What was the date and time you saw this?
Not sure of the exact date, a saturday, 9pm, Early August/Late July '08
Could you approximate the start and end positions of at least one object, ie height above horizon in degrees, and what direction in degrees (0=north,
180=south, and so on...)?
We first saw it at about 160 degrees, we were looking straight up and it came from the horizon over our heads. they went from pretty much over our
heads and then off into the horizon gradually fading away but they didn't just vanish, they disappeared in the same fashion a plane does, getting
smaller and smaller as they get closer to the horizon.
Did the brightness of the objects change at all?
good question, the lights were very bright red/orange, they moved so fast my friend who saw them first as they went over his head saw them as lines
rather than dots, I had a better view because I wasn't look directly up, I saw them as bright red dots that didn't change in brightness/colour at
How long did you see them for?
We must have seen them from one end of the horizon to the other in a speed between a plane and a meteor/comet. moving fast, maybe 10 seconds from
south to north, maybe slightly longer.
Did they appear/disappear at the same time?
We never saw them 'appear' they went over our heads but when they disappeared they faded out quite slowly as if fading into the distance rather than
suddenly vanishing, yes they disappeared at roughly the same time but they didn't vanish like comets/meteors do.
Was there a "formation" of some kind?
I'd say there was a formation, I remember there being approx. 5 lights, all were moving in a parallel the WHOLE time, they wobbled a bit but the
weird part was 2 on the left carried on straight, the end 3 on the right seemed to move around a bit with each other, the 3 moved JUST like birds do
when they are in formation, swapping positions quite quickly in a kind of dance is the best description.
In terms of the size, they weren't as bright as plane lights but they seemed to be warm all over, like one solid colour to them. They were much
bigger lights than stars or comets. I remember saying that they were an intermediate between plane lights and comets/stars/satellites in size.
I hope that helps. I can probably tell you more but it's better if you ask me more questions. Cheers c.h.u.d.
