In a clear sky the Star shone bright with what appeared to be white glowing fireflys buzzing aroung it.I got up to let the dog out at 2.20am. I looked up into the sky as it was a clear night and my vision was drawn instantly to a star in the sky. I cannot say why I was drawn to it initially but as a looked I became aware of the sensation it was moving vertically up and down. I thought it was because I was tired, but then around 4 or 5 little lights appeared like fireflys buzzing around the bottom half of the object for around 20 seconds and then disappeared. The 'star' was unlike any other in the sky, it did not have a constant light and the only way I can describe it was as if it was revolving. There then appeared a horizontal light at the bottom of the 'star' very vividly. This lasted about 10 - 15 seconds. It did this on 2 occasions. The firefly objects appeared around 4 times. By this stage I could not believe what I was seeing and I fled to get the camcorder. Unfortunately, by the time I got ready the sky had clouded and there was nothing more to see.
