Two Bright Lights-Bridgend, Wales-1st October 2017

Location of Sighting: Bridgend, Wales
Date of Sighting: 1st October 2017
Time: 7.45pm
Witness Name: Dee
Witness Statement: Look out the window to see this two bright lights in the Sky. The only way I could describe these are like landing lights on a plane. Myself and my son watched these for briefly 1 minute before they disappeared behind the clouds. At first I thought maybe it was the moon behind the clouds until the moon showed itself above to the left quite a way up. These lights looked as though a plane was about the land straight on over my house but this was silent, the lights did not move they were completely stationary. I live next to a motorway so anyone going eastbound would’ve seen these too. Me and my son are gobsmacked after just witnessing this, I’m glad he seen it too or else I would’ve question myself. I hope some else comes forward to report this also as it was unmissable to the naked eye (massive)

I also checked Flightradar24 and there were no aeroplanes in the vicinity.

  1. A couple of things stand out here: I’m interested that you describe the lights as akin to aircraft landing lights, and stationary. Could it have been a helicopter with spotlights on for some reason? Before I get shot down for offering this as a possible explanation, I have witnessed a Sea King in the distance with a searchlight on, and it fits the description. The fact it was silent could be because it was actually further away than you thought; in the case of mine, I believed it to be nearer than it was. As for FlightRadar24, the fact your aircraft didn’t show up also points towards a helicopter. FlightRadar24 – like many such resources (and great fun they are) can only display aircraft that are squawking using certain types of transponders, the usual one being ADS-B. ADS-B is not yet a legal requirement and is therefore only fitted to some aircraft; police, news and even search and rescue helicopters often do not use ADS-B transponders, so would not have shown up. ADS-B becomes legally required in 2020. Of course, to satisfy those who consider me – and others who offer such explanations – to be buffoons, I could be wrong.

  2. Hi Steve,

    With reference your comment:’I have witnessed a Sea King in the distance with a searchlight on, and it fits the description’.

    As Dee never mentioned the width of these two ‘bright lights’ that hung silent & immobile in the sky, I have to disagree with your explanation that this was a Sea King or any other Helicopter.

    If someone observes a silver ball in the sky, it’s fair to say
    it could be massive, but a long way of, or very close by, because
    we have no way of determining the size of the silver ball, hence, there is no perspective!.

    When one observes an aircraft/helicopter in the sky we have a very good idea of the object’s size, and we are all aware of a
    helicopter way, way, before you see it, so am at a loss as to
    the reasoning for inferring that Dee was observing a Sea King
    & that no rotor noise was heard because,: ‘it was silent could be because it was actually further away than you thought’.

    In the case of your Sea King sighting, that you ‘believed was nearer to you than it was’, and you was obviously aware that you was observing a Sea King. How did you find out it wasn’t as close
    to you than you believed, because your perspective must have remained the same throughout!!.
