IN YOUR OWN WORDS, DESCRIBE WHAT YOU SAW.

“Hi there

In the early morning of the 9th feb 21 I got up out of bed to go to the bathroom and just happened to look out of the sky light window as it was a beautiful clear sky, when all of a sudden this bright circular light caught my eye , being an avid ufo fan I stood and watched, then from nowhere 2 more bright lights appeared followed by another 2 bright circular lights appeared I must have stood there for at least the best part of 5 mins people might say they were just stars , the only reason they were not stars or planets is because they always stay in the same position in their own orbit , these 5 bright were doing manoeuvres which planets or aircraft could even dream of doing for instance like changing formations and stopping very quickly and speeding up at will to catch up with the other craft the position they came from was a northern direction only to speed of in an easterly direction ,another thing that made me sure was when they disappeared one by one was that a halo effect appeared as each one disappeared in a flash this all happened at around 4-15 am in the larne area on a very clear sky”

PLEASE SELECT...

I wish to remain anonymous.



Investigator comments:

This report is definitely intriguing, his report of objects vanishing in a halo of white light. Is similar to something I witnessed myself. A pinpoint of light suddenly expanded to a bluish light surrounded by a white ring of light and then it vanished.


2nd Investigator comments:

Having looked into this as well, I can confidently rule out commercial aircraft, with historical flight data suggesting that the closest airliner being approximately 32 miles East over Stranraer, Scotland - a Icelandair Boeing 747 (Reg: TF-FIH) at an altitude of 38,000 ft heading to Reykjavik.


And from a reliable source, no civil police or military aircraft was airborne at this time. As this doesn't sound like satellites, I haven't searched records for most known satellites, but did check ISS records, which indicate that the ISS was not visible to the area at this time.

Hynek Classification:
