|High altitude red lights moving too fast to be any modern aircraft
3 years ago i had 2 friends overnight at my new house and we decided to throw and all nighter.
So we went down to the Craigie Primary School to lie on the roof and gaze at the stars because the sky was clear and the stars clearly visible.
Then my friend said he saw a red light in the sky, but me and my other friend couldnt see it.
Then we both saw it, there was a little red light which looked like a star, as it must have been pretty high up.
It was moving really smoothly around in maneuvers that modern aircraft wouldnt be able to pull off.
We saw 2 or 3 more lights, they were all moving around in these difficult maneuvers.
Then suddenly one of them sped up, zoomed off and dissappeared out of our sight like a bullet and it seemed it went around the earth in seconds, or maybe another one joined the group because we saw one speed over our heads and join the group again as if the light circum navigated the globe in about 10 seconds.
They all left a small light trail behind when they moved really fast and when they wern't moving really fast they were just wafting lazily in circles.
It was strange, one second the ywere wafting, then doing difficult maneuvers then speeding off the face of the earth and reappearing from the other side.
We watched this into the morning hours until it was too bright to see them anymore then we went inside and decided to go to sleep.
We always just passed it off as a meteor shower or something we were really freaked out that we witnessed this.
I just decided to Report this tonight because i want to know if anyone else has witnessed anything similar to this so i can hear their recollection of the event.
