Weather Conditions: Perfect clear dusk night....
Description: We were both walking at dusk down to the hotel village complex restaurant at just before 8pmish... when I first saw what I thought was a rescue helicopter, with search light hovering... then like a very bright it started moving slowly and hovering betwixt us and Fuerteventura.
But then the odd stuff happened... it plummeted at an amazing speed then held station... but pulled an amazing firework like vapour trail... it held this position for about a minute or so more...
Then this object whizzed off again and on stopping, same dramatic flare like effect... 2-3 mins later then it fired off once more and simply disappeared...
We were somewhat dumfounded and perplexed but agreed what we'd seen was strange... moments later a small light with a red light flashing... (obviously an airliner) came into sight... moving continually on a smooth and steady cruising course... and we both said... whatever we'd seen it wasn't that!!
TV/Radio: No not reported... we think the incident lasted only 3-5 mins or so....
