Location: Bristol, South Gloucester (UK/England),
|tube of light in clear blue sky
Sunday 21st August 05 14:44 pm Sat in the back garden watching the planes going overhead to and from London over Bristol it was a lovely day blue sky very little cloud so visibility was really good we were looking at a Easy jet flying west to east, from where we were standing in the garden it reached it’s most northerly point from us, when my son spotted a light in the sky it was quite bright in the day light sky and stood out lot from the blueness of the sky, it’s flight path was from north to south and coming towards us very very high up and must of been really big in size because it looked as big as a jumbo but was much higher then you normally see a plane.
I told my son to keep watching it and ran to get my camera ,I got back and filmed about five minutes of the object. It then changed direction and went in a west to easterly direction, When I stopped filming it I then watched it go far into the distance still at a very high altitude it still looked so bright it stood out very much in the blueness of the sky.
