Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Varying

Full Description of event/sighting: It started out as a big star, it did not move in any direction for the 15 minutes I observed it but it changed in appearance several times before fading away. First it looked like a big star surrounded by millions of normal stars and a few thin whisps of cloud. It grew and I thought it was a meteor coming straight towards me. I panicked at first but when it reached the size of a golf ball held at arms length away from my eyes it stopped growing, a black spot appeared in the middle and grew until a ring of light was left. This morphed into three separate lights in a triangular formation. They then morphed back together in a shape which I can only best describe as a mushroom. Then it faded away. It lasted 15 minutes approx was witnessed also by my girlfriend at the time, it did not move - it just came towards us, I guess maybe 1 to 2 miles away in the sky but plainly visible, put on this peculiar display and then faded away where it had came from.! Supernova? No - UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon).

Thank you to the witness for the report.
