Strange Illuminated Cloud Observed Over Peterlee UK

Date: February 2, 2010
Time: 10:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Peterlee.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 0
Shape of Objects: Illuminated cloud.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: My friend and I were chatting in our local beer garden, which faces south. Around 22:00 my friend commented on a cloud which seemed to be lighted from the inside. We watched for some time as the cloud got brighter and brighter. We estimated the cloud to be just south of Hartlepool and it's length to be about 3 to 4 KM. We couldn't think what would make such a effect, we are both mountaineer instructors and are quite used to reading the sky for navigation and weather purposes.

This was not a cumulus cloud, and therefore not a lightning cloud, and the moon was not in sight that evening. The effect lasted about a minute and when it finished we only realized how bright the effect was, it was a white light that had a visible distance of over 20 miles, and it managed to illuminate a cloud that had 3 -4 km base. The light pulsed in a regular pattern. I wrote this 1 hour after witnessing the effect and am still amazed!
