About a year ago, an old chap from up my street I chat to when chancing upon him around my area told me about star-like object(s) that he's noticed
in the sky at night. He, Malcolm, had added that they flash blue, red and white and "shoot pink stuff out" and that you could see all this through
Thinking it to be some trick caused my the medium of glass, I'd dismissed this, until recently.
In recent years I've been, as a whole, way too distracted by material things to care for looking up at the stars, but more recently when bored I took
the time to do so and lo: as Malcolm described; a star-like object flashing blue, red and white. It seemed at first stationary, and there was no pink
Often planes (and helicopters) do fly over my field of view and yes, the planes have the respective alternating colored lights. This was different and
most distinguishable though. What I was seeing didn't appear to move at first, but would veer very slightly at first in one direction and another,
generally returning to to its 'original' position.
As I've continued to 'check' on such objects- I've noticed others, less prominent- one night here and there, I've observed with and without
glasses, more striking 'movements exhibited by these things.' Sharp, sudden movements, and quickly appearing and disappearing lines of light have
appeared around the objects- not really being 'shot out' to my perception, but there all the same. Another time, while looking at one of the more
prominent 'star-like' objects I had an almost certain feeling that it was 'getting closer.' I do not believe this was my eyes focusing as it was
not the same as with looking continually at a similarly sized star.
So no, I'm hereby respectfully dissenting from the view that they could be aeroplanes or the like.
I'm left with the almost certain assertion that the more I engage in observing these UFOs- what else could you call them when their behavior is not
uniform with known celestial or flying objects- the more they will behave in inexplicable ways...
I may also add quite adamantly that I'm really one of the last to 'believe' in the traditional concept of 'UFO's or 'aliens' etc and that there
is only one 'Sirius' in one place to my knowledge, so if I may leave this open to further discussion, then that'd be cool.
