Location: Cornwall (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:seconds
Bright while lights speeding low across the sky, then shooting vertically up.

I was sat watching TV at about 1.15 am when My Husband came home from a late shift. I got up to have a ciggy outside the back door and as I usually do when I go outside at night I glanced up up to the sky.

Just at that moment two bright white lights shot over our house, one just behind the other. They were going at super fast speed, and I judged them to be quite low (About the same height as the local air ambulance helicopter flies over) I can only compare the speed of them to war zone footage I have seen on TV of tracer bullets fired at night. they were that fast.

It looked like one was tailing the other, and both seemed to be darting slightly from side to side as they travelled forwards. They got to a point just over the school behind our house and without slowing just shot up vertically and then vanished in the cloud. They were completely silent. No noise at all.

Al this took maybe a matter of seconds. I was just stood there looking up with my mouth open. It really was a "WHAT THE FU.....!" moment.

The hair on the back of my neck literally did stand on end! I have never seen anything like it in real life. They looked just like those little things that fly around in the film "Close Encounters". In fact, that is what I thought as I was stood looking up at them. (I know that sounds like a bit of a cliché but that is the best way to give you an idea of what they looked like.) I have no bloody clue as to what it was. I had no time to get my a camera and film them, and even if I did I think I would have been to preoccupied to think about grabbing it.

(I would just like to add, even though I am quite interested in reported UFO sightings, I don't particularly go looking for them, and wasn't even sure if I believed in odd things flying around in our skies. I have never witnessed anything like this before, and even though I am quite rational and like to find possible explanations for stuff like this, after seeing something for myself I have no idea at all what it was.)
