Light hovering silently in skyI was on my way to my local pub, when i noticed a flashing red light in the sky. Not being far from the coast I presumed it was a coast guard helicopter, however it made no noise and was just hovering. I joked with some mates in the pub that a police helicopter was outside to arrest them and they came out to have a look. It was now about 20 mins since i first saw the light and it was still in the same place in the sky. We stood and watched it for about 10 mins but got bored as all it was doing was hovering. It was still in the same place at 23:30 when we left the pub several other people stopped to look but it didn't move or make a sound.((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether a celestial body might have been the cause of the sighting, but that is only surmise. We recommend the witness look in the same area of the sky at approximately the same time of night and establish whether the object is visible again. Witness elects to remain totally anonymous. PD))
