At 06:05, on 30 October 2008, the witness did observe a bright object appearing in the North-East sky. This object appeared to be a planet like light in the sky, which moved, over a period of about 4 minutes to the South-West.

As the object moved from North-East to South-West, the lights became more defined and appeared to be the landing lights of a commercial airliner. However, the object had no flashing beacons. It appeared as though the object was several hundred feet in the air, as it passed quietly overhead. In it’s passing it’s white light appeared to change color to an orange.

After passing directly overhead, the observer noticed a conventional airliner approaching the object, on a near intercept course, but obviously at a much higher altitude. Neither object appeared to take make any noticeable course changes, or take any notice of the other. The object continued to the South-West until it disappeared.

The observer, of the above mentioned object, is employed as a Staff Engineer, working in the Communication Technology field, with over 20 years Information Technology experience.
