Description: 4 of us were facing north across the river Avoca. A large very bright light appeared to our North, NW. It was round in shape and very bright white light that seemed to shimmer other colours. It was very low approx 1000 to 2000 feet but its speed was remarkable but also seemed to stop dead several times we watched it for about 40 seconds and then it just vanished into thin air. It seemed to be tracking North East to South West. I am an avid plane spotter and amateur astronomer and never saw anything like this before.
