Ok so the time was probably about 21.20 GMT. I have just been at my friends house and we sat in his backyard playing cards and had a couple of beers
as the sun went down.
It was dark at the time of my sighting. I have had a feeling all night of there being something to look out for and i had said this to my friend.
I will give you a brief overview of my surroundings first. We live in a row of two terraced streets with the view up the street being Almost exactly
East and obviously down being west. I was looking towards my house which is East and saw the following..
There were two red lights pulsing flying at the same speed paralled but diagonal. They were about 4 inches apart at arms length (this gives you an
idea of distance in the sky hopefully). One was above the other diagonally. If you imagine the red light on a regular plane they were about the size
of that but there were no flashing beacons of any kind and there was no aircraft noise. I live in busy airspace and after i had watched many planes
fly over and all of the had flashing lights and made a noise.
I pointed out to my mate but by the time he finally saw them, only the top light was visible over the adjacent rooves. It was so frustrating! He made
fun of me because i really believed it was something else and hes a great skeptic
I watched these lights for a good 10-15 seconds as the
crossed form the roves on our side to theopposite rooves and went out of sight.
I saw what i think was probably a satellite travelling at a 90deg angle eastwards about 10 seconds after. I dont actually believe it was a satellite
as im sure when i started looking at it , it was stationaery.
What i need from you guys is confirmation that any plane whether commercial or military, HAS to have flashing beacons over British airspace.
I dont know if these two separate lights were separate craft or belonged to the same one.. if it was on each side of a single craft it must have been
huge (a hundred feet or so).
I only had my LG camera fone on me so didnt get any photos as it is useless in the dark.
I got really excited when i saw of another sighting in norway at almost exacly the same time...
If needed i will try and visually represent what i saw and scan it.
