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).
