Hi there. I also live in the Brighton area and have seen these flashes in the night sky. Last Tuesday I saw two shooting stars late at night from my
garden. I was surprised at first as I don’t think I have seen a shooting star from my house before; let alone two. I get a good view of the stars at
night but the city’s lights block out a lot of the clarity.
When I saw the first one I was very surprised and wasn’t 100% Sure that I saw it. The second one (about an hour or so after the first one), was very
bright and vivid. It was exceptionally bright, right in my clear vision, as it shot through the sky and disappeared.
However, I do think that they were shooting stars. As much as I would have liked them to be something else, there is not enough evidence for me to
believe that the two brief flashes I saw were anything more than shooting stars.
Just glad to hear that other people have seen them too.
