Shape: Triangle
Duration: about 2 mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
In the end of the fireworks i saw a small light in the sky

I spent the new years with my family in Madeira... I dont remmember if it was during the fire works or after, but like, about 0:05, I pointed to the sky, i pointed to something like an aeroplane, which was what we thought it was, i showed it to my cousins and my uncle. we looked at it... it disapeared in the fumes of the fire works... its was very far away- we could only see lights. after some mins or secs, it appears again, but going in the opposite direction- like going back from where it came from. It stoped in the air... then it went a bit down and continued to the direction and dissapeared in the fumes. some secs after it appeared again and this time, i stared at it, and i could see the triangle form, kind of an arrow, like this = ( > ) there were green lights on the back points and a wite one on the front (i cant remmember the light colours very well). then it dissapeared and apeared again in the "2nd" direction again. and dissapeared for good! it was awsome! i loved to see it closer
