Ok, I wasnt going to say anything, but here goes.
Last night I went outside to put some rubbish out, it was a beautiful clear night sky, Milky way dazzling as usual.
As I always have a look for Satellites etc, I just happened to be looking in the right direction when I saw a "Phenomenon".
Looking South, about 40 degrees, I saw a flash of light, but it wasnt a flash.
Before my eyes I saw an "Orb" just appear in the sky the size of a star, BUT quickly grew in size to what I can only describe as twice as large as
Venus when shes bright, or maybe even a 1/4 size of the full moon, then in the same instant, it reduced in size and disappeared.
This all happened in maybe 1- 1.5 seconds....very quickly but enough time to be noted and seen. the light was a yellow orange colour...did not move,
or sped off, or act like a satellite, or meteor or anything.
As usual I stayed out for 10 minutes or so...no planes, Helicopters etc etc.
It was just there, then it was gone....and it Must have Been Immense in size (compared to ordinary space junk). I thought It may have been a revolving
satellite, reflecting the Sun, but it didnt move, didnt not appear again in any direction.....
I am not claiming ET or a UFO or Secret space vehicle....It was just another unexplained "Phenomenon"
Definitely not a meteor shower, but impressive none the less.
By the way, I have seen Flashes, which are Meteors etc....this was'nt a flash, but a sustained, growing light, then fade in a very short
time........As far as my knowledge extends, it could have even been a SuperNova, that happened Millions/Billions or years ago, that I just happened to
be looking at the right time, at the right part of the night sky. Perhaps I should buy a lottery ticket.
Either way, Im not loosing any sleep over it
