...well its unidentified so it must be.
(Just a note, I spent the lst 15 mins typing this thread up only to somehow be logged out when I clicked "post" and lost the lot...not happy lol. I
will try and make sure I dont miss anything out.)
I wasnt sure whether to post this or not, and its pretty minor and I dont have any pics/videos - all I had to hand was my camera phone and the camera
isnt good enough. Ive decided to post it though as I cannot come up with a reasonable explanation on my own.
Im in Southern England, and the last week of August, early hours of Friday morning (2am ish) I could not sleep. I was laying, looking out the window
as I usually do when I cant sleep. My bed is parrallel to the window, and I have the curtains back and windows open at this time of year. So my view
is basically this -
Can just about make out there are some clouds in the sky, but nothing major. Then suddenly I see what I assume to be a star, just "appear" from
nowhere. Thought nothing of it as was thinking a cloud just moved and now its visible. I was proven wrong when this "star" started moving in a
vertical direction through the sky, rather slowly. I sat up and made sure I wasnt seeing things, but there it was, going up. Then it disappeared, and
it didnt reappear. So something like this -
Now there is an airport about half hour's drive away, but Ive been here enoguh years to know an aeroplane on sight, and also what flight paths they
use. They only ever go in these directions across the sky (basically "in line" with my house). They dont fly over my house in any way.
Even if you consider maybe it was a plane for some reason going in a totally "foreign" direction, it would have to be literally going straight up,
which planes just dont do.
So its not a star, and its not a plane, or any other kind of aircraft I'm familair with - so does anyone have any explanation, even if its something
simple I've overlooked?
I hope someone finds this of interest, like I say its not overly interesting just something I can't explain. Any questions and I'll do my best to
answer them. Oh, and sorry for the dodgy drawings!
