Walking along the pier we noticed a very bright round whitish/orange light on the horizon over the bay towards the Gordons Bay side (looking east from the end of the pier). I assumed it was Venus, although too bright I thought, but after about 15 minutes or more it suddenly became very bright and started to move left slowly and soundlessly towards the mountain. It changed in brightness and did flash sometimes, also dipping down quite low.
It then changed direction and began moving back towards its first location over the Bay where it remained stationary but very bright for another 10 minutes or so (when I took the video) Suddenly 2 more of the same lights appeared out of nowhere, just as bright over the side of the mountain.(vaguely visible on the video) The one stayed still and the other started to move out toward the Bay where it disappeared at cloud level.
Other people watching the lights suggested that it was air traffic circling while coming in to land or lights on Sir Lowry’s Pass (?) I’d like to hear opinion’s on these theories please? Did anyone else see them?
