Ok, ok! I know you need a certain amount of posts to even begin a thread, and maybe one day I'll get to that stage! But, I was just outside having a smoke and as I always do was looking up at the sky. I noticed a light, which I assumed was a star. It was incredibly bright and yet was not flickering like the others.

I kept my eye on it, thinking "I've never seen a star that bright, in that general direction at this time of year..?". Kept watching it then it started to move, first towards the east, then it stopped and went on a perfect right angle towards north for a little bit- that's when I got confused as it seemed to get faster then slow right down. Then suddenly it went back the almost exact way it came!
Then, as if a light was turned off, it vanished! I've seen a thousand of these threads and most of the replies will be "have any evidence..?!"- well I don't. But, I was just wondering if anyone in the area saw the same thing?

This isn't the first time I've seen something like this in this area. About a year ago I was out the back around 10pm and I saw three red/orange light in the sky. They were moving around, made a perfect, equal sided triangle then went in opposite directions. That's what made me start lurking ATS. Then I decided to join as I thought "one day, maybe I'll see something like this again and need to report it asap!".

Well, there you go. Just thought I'd put it out there!

Not saying it was generally Aliens or anything. It was an UFO- unidentified flying object.

Mind you, I wish it was Aliens!

welcome to ATS.

You do realize you have the 20 posts so you can make a thread right???

This is the introduction can post in other forums more appropriate ie grey area/aliens & UFO etc.

Just wondering if any of your neighbors have seen anything or if there has been anything on your local news. Also have you noticed extra police presence in the area?

To be honest, there was a helicopter flying overhead for a little bit before this happened, but I'm not entirely convinced that it was police. But then again, what other helicopters fly around? :/ No one in my area is rich enough to own their own
I live in suburbia, so I'm guessing others may have seen it! That's why I came on here to see if anyone else could verify what I saw! It's quite windy here tonight though, so maybe it wasn't a helicopter I heard?

Yeah, it's actually quite windy here too! Which again makes me think no to a helicopter or plane. And haven't the airports been closed down due to the volcanic ash from the volcano? So, it couldn't have been a plane?

Anyone else have any plausible suggestions? I'm going to completely rule out Chinese lantern, as there is no way the candle would stay alight in windy conditions like this...!

I believe in alien and man controlled advanced technology so I've got my tin foil hat on.

Yeah, I agree. I've been looking into the Nazi Bell and things like that lately and I wonder how many UFO sightings could be accounted for either experimental gov projects or just man made secret flying devices.

I can also, 100% positively, tell you that some of the things I've seen with my own eyes have not been man made- I'm 21, not crazy, have a normal office job and have never touched drugs! Some things are just un-explainable, but hopefully, one day soon, all will come to light
