|pulsing light seen over fields longbridge birmingham england
I retired to bed to join my wife at 11.45pm.On opening the bedroom curtains I spotted an intense reddish green light,that had a peculiar matt appearance to it.The object seemed to be pulsing at about five second intervals,changing colour from red to green to orangy red and back.At one stage it dissappeared briefly only to reappear in the same position.The object remained stationary.When observed through binoculars I could discern no shape,or outline,just brighter colours.We [my wife and I]watched the object for about six minutes before it disappeared, moving away towards the horizon, in line of sight, in one to two seconds.Cloud cover was about one quarter,in streaks.Two stars were visible and judged against these the the observed light was clear and bright.We had no sense of time distortion or loss[I kept glancing at the bedroom clock.]I thought of grabbing my videocamera but could'nt quite remember where it was.Our house sits on a gentle hillside and we can look out across the rooftops toward the horizon some three miles distant.The observed object was directly in line of sight, and above the horizon[treeline]by about five to ten degrees hovering[?]above fields in that area.Weather was a mild, by british standards,summer night.We live on the flight path for birmingham airport and regularly see planes and police helicopters in the sky above our house.This object matched neither flight patterns nor navigation light pattern usually observed by ourselves.The object may have been there for a longer period of time,but I only saw it for the reported period.
