|Strange lights and a ring of unexplained fire
Coming back from my inlaws on the evening of 11 Feb 2007 (they live in Norwich) we travel down the A11/M11. This particular evning the skys were quite clear. One extremely bright 'star' caught my eye to the right of the vehicle as we were travelling 'south'/. It could not have been Sirius as i've been mesmerised by Sirius for some time now since i discovered what a previous sighting i had from home was the dog star via the greenwich observatory.
This 'star' as ill call it was so, so bright and just hung there in the sky. it was constantly there just moving as we did so perhaps it may be explained as a planet. it definately wasn't a plane as we came past stanstead airport and planes were taking off and landing and showing all characterristics of planes whereas this was just there.
Stopping off at a place called Fourwentways in Cambridgeshire i could not see this 'star' even though this is a open place and the 'star' was so bright it should have been seen.
Watching the skys as i always do on this long journey from Norfolk to London whilst keeping an eye out for this 'star' i noticed on the horizon various other extremely white lights or 'stars' and then every so often there would be a bright red 'star' which appeared to move. one going high into the air and then back down to earth again. I assumed these were arials of some kind but i then say some closer ariels that you could make out to be arials that the red light didnt move on yet these other red lights moved.
Just past Stanstead Airport almost on the borders of Essex in a field to my left was what looked like a huge circle of flame but it was in such a way that it could not have been a field on fire it was moreso a complete unmoving circle of flame but it was only lit 3/4's round and not a complete circle and it wasn't out of control as a field fire would be.
So stunning to see and then it was gone.
My partner saw the bright star i was looking at but he was driving thus concentration on the road was paramlount. the only other witness was my 1 year old baby who i dont think would be abe to tell you anything!
((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Venus in the southwest sky?? PD))
