|Fast moving small bright light
I was at home studying with curtains open and glanced out the window. A small bright light was flying along the terraced houses opposite (across a green about 100ft away) just at the level of the roof gutters.
It was moving slowly and I thought someone must be flying a model aircraft. I thought this must be difficult in the dark and so I went to the window.
It moved to the end of the row of houses where it rose up to the full height of the roof.
I was still looking for ' the person controlling the model plane,' when it started to accelerate and ascend. In a matter of 3 seconds it had disapeared over a hill about 400ft high and a mile away.
I have estimated it must have been travelling over 1000 mph by the time it disapeared.
