Hey all, I thought id update this Blog -
I attended a few rehearsals of an orchestra this month, as id promised myself that I would join an orchestra this year...OK june is a little late in the year but hey....
Anyway, it seemed ok... It was about a 45 minuite drive from my house, in Settle, Yorkshire, England (Translation - the middle of nowhere). I saw an old buddy from uni, and a group of us went to the pub after the rehearsal had finished. Anyway, I dont want to sound like a complete nutter but on my way home from the first rehearsal, at about 12 o'clock at night, I was driving home on a deserted country road, and saw 5 or 6 bright blue lights directly ahead, like you would see on a plane, but it was fairly close, no further than a mile away. After a few seconds I realised that it couldnt have been a plane, because it was hardly moving. Also it wasnt a helicopter because it was silent. After about 10 seconds I got a bit nearer and the object was a little closer. It was pretty much still, about 1000 metres away, and at tree top hight. The lights were pretty big and bright, but because it was pitch black, I couldnt really make anything else out. I carried on driving and some trees blocked my view, and I couldnt see it again after that. Anyway, if anyone has got any ideas about what it might have been, please write a comment because I cant explain it logically and its doing my head in!
John
