Hi I've been lurking heer for a while and always have seveal daily visits to ATS, however i only joined today and this is my first actual post.
What prompted me to join today was what i saw in a public park not 15 minutes walk from where i live, in Manchester England.
At roughly 12:30 am i was in the park with a friend and was looking at the sky when i saw a light, similar in colour to that of a star moving across
the sky. It moved at a steady pace and had no flashing lights on it, nor did it give off any noise, we observed it for approximately one minute
before it was out of sight. I know it was NOT a plane, as it had no flashing lights and it ddint make a noise, and i beleive it was too high
It wasnt a shooting star as it moved too slow, and coincedentally about 10 minutes later I did see a shooting star, completely different to this
object I saw. My friend suggested a comet, but as i understand it comets take days to move across the sky like that, correct me if im wrong.
I did however come up with one possible idea as to what it may have been. Could it have been a satelite??
Any response to this is greatly appreciated, as Im still stunned by what I saw less than 2 hours ago.
Thank you in advace for any response.
