Reports Report 4432n (Event 4432-2017)

Name Gavin B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks There was a smoke trail behind it but the smoke trail dissapated quite soon. It was a very clear dark night. It was relatively low in the sky and it travelled in what seemed to me like a flat trejectory. It was definitely not anything like a firework and it was not an aircraft. There was no noise. Incidentally, a few weeks before, looking out in the same direction on a similarly dark night, a portion of the sky lit up for about 2 seconds. It filled an area about what you would see by forming a circle with thumbs and forefingers at arms length. It was a white/yellow light.
