This seemed to be a rendezvous between the huge further away object and the smaller brilliant round flat object that flew over my head.December 23rd 2008. North Shields, North Tyneside, England. 21:20.I was walking home when an incredibly bright object flew over my head from approximately East North East to West South West. It was incredibly fast. It left a solid tail light behind which remained behind it. At first I thought it was a “shooting star” but as I stared at it I realized that it was not like any “shooting star” I had ever seen. It flew horizontally. It came to an abrupt halt and remained stationary. It was circular and flat (like a hockey puck) and incredibly brilliant and fast. There was no sound whatsoever.Then another object appeared sort of slowly. It was much higher up and much much bigger. It was odd shaped – seemed to be angular and outlined by pin prick lights. The centre of this object was in darkness. The pin prick lights got a little brighter and then the object hovered. Again there was no sound whatsoever.Both objects hovered for several seconds and then the brilliant “hockey puck” just vanished which took me by surprise and then I realized the other object had also vanished. The thought occurred to me afterwards that this was a rendezvous and the “Mother” ship had come for the reconnaissance craft. Does this sort of thing happen? The sky was black at the time with no stars visible. The weather was cold and dry. This was a residential built up area and as I walked home I saw few cars.I am retired, have lived in many places, travelled to many countries and camped in remote areas, and this is the first time I have ever encountered anything like this.I live about 15 miles from a small International Airport so I am used to seeing planes flying overhead or coming into land, both in daylight and in darkness. There is absolutely no way either one of these objects could have been any aircraft I have ever seen. I am also used to seeing Royal Air Force Jets fly at low level and at high speed as their base is in Northumberland (about 50 miles from me.)
