I saw a bright sec of light bobbing up and down in the night sky at around 11.00p.mLast night (12th) I was lying awake in bed at about 11.00p.m. listening to music and lying in my bed watching the stars(which i always do as my bed is next to my bedroom window) and i couldn't get to sleep. My window is facing eastwards. I suddenly saw a small light in the distance- it was like a tiny star-at first i thought it must be s star until it started moving. I then thought that it must be a meteor-but then this was wrong again because it started moving in a strange way-bobbing up and down in the sky and moving all over the place. Because of it's movement i deduced that it could not be a satellite or a meteor or a plane, helicopter or any other type of known aircraft -i have seen plenty of these in the night sky and it was not like any of those that i'd seen. It was not an illusion for certain- i was so curious that i switched the radio off, jumped out of bed and opened my window-and there it was-travelling across the sky! It was not extremely fast as it took quite a while for it to travel across the sky. It was a very bright object but also distant-so i coudn't quite make out what it was. It was the queer way in which it moved that puzzled me more than anything- sort of hovering and bouncing up and down! I watched it till it went out of sight-it was quite low in the sky when i last saw it. I have no idea as to what it was- but it definitely wasn't a plane,meteor or sattelite-so i thought that it could be a UFO.
