Witness Statement
I looked out of my sitting room window, it was not completely dark, I was very surprised to see a row of three off white light at an angle, quite low in the sky. I imagine it is some sort of aircraft, it was not the front landing lights, I see those all time. Orion’s Belt was to the above left of these lights. They were moving away from me towards the south. The three lights were white with a yellowish tinge, they were in a straight line, attached to something I could not see, between the middle and right hand light and just slightly above was a very small red flashing light. I went outside to listen,as by the size of the lights, it looked to be quite a large plane that was also unusually low and flying at 90 degrees to the usual flight path. I could not hear anything out of the ordinary, certainly not a low flying plane. By this time it was moving towards the horizon (a hill about 1/3 mile away) I could still clearly see the three lights. I was very shocked and disconcerted for the rest of the evening. I looked up “three light aircraft configurations” on the internet but could only find landing lights on front of planes. I watched the sky at the same time yesterday, but saw nothing. I just wondered if anyone knows what kind of plane it was, I have lived under flight paths for 50 plus years and have never seen anything like this. What ever it was I was viewing it from behind.
