We were sitting on the lawn at a Bed & Breakfast in Pipps Ford, Suffolk UK looking at the stars on a particularly clear night. We saw a couple of shooting stars - which was nice.Then we saw something different. If you can imagine Plough at the bottom right hand, then move three stars up from the handle of the Plough. That was the end point of the sighting. Forgive the crudeness of the map. * * * * -------------Path of ufo-------------------- * * * * * * It is quite a stretch of sky and it moved really quite quickly before disappearing. It did seem to us too slow for a comet, too fast for an aircraft. We are both not particularly interested in ufos but this has caught our imagination. I'm a teacher my partner works in sales.
