I've had a few over the years.Recent one was on the Thames, it was a clear night, plenty of stars and I noticed what looked like a star dancing all over the place like a humming bird and then just shot off into the night sky...
Me and my mate saw something very similar over the Thames last season. It looked like a shooting star but it zigzagged a bit and then disappeared.

We've also seen some amazing shooting stars. Some of them so bright that they light up the fields all around you like lighting would. That's the beauty of being out away from all the light pollution - you never would notice these things from a lit street.

Whilst fishing the Lower Severn a few years ago on one late afternoon, i noticed a strange erratically moving dark object, sort of cigar shaped that hovered, and then moved at great speed to another position , this went on for some time, until it sped off in a vertical movement.....I wasnt the only one to see it, after a short time two RAF Typhoons as if they were looking for it screeched across the sky and flew around the area for a good twenty 20 minutes covering the sky inch by inch or so it seemed.....very odd and unexplainable.

That's what we suspected at the time Alex, Something to do with the American Base

Could well be Mark, it was a nuclear base after all.

Think the main reason they are banned now because of fires.

Banned? Only on council land and property in some areas as far as I can see. Show me the official ban, Iain.
