Whilst out late night cycling (as i have done so for many years and am a hardy fellow);I paused at the cliff tops of our local beach, (approx 150 ft high) the weather was still with a slight chill in the air, the sky was clear and the sea calm, stars were visible. The view is breath taking and i observe for several minutes - like a dream over the horizon and not as high as my top line of vision (eyebrows)a bright pinpoint white light appeared to my middleleft*_>>_______________________________>>_* and dissappeared to my middle right: - what who , no one else around was it a trick of light; I later did some rough calculations 50,000 mph 100,000 mph it was horizontal in trajectory and less than a second, no chance of a photo! am i insane definately not. I am an engineer. so i keep telling myself, i didnt tell any one about this for three years- they didnt believe me, Even my dying father,who has since passed away (2002) and he saw 25 a bomb tests. The only logical explanation is sun light reflecting of off the sattelite array, could this be my salvation? this is my one and only record of this event i don't wish to be caught up in the air balloon fanatic dopes, .It was over the equator the bay looks south-wards it stayed silent , i stood there for a few moments and carried on my ride. My only logical conclusion, stay quiet they/ it comes in peace , would you get success shooting a weapon at a pidgeon ,just crap.
