I live about 5 miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne in North East, England.
noticed an unusally bright "star" that seemed very low in the sky. I thought it odd that such a bright star was so low in the sky, and continued to stare at it.
I watched as the bright white "star" turned completely blue, then back to white.
I thought it might be an aircraft, but then realised that it was completely stationary.
It then turned completely red, and back to white again. It did this colour change three times in all. Each time from pure white, to blue, to red, then back to white.
Because I was staring so intently, on the thrid time I could actually see the colour changing progressively from left to right, as if a coloured lens was being passed over it.
I assume that clouds must have obscured it from my view, because it sure didn't zoom off as most reported UFOs do. I never saw it again that night, nor since.
I was not drinking nor on any type of drug, and have no understanding of what I witnessed. There may have been a perfectly good explanation for this phenomenon, and I'm wondering if anyone here could shed some light on this for me.
what made them seem more than just normal aircraft flying in formation at night to you? I have seen military planes do this. Did they do anything unusual?

One night I was walking home in the country of Pennsylvania
which was near Interstate 90. Suddenly, the lights over the
interstate began to go out, one by one and I looked up in
the sky and saw what appeared to be a formation of ufos
flying in a triangular pattern. There must've been at least 10
of them. All of the lights were going out as they were passing
by the interstate, which their flight pattern paralled.
When I got home I called the state highway department to
report the light outages. They said they had no reports of any
power outages on the interstate.
Well, I saw it with my own eyes!

I have had 2 UFO sightings in my life.
The first was on a midsummer night over 15 years ago.
I was looking out my bedroom window into the night sky and something caught my eye. Very high up in the sky there was something with multiple colors moving in the sky. the colors were like a blended rainbow comet.
It moved south then suddenly reversed north and then reversed to south again then it went out of site.
this all happened very quickly. As an adult three things stand out as odd to me.
1. the distance this thing was from the earth.
2. The colors of the lights.
3. the immediate and rapid course changes stopping on a dime and resuming speed almost instantly. The laws of inertia would make this impossible on a human.
The second sighting was at a drive in theatre just 5 years ago. My husband and I took the kids out for a movie as we often did at the drive in and that night we had my young cousins with us as well. Sometime mid film out of the corner of my eye I noticed a golden glow and turned just in time to see a golden sphere about 5ft tall pass our van hovering just a foot or so above the ground. Whatever it was, it was glowing and incredibly fast. it took off towards the sky shortly after passing our van. Everyone in our van saw it and all pretty much shouted at once. "what was that?"
Of course I doubt we will ever know.
