Strange light in the skyYesterday (Saturday 12th October 2002) at approximately 7:45pm UK time, me and my fiance was walking home after visiting one of his relations, when he noticed a starnge light in the sky. He pointed it out to me and we both observed it for aboout two minutes. We are both quite certain that it wasn't a helicopter/airoplane or a star.It was much bigger and brighter than a star. The movement it made was strange, it swayed from side to side and seemed to bob up and down. The light faded and got brighter whilst we watched it for about two minutes until it eventually just disapeared alltogether, but it did not move away, it just faded away. We both observed strange white beams of light coming of it that resembled a sparkler.The reason I have posted this message is that I felt I should share my sighting on this sight. Could somebody please shed some light on what I may have possibly seen.I live near to Sheffield in England. The strange light that I sighted was over Tickhill in South Yorkshire, England.((NUFORC Note: If the reported time is correct, the object was not the Space Station/Space Shuttle, which were rendezvoused on this date. They passed over at approximately 19:30 hrs. (local).
