Reported: 11/12/1998 15:48
Posted: 11/19/1998
Location: Bath (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:10 secs
6 lights all in a row, behind each other, all white, 2nd light was brighter than the rest and the last 2 were close together. Observed it for about 10 seconds then it faded away.

I dont think it was an aircraft as I have observed many types of aircraft in the night sky and i have never seen anything like this,

I contacted sciencenet who said it was not a satellite.

It was approx 19:00 and I was standing outside my work in Bath UK.

I often watch the sky as i am interested in the stars and I also like aircraft. I looked up at the sky and saw what i could only describe as a line of lights, there were 6 of them and the 2nd light was brighter than the rest, they were spaced out unequally behind each other and the last 2 were very close together, all of them had a varying brightness, there was no noise.

I immediatley thought that these were 6 satellites. But after talking to someone they told me it couldnt have been satellites. This was definately not an aircraft, the lights were too far apart and of a different colour and brightness. they were moving in a South to North heading.

After watching them for about 10 seconds they faded and disapeared. Both my colleagues saw exactly what i have described. Could anyone possibly offer an explanation to what this could have been.
