Myself and two other colleague spotted a red light flashing, on what seemed to an be aircraft. However the height, inconsistent flashing and silence made us think that it cannot be an Airplane / Helicopter, as well the object stopping in mid-air. We assume that it was a drone due to its erratic flying patterns, moving really fast across the sky, but its was really high up and behind / above clouds? What was most strange was it disappearing for a good few seconds and then reappearing a few meters at another place. I am not aware of any drone that is able to turn of the red LED light that is usually on a standard drone. Also as it started moving further away at a faster pace, The red flashing light changed into a white and more rapid flashing light and then it stopped and flashed Red once again. Then it vanished?

  1. Hi There, thank you for sharing this. Where about were you located and where were you facing?’sea side, mountain side? It could of been a drone, or it could of very well not been. In the case that it was not, ufo intelligence do not show themslves for no reason and the phenomenon is often acompanied with ‘strange’ coincidences or synchronicities. Did you experience anything else out of the unusual?

    Thanks for sharing

    • Hi Ashley

      Thanks for the follow up questions. However, before we jump to the ET explanation lets first eliminate all other possibilities.

  4. Hi reporter

    Thank you for the report and the follow up info.

    I would likely explain the object as a drone. A few reasons why.
    You say in the report that you and others “spotted a red light flashing…stopping in mid-air.” This, along with your observation of an erratic flight pattern would lead me to believe it was a drone.

    You also state that the object “was really high up and behind / above clouds? What was most strange was it disappearing for a good few seconds and then reappearing a few meters at another place.”

    The object being above/behind clouds make autokinesis a good explanation as to how the object disappeared and re-emerged at a different location.

    A good report though.

    If you still believe it to be something other than a drone feel free to reply. I have some other questions to ask before exploring other explanations.
