Location: Jarna (Sweden),
Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 minutes approx
Two lights moving slowly soundlessly towards and over

I am englishman living in sweden for 7 years now. I live in a semi rural, wooded, small town 40 miles to the south west of stockholm, Sweden.

I was out cross country skiing alone in the wooded countryside around the town in the proximity of nearby houses and a golf course. It was pitch black but a very clear night. Stars were clearly visible.

On coming out of the woods to the open golf course a light in the sky caught my eye approximately 300/4000 metres in front of me. It immediately struck me as unusual and I stopped skiing wondering what it could be.

The light was well above tree level but did not appear exceedlingly high in the sky. It was about the size of a very large light bulb (although it may have been larger had it in fact been higher in the sky-it was this which that was difficult to determine-height and size). Colour-orange with a green haze around it. It made no perceptable sound what so ever.

It moved slowly overhead above me and proceeded on in the opposite ditection. The whole time the speed seemed absolutely constant, i.e. slow.

I watched the light move over me and off in the other direction. On looking back to where I had first seen the light an identical light proceeded in an identical fashion on the same trajectory, overhead above me and off.

I wathced the two lights which appeared ! to climb into the sky until they were no longer visible.

From first seeing the lights until they disappeared must have taken about 5-10 minutes as I noticed I was becoming cold from just standing as oppossed to skiing.
