Characteristics: The object left a trail
witnessed 30ft diameter meteor type thing accelerate into the sky then disappear after five other stange sightings after

Glanced out the window of my city center apartment and suddenly saw what I initially thought to be a a meteor. It was fluorescent blue and it seemed to be accelerating upwards. It seemed pretty close to the ground (about 200 ft)and what I'd liken it to was the back of a jet engine accelerating (when the orange becomes brighter) except it seemed quite wide like 30ft in diameter. My girl friend witnessed it with me and then it suddenly vanished. It was completely weird. I honestly believe it was a ufo.. then we wouldn't stop looking out the window (as you would do after something like that) and noticed these three objects really high in the sky and I know it wasn't a helicopters or aeroplanes as I can see the flight path of aeroplanes coming in to Newcastle (you can visibly see planes ascending/descending) and the height. These objects could easily have been mistaken for stars.. they were that far away but you could make out they were changing colors red, white and blue. One of them was closer (but still miles up)and you could see it getting smaller and smaller like it was accelerating away. I should also mention the positions of them in the sky was like a large (I'd imaging miles wide) triangle. These seemed to hang around for a few hours and after a while i just stopped watching but I am certain the two diff items are related....I'd like some commentary from you in this via e-mail. Cheers
