This is my sighting from New Year's Day 2004.
At this time, my kids were young teens. We lived in a flat with a wonderful view right over the rooftops/treetops and straight over a bay. The other
side is full of broadcasting towers so there are flashing lights at the top of these towers, to be sure. But this day, 1 Jan, we noticed at around
5pm a very bright white light. It was situated precisely above two birch trees which were slightly taller than the rest. This light seemed to be a
few inches up from their tops. There was never normally any light there.
My kids and I aren't big on New Year's celebrations so we drank milk the whole evening and went to bed early. I make this point because I know
someone will bring it up at some point. So no, alcohol was definitely not part of the event.
So, it was cold out - maybe -20°C or so. No one out really. Silent and very bright day. Not a cloud in the sky. Being in the north though,
darkness descends early in the day. I looked out the window around 5pm, noticed it and commented to my kids that there was a funny light and to have
That light was there in the exact same spot for hours. Its only movement was to flash red and blue now and then. At around 10.30pm, it starts
flashing like mad and my daughter and I went to the window to look. After a few minutes, a diffuse white egg-shaped craft flew directly over the top
of our building and out to that light. We saw another one join its path as they reached that light. My daughter and I just stood there with our jaws
on the floor, as you can well imagine.
We finally gathered our wits enough to inform the other two and the light started to move very slowly to the right. None of us had noticed that there
was a long cloud that had formed at some point just there and the light weaved in and out of it for a while until it shot at top speed out the end of
the cloud and here we lost sight of it.
A few minutes later, the cloud was gone but the sky was full of aircraft landing from all directions, one after another. Mind you, this was
extraordinarily odd after midnight on then 2 Jan. But all sorts of a/c landing continuously for 20-30 mins thereafter.
This event recurred on 3 March that year and this time we had one of my colleagues from his home which faced the same direction. The only difference
then was that there was no egg-shaped craft. All other details were the same, the light was in precisely the same spot for hours until it left in the
heretofore unnoticed cloud.
That spring, starting in Apr-May, we would have the most extraordinary helicopter sounds for hours seemingly at random. It was as though the
helicopter was flying over and around our building continuously but we never once caught sight of any at any point. Our phone signals were jammed
frequently. We would get calls "from no one". We all had different numbers, naturally but there was no number calling, if you know what I mean.
It just said "Call". Strange when you consider that my youngest was then 7 yrs old. Who could have her number other than family?
So, there's my account of the lights. It was no jet. I was working with the militaries of two countries at that time and I was raised on military
