Chinese lanterns, swamp gas, youre an idiot, liar or both. Sadly, the dry skeptic, trigger happy response, while understandable, is what has caused a decline in these types of posts in the past years. Sadly, the political, warmongering threads have been on a rise.
Ats, why u no go back to what u were?
Not directed at you specifically, reficul, I pushed the wrong reply button. Apologies.edit on 18-2-2012 by Snoopy1978 because: (no reason given)
We were commenting that it was probably Venus though it appeared to be much brighter, when I made my first error as an observer; I said that the object seemed to be inside the Earth atmosphere. This is common when you look at Venus but it conditioned my reasoning for what came after. We were following the road in the image (the arrow shows the direction of the sighting and the circles show bridges that were closed: the reason why we were doing that road), having the object in sight when all of a sudden, the object became much brighter (10 times or more what it was before). My first reaction was “that can’t be Venus” and the idea that it was inside the atmosphere cemented. After 5 or 10 seconds, the light dimmed out and 2 lights flashing quickly side-by-side one at a time became visible. This last for a few seconds and then disappeared. Definitely that was not Venus and I quickly classified that as an UFO.
