Posted: 8/7/2007
Location: Lowestoft (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright light seen moving north east over Lowestoft in Suffolk, England

I was in my back garden and saw what i thought at first to be star except it was moving, at a steady pace north east. I live right next to the sea and it was heading outward towards the sea.

At the time there was a helicopter in the sky some distance away with the typical strobe light (i am assuming this was a police helicopter). The object in question tho, was a constant bright white light, as bright as the north star. I wouldn't have been able to tell the two apart except for the fact one was moving. There was no noise that i could hear.

Didn't have time to get my camera, will make sure i have it ready and waiting if anything like this happens again.
