Darren said: I had been watching the object with my girlfriend on the driveway of our house. It was a clear night so we thought we would sit outside and this was when I noticed a star like object but it was bigger than a star. It was doing zig zags in the sky, clockwise first then anti-clockwise. We looked at each other in amassment, I believe in UFOs but never thought I would see one.
Comment: Diane, Darren was observing the object while I was talking to him
on the phone.
I asked him if he had a video camera he said he thought he had but couldn't find it. I told him to tell his girlfriend to call the neigbours out to have a look and see if they could make out what the object could be.
(Q) Darren Could it be a star or the planet Venus
(A) No I'm a keen astronomer and I can tell a planet from a star and star from a plane and this was not a plane, planes don't act like that.
(Q) Do you have a camera I would like you to try and take some photos of it.
(A) I have taken around 6 photos I could see it the view finder I hope I held the camera firm enough to get a good shoot.
Darren said he would send a copy of the photos to us when gets them developed.
Still under investigation
