I'm not one for making threads and I tend to just go-along-to-get-along with the
many threads that appear here. I have my own view on 'what's out there', I'm not
one for beliefs in Galactic Feds and an Alien/Human Government agenda.
That said, we're all entitled to our views and when I give my account of what
occurred... (don't worry, it won't take long!)... on Saturday evening, I know that
many here will indicate other possibilties of what was in the cloud-filled night sky
One of the reasons I have put this thread up -apart from obviously logging another
possible sighting, is to show how words can make an account 'lean' towards the
writer's belief and I'll wager a fair account may be impossible to give.
Please forgive the way I write, I enjoy creative writing and I believe that a reader
should walk through a story at a steady pace and enjoy that walk.
So as the pancake make-up-daubed Joker says in 'Dark Knight'
"And... here... we... go! "
10.20pm - GMT, Saturday 27th August 2011.
I was sat in my conservatory during a light rainfall and watching a TV movie called
'Inception' starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The night sky was full of rain clouds and it seemed
the bad weather was set in for the evening.
Then looking South-East of my house, I saw two stationary lights in the night sky... I would
estimate the illuminous objects were roughly the size of a 1/2 inch gap between finger and
thumb -when one's arm is fully outstretched.
Keeping that outstretched and pointing with the index finger, if I put that finger in the centre
of the distance between the lights, I would estimate they were 16 inches apart.
How high...? raise that outstretched arm so the limb comes from the shoulder and your bicep
is beside your eye, that's the best I can do.
Then from the South, another could be seen -as I stepped outside and saw a wider view of
the sky, the rain was just the odd drop now and the street lighting made the low cloud bellies
behind the lights -a dirty yellow.
The lights had now formed a triangle and I know from being a ATS member, a triangle-shape
is a regular shape that's reported these days. The two original lights were in-line on a North-East
direction and the third was... (using the 'arm' technique)... 9 inches from the nearest of the
The three lights travelled in a South-East direction and at the same speed -which I estimate
around 30 mph.
There was no solid shape between the lights, the street-lit clouds showed no shape between
IF I had re-entered the house then to grab my camera, then my mind would of wanted to convince
me that this triangle shape... the way it lined-up, the 'equal-like' way they lined up and the fact
that the lights moved at one, could only be of an intelligent design.
Then I glanced at the tops of some trees to the South (my right) and saw two more lights floating
towards the 'triangle-three' and guessed at what i was viewing... Sky lanterns!
I raced inside, grabbed my camera (the memory-card was full and I needed my son to dump some
recent holiday pics!)... and then attempted to record the night scene.
I'm not sure yet, how or if -I got anything filmed, the light pollution around here is bad and later,
I couldn't seem to open the damn things on my computer!
Then a sixth and seventh light appeared from the tops of said tree-tops and as I watched another
five showed in no apparent organised order.
That was it... they drifted off in the same direction and roughly, the same speed and at no time,
did I get any strange feelings that they were anything above the norm.
I must admit, I had arrived at my conclusion of what the objects were and before the last light
went out of sight, I went inside to watch the rest of the movie!
My wife was excited... not because I am a Boy In A Dress and not because Leonardo was
outwitting his 'memory-wife' but because she automatically thought that they were strange and exotic.
After all, it was a grey-rainy night and these lights (a flap -she called them) looked like they were waiting
and forming shapes.
Who knows -she commented later, they may have been trying to spell a word or something?!
"Then why flicker their illumination?" I asked and she just shrugged.
I can't guarrantee these lights were Chinese Sky Lanterns, but a level-headed assumption indicates
Now... I gave (roughly) information of size, distance and speed, I also reported how I perceived the
objects, it'll be interesting to see if any thrust and parry of views come here.
what do you think?
