After a facebook friend posted about lights in the sky in yorkshire i went outside to see if it was the predicted meteor shower as news reports said shooting stars should be visible(which i've seen before like a streak flash across the sky) when facing south i watched a star like object moving from east to west for about a minute then fade about half way across the sky. i then saw another going in the same direction followed by about four or five travelling in the opposite direction from my west to east one at a time . objects were visible for about a minute each and were of varying brightness ranging from not as faint as the faintest star to not as bright as venus which has been visible recently. the sky was perfectly clear and i thought it was unusual as i regularly watch the stars and being under a flight path i would say they looked nothing like any aeroplane i've seen before. also with it being lockdown i've not seen a plane in the sky for ages.I stood on my doorstep to see if could spot any more but saw nothing for the following 30 minutes. i tried to video the lights but was unable to focus on them with only my phone camera at hand. a very interesting experience.
