Message from witness to BEAMS
I'm shaking as I write this:
Twenty minutes ago I was out in the back garden putting rubbish in the wheelie bin at 11.55pm, to the left were a few stars, and one was distant but very bright and caught my attention.
It was white, but it's movement was what I've been waiting for all my life. The light darted from left to right constantly, at arms length, darting about thumb size across the sky.
It would stop, and then dart about again.
I grabbed the camera and took two shots but it was too distant for it to show up on the viewfinder.
I went in again to try to find the vid camera to no avail, so I just went back out to watch it zoom left and right, go down, zoom up, then in a flash disappear into the heavens.
The hairs on the back of my neck were standing up and my heart was pounding.
Nothing on God's earth could do these maneuvers.
This was not a lazer light from some park concert.
The unidentified orange lights that I witnessed previously have always followed a constant flight path, or variations of it, but never something so visually freaky as this white light.
I knew I was witnessing the real deal.
