UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

June 30th 2008 : Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Grimsby, N.E.Lincs. UK

Date: 30/6/2008

Time: 01:52 (BST)

Number of witnesses: 1

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: "pinpoints"

Weather Conditions: fine with very very slight cloud - some pre-dawn light from north.

Description: I was out watching meteors when I noticed a "star" in the sky that I did not recognise, It was aprox 30 degrees up from the horizon and about 30 degrees east of due south.

At first I mistook it for a planet (I assume Venus) that is normally in that area in the sky at that time - but that was visible too.

Then over the space of a few seconds, It and a "neibour" just faded away...

There was little, or no movement, It's "neighbour" was a little lower and dimmer.

It's brightness was similar to the brightest planets in the sky.

To summarise it looked like an "iridium flare" as viewed through double glazing - You know how you get a second "ghost" image when you look through double glazing - except of course I wasn't looking through glass at the time.

I would be interested to hear if anyone else saw this...

PS; I know this isn't a very dramatic sighting, but I'm fairly experienced at looking into the sky, and I'm sure this is difficult/impossible to explain... Also I was completely sober/aw.
