It was just like 2 stars circling each other.

It's taken a long time for me to find a way to report this & the date is not accurate as it was a few years ago.

I was living in the town of Kirkby in Ashfield in Nottinghamshire England UK. My wife & i were walking home from a night out & the sky was very clear & full os stars. It was the time of the Halle-Bopp comet which could be seen with the naked eye.

My wife asked me if we could see the comet & i pointed it out to her. After observing the comet she commented on 2 objects that looked like stars but they were circling each other. Two other women stood by us to see what we were looking at & they also saw this display in the sky.

After circling each other for a few minutes they stopped then one of them flew in a straight line to the left of us & the other went the opposite direction. It was like they knew we were watching them or whatever it was.

The one that flew in the opposite direction (to the right) suddenly stopped. I didn't take my eye off it for the rest of the walk home.

When i got home i asked my mother to come out as she was child minding but it was not their when we went back out.

Very strange but this is a true statement & i swear to God & on my own life that is what we saw.
