Strange Flashing light out over the English ChannelAt roughly 19:52 i glanced out my bedroom window which is at the front of my house facing south and i glanced up at the sky to see a star. Then as i watched i noticed that it was changing colour, Blue, Red, Green, White and repeating in a random order. At first i thought thats weird lights for a plane, i noticed that it wasn't moving it was hovering. I then thought it must be a helicopter, living in Naval town often the Fleet Air Arm or Royal Air Force are doing maneuvers in the Solent or English Channel with the Royal Navy. I watched for several minutes and ran downstairs to when i got back it hadn't moved at all still flashing away. It was way to high to be a distant helicopter or Coast Guard Copper.I then took one photo on my digital camera but in the dark and with 10x zoom plus another 6.9 digital zoom it was out of range but still you can see the weird colours (ish) i then took two film clips of it and although not being able to see the change of colour you can see it changes shades of white. Then the other observer came back from outside, he'd just been driving and hadn't been drinking all day neither had i. He observed it and commented how strange it was. Skipping forward sometime after 20 minutes i went to have dinner and came back to find that it had moved from right to left and was getting higher then at 20.29 it finally disappeared by the building opposite.
