South Yorkshire, Barnsley-21st-28th July 2012

Location of Sighting: South Yorkshire, Barnsley
Date of Sighting: 21/07/2012 TO 28/07/2012
Time: 1am – daylight
Witness Name: Kieron Hawkins

Witness Statement: I often stay up for most of the night, being quite the insomniac. From my bedroom window for the last week, at exactly 1am in the morning, every morning, I have witnessed this huge bright light in the sky. I am almost certain that this is not the space station. The light appears through cloudy nights and clear nights, regardless of conditions, it is there. Half way through the week I started seeing the second light to the upper left in the video that I have taken just now at 3am in the morning. I’d just like to say that these lights are absolutely without a single doubt in my mind, NOT lanterns, planes, weather balloons or anything of the sort, they stay in the same position all night long and they do not disappear until it gets too light to see them.

  1. Hello Kieron
    I am a keen watcher of the sky’s and i too have seen the light you mention rising from north east direction , i have checked with online sky charts and what you are seeing is a star called Capella which is the 6th brightest star in the sky . and as you say it is still very bright even in the early light of the morning . the other light you see is possibly a star called Mirfak…

  2. Hi Kieron,is it possible to download the video so we can take a look,cheers.
