Report:

At around 22h00 my wife and I were sitting on our balcony for a last cigarette before turning in, when she noticed a slowly-pulsating light to the North of us, above the ridge-line of a hill-line that we stay near. When I finally managed to pick it out, I noted that it was clearly above the ridge-line of the hill.

After a minute or so, I fired up my phone’s camera to film this light. I braced on the handrail of the balcony so that there wouldn’t be any video shaking as is too often in videos of such things.

while filming, I could make out a second object to the left of the first, but only on the phone screen and not visually. there also seemed to be a third, above the second light, also only visible on the phone’s screen.

The objects seemed to be moving in a vertical fashion at first (they moved slowly upwards at about the same rate as a star would), but then stopped, and moved down again (counter to the movement of stars) until they stopped just above the ridge line. it was at this point that I started filming, hoping for some more motion from them. Unfortunately they hung motionless in the air for the next 15 minutes before disappearing.

I managed to film approximately 8-9 minutes of it, but my phone unfortunately ran out of storage space before the end of the sighting. Also, the footage doesn’t show much beyond street lights and the lights/objects above.

Tonight (the following evening, I observed the same location to confirm that it wasn’t a normal light that we haven’t noticed before; there are no lights that could account for what was observed.

I can supply further info if requested, but do not want to upload the video unless requested due to size and time constraints (1.2gb file size).

Not sure what this was. I seemed to be the only one looking at it. I was in the traffic on William Nicol and to my right I saw something that looked like it was falling out of the sky. Maybe its space junk? It had a trail behind it like planes sometimes leave. It slowly fell as I lost it behind a billboard and I managed to get pics and a video once I passed the billboard. Its the tiny white spec on the left of the tree.

UFO in night sky

Report:

I took photos of the night sky for a time-lapse video. When reviewing the photos I found an object moving in a straight line. At first I thought it was a meteorite but it can’t be because it took about 30 minutes from the first photo to the last in the sequence. I uploaded a video of it on YouTube. https://youtu.be/AfW5VaYYQ1Q

I have the original RAW files to prove it was unaltered.

I was out star gazing with my Nikon 10×42 when I saw this similar looking plane travelling North East. It was much higher than the previous sighting but had that characteristic upside down ‘V’ signature of lights.
