Bright Flashing Object Over Birstall Leicester UK

Date: November 10, 2010
Time: 1:00am – it’s 2:06am now and can still see it.

Location of Sighting: Birstall Leicester UK.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 2
Shape of Objects: Appeared to be lights.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Both me and my boyfriend witnessed what appeared to be a very bright shining star. We were standing at the rear of his house looking southeast, towards Leicester. We kept looking at it, as it was considerably brighter than any star we could see (It is a very clear night with not much cloud cover.)

As we looked at it, we noticed it appeared to be almost flashing with a large spectrum of colour, mainly blue, red and white. We thought this was odd, so kept looking at it, and it seemed to get bigger and the lights we could see shining were not shining in a pattern, they would flash faster and slower.

Also this object we could see in the sky appeared to move considerably, almost like it was swinging, moving left to right and also up and down, but in a small area, not all across the sky. It is now 1.40am, and as I have gone out to check on it, we have noticed a small red flashing light which was next to the object when I first went out to check.

It wasn't there before I came into write this email. In a matter of seconds, this red flashing light that was next to the flashing object high in the sky has descended quickly and also is not flashing in any kind of pattern, but it is just one red light. At around approximately 1.25am the original flashing object shrunk in size, now it looks almost like any other star, but it is still flashing and it is still there.

Also, me and my boyfriend have seen what appears to be a shooting star out of the corner of our eyes on three occasions whilst looking at this object. It shot at such a speed that when you move your eyes to look at it, it has gone. Neither me or my boyfriend can explain it, the original object has transformed in it’s size and the amount of light it has been emitting has dropped.

When it was at its brightest, with the lights of different colours shining strong, it almost looked as if there was something below it, the light was casting a shadow. It’s difficult to describe, but it kind of resembled what you see at an eclipse of the sun, but obviously on a smaller scale. It is 2:07am now and the original object can still be seen, but is much smaller than it became at approximately 1:10am.
