Hi Brian, I wonder if you can shed any light on what I saw last night at about 10.00 p.m.
It all happened so quickly. I am a care giver for my mum and live in London, but visit Grangetown regularly to attend to her. I have a smoke outside the kitchen door (tobacco only and I’m tee total !) where I have a clear view of Eston Hills.
My mum lives on Tennyson Ave which can give you an idea of the distance from the hills.
At first I saw three massive white, round lights which shone very brightly and seemed to be sitting in front of the masts, which sit at the very top of the hills. They didn’t move. They were absolutely massive. I’ve taken this view in many times over the years and I can say without a doubt that they were at least half the size, if not bigger, of the masts.
It happened so quickly that it is difficult to expand on the size, but they were big and so bright. I then noticed two orange lights, further down the hills. One to the left and one to the right. They were motionless for a while then moved up the hills at high speed.
They were so quick and big I do not believe they were lanterns, and they moved in a straight line. I was so taken aback by this that I think, but cannot be a 100% sure that the three lights at the top of the hill came on again. The two orange lights then shot up into the air and I followed the one to the left which came forward and seemed to fly overhead.
I don’t know what happened to the one on the right of my vision, as I was following the light on the left. The three lights on the hills then came on again and seemed to move as if turning to the right and disappeared.
As I mentioned I do not drink and do not take drugs. I was 100% sober when I saw this. It all happened in maybe three minutes, if that. It was the sheer size of these things that convinces me it was something out of the ordinary.
I would appreciate your feedback and whether anyone else saw this. feel free to ask me any questions, but as I say it all happened so quickly. Thanks.
