Flashing Lights in night sky come for second visit.It was a very clear night and I was out in my parents back garden watching the stars with 2 friends. We were actually talking about strange things we had seen in the sky over the past few years. I had only told them both about a time when I woke up at approximately 03.30 and for some reason went to the window of my bedroom and looked up to the left of my window and saw 3 very bright lights flash in the sky one after the other in a trianglular space apart. They were about as bright and large as a street light if it was about 100 metres away in the night. One flashe dthen a second later another and then another. I thought it was pretty mad and tried walking my girlfriend incase it happened again but nothing happened after that.So this night a few weeks back I was telling my friends this story. I know this sounds like pure bull buts it honestly isn't. I had told them my story and it was about 20 minutes later and I was facing both of them talking, when from roughly the same spot in the sky the same type of yellowy bright lights flashed again. Again they were from a north easterly direction and seemed to be the same distance apart. This time however there was only 2 of them. To give some idea of distance they were about the length of a standard pen apart if you held it at arms length from you and looked at the sky. There was no particular shape that I could make out.((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. PD))
