Duration:10 mins
5 'shooting stars' across the English Channel (between Brighton, UK and Dieppe, France)

Whilst watching the starry night sky from the beach, we noticed a shooting star. This is quite common due to the good light for observing stars on this part of the beach in Kemptown. Shortly after, we spotted an aeroplane, confirming that it had been a shooting star originally, as the plane was a different height, shape, size, lights etc.

The shooting star crossed by another star which then began to fall aswell. This repeated (shooting stars crossing paths of others which then appeared to start 'shooting', until 5 were moving in total. I have no idea what it could have been as I found it unusual to see 5 shooting stars at once like that. They were lower than other stars, but didn't fizzle out or leave any dusty trail like other shooting stars ive seen.
