Reported: 8/21/2011 2:28:01 PM 14:28
Posted: 8/21/2011
Location: London (UK/England),
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:2 MINUTES
Very bright Star in London moving slowly overhead. Have good pictures.

Bright start like object moving slowly- a consistent speed. Too slow to be a shooting star. Perhaps the international space station? Took video footage with digital camera. Also took two pictures with flash before object vanished. Pictures came out surprisingly clear. When I zoom in object seem to have a slight tail.

I was the brightest things moving in the night sky.

I would really appreciate an email with any suggestions as to what this could be?

Thanks for your time.
