Investigator Comments

We've contacted the witness and supplied an email address through which they can submit their footage to us. Given the brief detail from the witness, we can't make much of it just yet. The only terrestrial explanation we can offer is perhaps another Chinese lantern, given the time of year or a passing satellite. Upon inspecting the history of the ISS, we can see that it was not visible at that time over Northern Europe, so we can confidently rule out the ISS.


If anyone else in southern County Down saw anything like this around this time, please get in touch.
