Over the past 5 days, barring last night as the cloud cover prohibited any star gazing, I have been seeing more and more strange lights in the sky! I dont profess to be any sort of expert on U.F.O's,Aircraft or Natural phenomena so was wondering if anyone could shed any light on what I've been seeing or give any tips on how I might be able to capture these on film or photograph.I have tried with my camera phone and 5 megapixel digital camera and cant get anything other than a blurry light on the digital and just blackness on the phone. I know it may be hard to say what Im seeing from just my reports but there maybe some detail I mention which makes it an aeroplane at high altitude or a shooting star etc. Anyway, what I am noticing look very similair to stars in size and colour,they move either really slowly or very fast. They nearly always stay in a straight line however one did arc slightly and another seemed to have a smaller (for want of a better word)star arc away from the front of it. Me and my g/f's brother saw 5 of these in a 25 minute period on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning,I personally had seen 2 on Sunday and 3 on Monday and just the 1 on Saturday.Now I must admit that the whole paranormal/ufo thing fascinates me and I do seem to have a lot of things associated with these fields occur in my life so I sometimes wonder whether I can be truly objective in my judgement and whether or not I sometimes make something out of nothing because Im wanting things to happen. At least Im aware of this,so having the future brother in law there on one of the nights when there was most activity really helped me put things in perspective and made me aware not everything I was seeing was a 'spaceship'.On that same night we witnessed a very bright white ball move from west to east and a quik pace and disappear behind cloud cover.On the Saturday I saw a flash of light which then dimmed, went to nothing and then repeated the pattern identically over and over again at about 5 second intervals going in a 45 degree angle from high up in the north sky to low down in the west! It seems unusual to have all this in the space of a few days,as I've only seen the odd things before. I wondered if anyone else has seen anything in the same area? I hope that from past star gazing experiences that I can distinguish between planes,helicopters,shooting stars and the like as the things I saw didnt bear any resemblance to the aforementioned. Please feel free to ask for any more Info,I'll provide what I can,and will try again with my camera if anyone can offer tips for that.
