29 AUGUST 2010 – SEVEN SISTERS
10:15 PM. Witness: Jonathan Carr.
“I had just entered the local park (the Rec) whilst taking the dogs for a walk. The sky was clear as it was a crisp evening. No clouds.
The park has no lighting and was pitch black. The moon was behind me and the only other bright light in the sky was – I presume – Venus, at about 30 degrees above the horizon, to the East. [Venus would actually be in the west at this time of the day – E.W.]
I was looking down the valley to the South West when a bright white light appeared above the tree tops. It was silent and moving very quickly.
From seeing it to it reaching 90 degrees above my head was approx 30 seconds. It was twice as bright as Venus, travelling in a straight line from the South West to North East. It displayed no navigation lights, so from my ATC training as a youngster, was not an aircraft.
After the light reached directly overhead, I turned to watch it. It continued in a straight line and constant speed for about 3 seconds. It then began to climb, on the same trajectory, the light becoming fainter until after about 5 seconds it was an orange spec, but still visible.
At this moment it immediately made a 25-30 degree sharp turn to the left and continued in this new direction for about 2 seconds before fading.”
