Reported: 5/3/2022 3:31:30 PM 15:31
Posted: 5/31/2022
Location: Knaresborough, North Yorkshire
Shape: Light
Duration: Around 5 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Very bright light with a haze around it.

I had gone outside as I do every night to make sure everything was locked up and noticed how clear the sky was, not a cloud in sight. I then noticed a bright white light that for a few seconds looked like it was behind some thin cloud cover. Then I remember thinking there is no cloud cover and it can't be the Moon or ISP as its the wrong part of the sky. It took me some seconds to realise the light was moving. It wasn't going fast or changing direction, flashing or changing colour. Just moving very slowly across the sky and fading off into the distance. I have spent a lot of years looking at the night sky and never seen anything like this. The object was moving from a SSE to NNW direction and almost directly overhead.
