Location of Sighting: Bury St Edmunds
Date of Sighting: 05.10.2013
Witness Name: Martin Laurance
Witness Statement: Was taking the opportunity to have a look at the stars through binoculars. Initially looking at a roughly 40/45 degree angle towards the east when a feint light with an orange hue was observed moving at an extreme pace across the sky. The size and intensity was the same as your usual satellite transit, only the light emitted from this object didn’t fade. The main reason why I’m reporting this is because as far as I’m aware, satellites or satellite debris don’t zigzag across the sky. This was moving from the south west to north easterly direction at what looked like great altitude, but no means of estimating height. Took about 8 seconds to transit without fading, was moving with a long sudden zigzag movement and moving very fast. Normally you can follow satellites and not scan the sky too quickly. Never seen something move so quick.
