I was onboard the Thomson Marella Celebration cruise ship sat on the open deck of deck 6 at the stern of the ship, when a red light in the sky caught my eye. It appeared to move quite erratically. I initially thought it may have been a helicopter but the angle of trajectory didnít not fit entirely with that of a helicopter. The manner in which it halted and changed direction was too precise. I then considered it may be a drone but the light, in my opinion, was too bright and it appeared to be too large given the height in the sky from my standing position. Not to mention, there was no sound from rotor blades of engines. I had been watching for approx. 30 seconds, before I decided to film this, and also alerted my wife and friend to the object in the sky.
