Boston College UFO

I am a German student currently at Boston College, England.

Many German and East European students attend Boston College, England, and many stay in the 'halls of residence', a building on one of the college campus. We are not allowed to smoke in this building, so me and two friends went outside to smoke a cigarette. As we were returning to the building from our smoke outside, all three of us noticed a stongly shining white light in the sky.

The light was much brighter than any stars in the sky, and moved much slower than a shooting star, but faster than most aircraft. The light went away from us, and then returned over us and remained going in this direction until we could see it no more. We could only see a light, no shapes. It just looked like a big star in the sky as it was in the sky very high.

That night was actually very cold, and there was fog, but we could still see the light quite clearly. There was no sounds or anything things else with the light. There might have been a haze about the light, but that might just have been the light shining outwards?
