Date of Sighting:14.12.2013
Time: 07:30 6:45 6:00
Witness Name: James McGregor & Janette Edwards
Witness Statement:Viewing the 14.12.2013 meteor shower on the rocks/cliffs of seafront of Whitley Bay between the hours of 04:30 and 07:30.
Many meteors/shooting stars were also sighted and this was very nice but the other lights, were not stars meteors or planes of any common knowledge to the best of my belief.
Lights were first spotted directly overhead the lights only flashed on and then remained off for longer than your standard airline plane also there was defiantly only one light, no tail lights or any for the wings (green or red) also no trail, living at the coast my whole live i know the airlines use St. Mary’s lighthouse as a transit point for Newcastle Airport, so have seen many planes in the sky in the past, the lights moved in a zigzag fashion then disappeared completely (06:00)
Then at 06:45 a new star had appeared also directly above, forming a perfect looking equilateral triangle with the handle of the ‘Big Dipper’ the star began to orbit in circles around the point it had previously been stationed at, then starting moving across the night sky towards Jupiter, very fast, to high for a plane, one solid glowing circular white light, resembled a star, more agile and nimble than a plane, could move in directions that a plane could not, stop and change direction, lost sight of it in the distance (06:45)
On the way home, as it was now dawn, another star like, omnidirectional solid glowing object appeared in the sky, looked as if it was within our atmosphere, flying south across the horizon, paused for a moment, flashed intensely then changed direction and began to fly north towards Sirius the brightest star in the sky (07:30)
