Location: Southwest UK (UK/England), AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:40 minutes
UK SOUTHWEST dull light moving slowly sometimes circling but turns out to be a big body like a cloud but a moving thing. Lost time too.

Outside smokin a cigarette in the garden, next to an unlit car park and field area. Southwest England. Bright but DULL light next to a star, seemed to be slowly moving, didn't understand if it was actually moving or not but by the time I realised, the star it was next to was far from the original point.

I ended up watching it for a while as it moved slowly, bits of dull light trailing off from the main light going the other way it was moving. It stayed moving in the same area then would slowly go back to being next to the first star area then move slowly again and spin and circle but the extra lights would only come off he main one when it was going in circles.

The main dull light though would get dulled but kind of spark-glow, I don't know the words to describe it.

When it would unglow I thought it was going behind a dark cloud but there are no clouds but I also don't know why the moon isn't out on this side of the house tonight as it's super low lately so there's no clouds, Turns out after what feels like forever, it's actually a really hard to focus on black moth like thing with a light at the point, but I selected triangle (for shape of craft) cause it's kind of like that but had the build of being bigger than I should of seen and it was terrifipying to realise and the shape was only visible occasionally and it was bigger than the main light entirely. Not boomerang shape, like the ones I tried to look for online to help with this. I'd say a moth but the type of body that is furry and it's just sat on your curtain chilling but almost letting its wings hang. Like a guitar pick too.

The bottom end was actually the lights trailing off and not disappearing but just being at the bottom.

I went inside and talked to housemate briefly who asked why I'd been outside so long, they said I'd been there about half an hour, I thought it was only cigarette length (they usually burn out after 5minutes), ran upstairs, switched off my lights and went under the curtains and watched the light thing for more.

Probably unrelated but I stopped because the police turned up with torches and started shining them into the field from the car park and then into my face and I got really angry and showed my face at not wanting light pollution and by the time they left I couldn't see the huge cloud-light-glow anymore.

I first went out around 18:15 cause I'd just come home from work. I put 1-3 for witnesses because there were two community support officers.

I live near an army camp which is one of the biggest in the country and is also particularly famous for its tank museum (cannot be differentiated between several in the country so this is OK to list)
