Location: Frodsham/Northwich (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:5 mins
Saw light in night sky, quite close 150m, no sound, no movement, 5 mins plus, unpopulated area, white light, uk.

Driving home after visiting friends through countryside separating frodsham and northwich (where i live). I have done this route hundreds of times and as i turned a certain corner i saw a light hovering in the sky. Instantly i thought it was a police helicopter with its search light on although the light was not sweeping. As i drove closer the light was still fixed in the same point in the sky, the light was bright about 150 metres up and i could not make out a shape due to the light. At this point i started to become more inquisitive and slowed down to pass the light in the sky which was now on my left at a distance of 200 metres max. I slowed to virtually a halt so to hear the helicopter blades and did not hear anything( I had not long left the air cadets so I knew my helicopters!) A cold chill then came across me as i realised this was not right, there was no sound, i stopped my pug 205 and switched off the engine and again looked left the light was still in exactly the same position hovering above farm land. I opened my window and still no sound this was now a bit scary , a dark country lane with no one around and this thing hovering. To be honest i shit it and sped off home! I'm a pretty sceptical person and like to base my judgement on fact and this certainly tested my beliefs. Only a few people have heard my story and they no I have never been a storyteller, after reading on the internet some info about freedom of information i decided to write about it. The event is still clear in my mind to this day.
