Description: At 20:15 on Sunday 1st March 2009 I was in my back garden in West Bridgford, Nottingham, with my 14 year old son looking for Comet Lulin, looking South West towards Leo.
Suddenly a swarm of about 100 flashing white lights appeared, very high in the sky, moving from North West very quickly keeping equidistant, and disappearing about 45 degrees above the horizon in the South East. A solitary flashing light appeared behind the swarm and moved faster, apparently trying to catch up.
Both myself and my son saw this phenomena. We have no idea what it was. It could be a meteor shower or space debris but the lights appeared to be blinking quite quickly and at the same frequency. It could be a squadron of planes but there were about 100 lights and I have never heard of squadrons of this size flying in peacetime. There were no trails as one would expect with meteors. The lights appeared about the same size and brightness as a fairly bright star such as Regulus.
