Time: 10.20am

Number of witnesses: 2 or more

Number of objects: 1 central + others

Shape of objects: Fat at one end, thin at other. Black.

Weather Conditions: Sunny

Description: Thought it was a helicopter at first but could not make out any details - fat at one end, thin at another. Then suddenly it started shooting bright orange balls or diamond shapes towards the ground. They spread out in a pattern as they moved away from the central object. I reacted to this and said out loud to the other people on the train to look. The chap I was with is partially sighted - he could not see the central object but did see the lights. He said it might be flares or some kind of training exercise. The object occasionally changed so that the thinner end was upright. The lights continued to shoot out of the central object about every 20 seconds. I just don't know what it was. Lost sight of the object due to the train moving away from it.
