have been in orbit, anyway i shouts my
girl again, and says you gotta keep looking tonight cos theres some freaky # going down out there.
So we watch, and watch.. and then there, another one the best sighting of all, this bright object hurtling through the sky in a straight line, but i
could see a trail coming from it, like smoke, i grabs my g/f head and tries to position it so she sees it 'look at that' i said, or words to that
effect, then like the others it disappeared she missed it, i was gutted for her, because this one was the best of all.
Anyway after seeing this last one it was a let down for me in a way, because it confirmed that what we must of been seeing was comets, or meteors?, im
still not sure, hence, why ive registered here to try and get some answers, i initially thought these things could have been ufo's, but im a rational
person, and im sure, like i say that these were comets or meteors, even so to see three in one night was still amazing.
Anyway what i want to know is what the star like objects are? are they sattelites?, i know there are a lot of them out there, and like i said, im
pretty sure they were in orbit/space, so any answers would be great.
And to all you ppl out there, watch the skies, because there are wonderful things going on up there, you just gotta be patient.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, i hope you all believe me, because i got to admit i been reading these forums for a while now, and i know
that its hard to believe some things, im just glad my girlfriend witnessed some of this with me.
