Location: South Kilkenny (Ireland),
|Multiple objects shadowed by aircraft, also a strange shooting star
As I closed a window at 1am I noticed a strange light moving in the sky from the west travelling east. I exited the building to further investigate the light; the light was brighter than any other feature in the sky apart from the moon which was directly to the east of my location.
As I watched the light I noticed the familiar flashing lights of a plane also travelling toward me from the west but not directly, the plane quickly closed the distance as the light passed my position and now moved eastwards to the south of my location. The light quickly grew dimmer until I could not see it, as I was looking south at the light I noticed the familiar flashing of a planes lights in the horizon travelling from south to north.
I looked up and waited for the plane to pass over and as I watched I noticed another light, this light was no brighter than any of the stars in the sky and was also travelling from south to north. I followed the second dimmer light and it passed directly over my position and then continued to travel northwards, as I turned my head back to look at the plane I noticed a shooting star fall somewhere behind the plane to the southwest of my position. It was not a usually shooting star and appeared like magnesium burning, or bits of it dripped of the main object until it completely disappeared.
