I was on holiday last week in a rural part of Wales, UK, and I was able to see the stars much better than I normally can (I live in a city in
England). I gazed up in simple admiration of the firmament, and as soon as I did, there suddenly appeared - directly above my head at high altitude
in a clear part of the sky (it was mainly clear all over) - a bright orange flash which dimmed into an 'orange star' and proceeded to track forwards
across the backdrop of the stars. I would have put it down to satellite, but another one had appeared at the exact same moment about a hands'
breadth in front of it at exactly the same time, but without the flash. They proceeded to track an elongated curve from North to South West before
disappearing behind some high altitude cloud. There was an element of acceleration involved at one point, but they stayed equidistant so I presume
they were operating in tandem. The stars remained visible in between them, so it was two separate objects. Bizarrely, I got the sense that they had
been waiting for me to look directly up before appearing - though the mind plays funny tricks sometimes.
After they disappeared (whole thing was around thirty seconds, but the distance covered was significant), I observed some ordinary aeroplanes coming
across from East to West, on slightly different flight paths but basically heading West to the Irish Sea, perhaps then to proceed over Ireland to the
Atlantic. These had the typical light array of blue, red and white. What I saw prior moved much quicker than the aeroplanes, and seemed to be at a
similar altitude, perhaps higher.
I believe in 'genuine UFOs', and also in experimental aircraft, so I guess it could have been either. And no, it wasn't Chinese lanterns - these
things were locked in formation and following a defined yet non-linear flight path, equidistant from each other, not flickering but with a single
solid 'starlight'. If they'd have sat still in the sky they'd have been mistaken for stars - if they'd orbited in a strict linear fashion I'd
have called them satellites; if they'd have flickered, strayed from each other, seemed lower or moved as though pushed by the wind I'd have called
them Chinese lanterns.
They did none, so I called them UAOs - Unidentifiable Aerial Objects. I smiled to myself, momentarily intrigued - before going back inside and having
a cup of tea. I didn't bother making a specific post earlier as the usual debunking would have been rolled out. I know exactly what I saw, but
cannot adequately explain it. Despite being unable to identify the tech, it was tech nonetheless.
The times we live in are curious - yet I feel a lot of this has been going on for a very long time.
