Description: Hi, came across this site by accident and remembered an exraordinary thing I witnessed back in the late 70s. I was walking home at about 11PM one Sunday evening with my then girlfriend, through a built-up area. We came to a gap in the terraced houses and looked up above the field to the rear of the houses, and saw a "dancing" object, about the size of a full moon, in the clear sky. The object was making movements like a bouncing ball, from one point in the sky to another, then shooting almost instantaneously back to the point it started from. It repeated this cycle several times before my girlfriend became scared, and wanted to walk on. I was fascinated, and asked her to wait a while. I would guess, at the time and from memory, it was quite a way up, though how far I couldn't say. It was circular, spherical or disc shaped.Amazingly, after a while, it split into four sections, which then shot away, apparently upwards and in roughly the same direction. I thought I'd relate this to you, as it was a thing I've remembered vividly to this day, and never seen the like of since.

Color/Shape: Silver

Height & Speed: Unknown, amazing departure speed
