Location: Alton, Hampshire (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:25 seconds
strange slow moving white light which had no lights on it and made no sound moving overhead and out of sight

I was with my brother and his girl-friend(who where both drunk)in the market square In Alton I was looking up into the night sky(as I often do)whilst I was messing around with them I glanced up again when I noticed a white light passing slowly directly overhead over us and over the nearby building's it must have been flying at an altitude of just over a 100 feet I noted that it was not displaying any visable flashing Wing lights which are displayed on normal aircraft at night and was also completely silent which was particularly strange as it was only a short distance away from us.It did seem to dim twice before it moved out of my vision and I could see it no longer.I'm certain that this object was not an aircraft and it definately was'nt a shoting star.this sighting was strange(it may have been a satellite)but why did the light dim then shine brightly again? other people may have seen this light as there was alot of people around but It has me puzzled.
