|Bright light observing Police Helecopter for 10 Mins in clear night sky
I observed this light approaching/coming toward me at fast speed. It was dark, clear sky. It stopped approx 300mtrs away from the circling overhead police helecopter and continued to "observe" it for approx 10 mins. When the helecopter vacated the area in a NE direction, the light disappeared at vast speed in a SE direction and disappeared. It not only stopped and observed helecopter, it made circular sweeps and right angled sweeps. It was impossible for it to be an aeroplane as the object was stationary when it was observing, and 2 it couldnt have been a helecopter as the right angled movements it made would not have been possible for this type of aircraft.
This is the first time I have ever seen something like this , and to be honest it was a wierd experience. I genuinely hope it was "something" because it was facinating to watch it perform.
A motor vehicle approached behind me down a well lit street and also looked up into the sky but did not stop. The car had 2 occupants in it, possible witnesses?? Dunno.
When it vacated the air space, I can only describe it as "bloody fast" and silent. The light faded when it was a distance away.
Really wonderful experience and I really hope its something.
I have also reported the incident to my local police station, and received a log number for it so you can verify I have actually seen this event.
