Description: I walked outside the kitchen to have a ciggie and heard a noise above. I looked up and saw what was an aircraft of some description. It had blue and red lights and was flying very low just above the mountain range behind our house.
The noise was similar to the sound of a vacuum cleaner that you would hear from a distance. It sounded a bit like an engine that was idling also.
As it reached the mountain range strong white lights appeared that lit up the mountain. This light was so powerful and strong that I initially thought that it was returning to land about 100 meters behind our house.
I ran inside to tell my partner to come outside to look. We ran outside and we could see the blue and red lights slowly disappearing into the distance. It flew away until it appeared like a star but it was still blue and red.
We watched it for at least 10 minutes more and it appeared to be stationary but it was the brightest star in the sky. Then it slowly began to move and disappeared over the horizon.
What was that?
When I was watching it before the strong white lights appeared I was almost in disbelief. When the white lights appeared I was nervous and I was relieved when it continued flying on over the mountain range.
