This has happened twice. The first time was about six months ago, and the second just today. During the first encounter, I was up at about 4am, and
for no reason in particular, looked out of a window of my home. I saw a big orange light in the sky. It was stationary and not twinkling.
Aircraft normally use this route, and I have watched lights like this approach my home from the horizon. The aircraft lights also appear as orange
stationary lights at first, but within a minute or two they get close enough to my home for me to view their twinkling blue and red lights. When the
aircraft get close enough for me to hear their engines, they make a left turn and continue on their journey. I have seen hundreds of aircraft behave
this way at night.
On this occasion however, the light remained stationary for the ten minutes or so I watched it. I then decided to have a look at the light with my
binoculars. But when I got my binoculars and came back to the window ( took me about half a minute ), the light had completely disappeared.
Today, I took my dog out for a walk at 9pm. I noticed the orange light again. It was also bright and stationary. Like the first time, it looked
slightly different from normal aircraft lights. I therefore watched it keenly. The sky was clear, and there were no clouds. I watched it for more than
five minutes. It did not budge from its place, and the light was steady, without any twinkling. My dog then spotted a cat or something, and lunged
forward. I was therefore distracted for a moment. When I looked back at the sky, the light had completely vanished - just like that.
Do aircraft turn off their lights for some reason at night ? Why was it that the light vanished when I stopped looking at it for a moment. I strongly
suspect that the objects were quite aware that I was studying it closely, and disappeared when the opportunity presented itself. It could be a UFO.
What do members think ?
