Hello to all,
Thanks for a great site by the way! Have joined in a bid to support what was seen here..
Letting the cat back in through my window at 10.13pm (yesterday now for UK),
I stuck my head upwards, as I do most nights. The light caught my eye as I struggled to get my binoculers focused on it
(annoying as I can easily aim and focus on the air traffic flying over where I am, the most easterly side of the UK ).
After a panicky focusing effort, I could see it had the intensity of a star, but progressed through the sky like a fast cargo plane?
I listened hard, I could hear the distinct sound of the wind turbine out front here, but the object seemed silent. There WAS the sound of another
aircraft in another area of the sky , I could not see it though..
There was no cloud cover until you looked further over the sea.
At this point I realized that I may have time to plug in the cam, switch it on etc before the object was obcured (maybe?) by the clouds
It was still sitting in front of the tv, plugged in (to playback " band-jam").
I managed to pull out the s-video lead to the TV and stretched myself and the short mains cable carefully towards the window AND
It was gone!
No way could it have shot into the clouds so quickly..they were to far off!
Can i just clarify that this happened to me
between 1013pm -1015pm UK time.
1. Surely that was moving to fast to be ISS!
2. I have seen this same object with a friend as we stood drinking and smoking outside a local pub here, about 3 months ago.
That night was very clear, it flew from west to east and continued over the sea...
I have put reminder in my fone to Be Ready! next Sunday, fingers crossed
