This is my first real topic and I usually wouldn't post things like this but this got me wondering as I have seen many lights in the sky at night
that I cannot identify but I have seen this twice now and it seems odd.
The first time I saw it was at about 11:30pm (GMT) so it was dark out, the moon was up in the south east and Jupiter was in a similar direction, I was
facing south west when I first saw it and was
. It looked south south east from me and was moving north east slowly and with no noise. When I first noticed it I had
thought it was Jupiter but as Jupiter was also visible and the object was moving, it looked just like a very bright star or a planet. I stopped for
only a little while and kept on walking.
The second time I saw it I was
around the same time at night again. This time I waited and watched it more closely, it was in the same place in the sky but this time the object
moved over head and I realised it was turning slowly towards the east, once again there was no sound.
I had a few ideas of what it could be, first I thought it might be a plane but due to the lack of sound it could only be a glider, I don't know how
common using such a plane is at night as landing might be odd no? The second idea is that it might be a satellite but the light seemed too bright, the
curve of the movement the second time I saw it and the speed seemed all too much for this to be the case.
I have some other possibly useful information, I am always seeing planes to the north west of where I saw the object, jets in fact, I can often hear
them at night and could hear them the second night when I passed back through the same place after the object passed (went to get some Chinese food).
Oh and I always see military hercules planes and both police and military helicopters, they seem to train over the field I was in.
As I have said I don't know what this was, maybe a glider, does anyone have any idea?
