Saw firstly what I thought was a satellite going across the sky, then over a period of an hour I counted nearly 70+ all in a roughly same distance apart, some closer moving north in a line formation, no noise or anything, seemed to be coming from a certain spot in the sky and continuing north then disappearing in the distance

I was travelling home and I noticed an object in the sky about 2 minutes from home, it was fairly high up, black and looked like a large bird so it captured my attention. As I carried on tracking the object I noticed it had no wings, and so assumed it must be a drone. As I arrived in my housing estate I saw little glimpses of it between the houses so at this point it was fairly low. It looked much larger than a drone upon further inspection. I parked the car at home and rushed to a gap in the road where I could see clearly. It was a large black object, similar in shape to that of a human, I’d never seen anything like it before and it made no noise at all. I saw it for a few seconds before it disappeared over some trees, very strange sighting.

Me and my dad were out in our garden between 10:20PM -1045PM to look for the Starlink Satellites as they were due to pass over. Whilst observing them, our attention was then suddenly diverted to a strange bright light that then dimmed before reoccurring a second time a few moments later; although we have some speculations it may have possibly been the ISS or some other satellite catching the light from the sun. We then witnessed something even stranger: A very bright light shot across the night sky in the opposite direction to the satellites, appearing to go from east to west. I know the obviously explanation would be a meteor, but it almost seemed to travel a little too slow to be one, yet faster than anything else I could really think of. I believe there are very simple explanations to these strange sightings, but I am baffled by what I have witnessed and would be intrigued know what they could possibly be.

Red Light Moving In The Sky, Headington Oxford, 8th May 2020

At about 9:40 on Friday evening I went upstairs to our second-floor bedroom, which has north facing windows. It was a lovely evening, with calm air. The curtains were not yet drawn and the windows wide open. I was looking out over Headington. To my right, on a bearing of about 20 degrees I saw something in the sky. It was at about the height one might see a helicopter, but the light was wrong. Instead of a single bright spot, and usually flashing, it was very red, and diffuse, rather like a fire. However, hot air balloons do not fly at night. Also, I then noticed it was moving, far faster than something driven by the wind, but not nearly as fast as a projectile like a shooting start. I would estimate it initially as somewhere like over Bury Knowle Park. However, it began to move East, or but also getting closer, so more like SE, as if approaching the end of Lime Walk. As it did so it appeared to get a little lower, and the brightness flickered and faded. Then when roughly due north of me it went out altogether, also looking as if it may have gone behind a cloud, which was strange as that evening there was little cloud, and it was high. It did not make sense.
Reflecting on what on earth it could have been I continued to look out, and could see some of the brighter stars. Then much to my amazement I saw more to my left, as if about over Stapleton Road towards the lower end, a grey ‘blob’. Its place was on the trajectory of the previous object I had seen. There was now no light, and quite low. The object’s size was difficult to judge, as I was not certain how far away it was. However, about 2m diameter would be an estimate. Grey in colour, but then it was dusk. Its shape was not stable, basically spherical, but it was quivering slightly, and somewhat wispy, but moving far faster than the air. It was slowly descending, but its horizontal progress was about 10 times it’s downward speed. It carried on, in an ESE or perhaps SE direction, looking as if it were heading to come down close to Old Road, perhaps near the end of Valentia Road, or a bit nearer. However, it then disappeared from view.
The whole sighting lasted about 5 minutes, with a gap of about 1 minute in the middle when I could not see it.

Chrome Sphere Flying Next To C172 Plane – Fife, Near Scotlandwell, Scotland – July 2014

I saw a very strange flying object a few years ago while at the gliding club near Scotlandwell. A summers day, July (I think) 2014, almost cloudless sky and about 11:30 AM. (My last year before retiring!).
I was in one of the glider launching winches and looked up, amazed to see a c172 flying past at about 1100 feet and flying East away from us slowly – only 80 knots or so. But next to it and keeping perfect formation was what looked like a ‘chrome’ sphere. It looked solid and as reflective a brand new ball bearing. You would almost think it was connected by an invisible rod so perfect was the station keeping. Impossible of course but there it was. I didn’t have my phone on, so no photos, and after watching it for 20 seconds I got a radio call for another launch so my attention had to be 100% on that. After that (about 40 seconds until launch finished, cable pulled in and machine stopped) it was too far away to see properly.
The aircraft must have arrived from my 5 o’ clock position so those at the launch point should have seen it first. But with no glider actually ready and with everyone else flying over to the north I don’t exepct they were looking that way and I would only look all the way around if preparing to launch or if a passing aircraft called me. So nobody seems to have seen it approach the area.
To make sure it wasn’t a reflection (it didn’t look like one anyway) I moved about and opened a door seeing it ‘out in the open’. It certainly looked like it was in perfect formation. The Cessna flew smoothly – no turbulence – and didn’t change course or show signs of knowing about the sphere (but it must have been visible had the pilot looked beyond their left wingtip). In that ~20 seconds my viewpoint changed from the Cessna pilot’s 8 o’ clock position round to near to his/her 6 o’ clock. That showed me it was a sphere and not – say an oval shape. I waited during the rest of the day to see if anyone else mentioned seeing it but no.
I made a rough sketch of what I saw and a map showing where it happened.
