My boyfriend and I were stargazing on Saturday night, it was totally silent when he noticed what appeared to be a falling star. Well not quite, it was too bright and moving too fast and steadily from the NW to the SE. The light moved horizontally. Not vertically, so it was then that we realized it was something of the extraordinary. As this object got further we noticed a duplicate coming back in the opposite direction which would have been the SE heading towards the NW and the object seemed to have picked up in elevation, rising further away from earth. Have you ever seen a falling star that seemed to be falling into space as if it came from earth? We both knew we had experienced something unusual. Coincidently the following night we tried star gazing again and It was then when I noticed a third light moving as the other two did the night before.
