Several people witness a strange light that changed shape, direction and speed over Derry.

An object appeared in the sky to the West of the Creggan area in Derry city.

An orange light appeared to rise over the city, it was rectangular in shape. At first I thought it might be a firework as it was Halloween and there were a lot of fireworks that evening. The shape of the light source changed to make it appear like a fireball and it also changed direction and speed.

Other people, unknown to me and the person I witnessed the event with, had also witnessed the event and we watched it together. It lasted for about 1-2 minutes. We all agreed that that what we had witnessed was strange. I saw a similar event last year (2008) over Dublin, Ireland, however, no-one else witnessed this event.
