Lincoln-3rd October 2014

Location of Sighting: Lincoln/ Lincolnshire
Date of Sighting: 3/10/2014
Time: 21:20
Witness Name: D.Phillips

Witness Statement: I was standing in my garden looking up at the sky watching satellites go by. I saw three or four first , then a very faint one caught my attention, as I tracked it it got a little brighter but not that bright . Then out of nowhere I saw flashes of light away from the satellite . At first I thought it was a planes white light flashing but it flashed then again about 1second after then about 3 seconds after , on the last flash was as if it had shot away very quickly . I kept looking thinking I would see a plane or here one but it never came . I look up at the night sky alot and this is the strangest thing I have ever seen.

  1. Satellite or iridium flares (the sun glinting off satellites in earth orbit) is possible. They can be predicted, and you should be able to enter your location and the time of the event at to see if this explains what you saw.

    A meteor is another possible explanation – some burn up very rapidly on entering the atmosphere. or ‘bounce’ off it back into space.

  2. Sounds like the phenomenon known as iridium flares.

  3. Hey theer

    I am in Boston and me and my husband see these lights quite regularly, especially towards the star constellation of Ursula major(the plough) and also towards Lincoln. I have put a post on here previous so if you search Boston it should come up.

  4. We’ve talked this one through before Marie!
