Lights in the Sky – Have you Seen a UFO Flash or Streak in the Night Sky?
Have you seen lights in the night sky recently? Or what you may think is a UFO flash, streak, or fly across the heavens in the dead of night?
If you have, read on!
First of all, VirtualAstro hasn’t gone all History Channel. Nor is the author of this article a closet believer in Ancient Aliens, Nibiru or the Lizard people.
If you are a believer in modern myths and conspiracies. You may get a little upset during the course of this article. Hopefully though, you will find it just as interesting, entertaining and enlightening as other readers.
Another thing I’d like to mention. Before we dive in and start discussing UFO lights, flashes and streaks across the sky. People are entitled to believe in what they want and have their own reasons for doing so. However, this article is actually a guide to describing what these lights, flashes, steaks in the sky and other UFO phenomena actually are.
Have you seen a UFO?
Many people if asked “have you seen a UFO?” will answer yes and quite rightly so! They have seen odd bright lights. Objects that flash and streak across the sky and other strange phenomenon. Are these UFO sightings? Yes they are.
Before you shout at your device and hit the back button. Keep reading a little longer. All will be explained using science and fact. We’ll put hysteria, superstition and beliefs aside for the moment.
Unidentified Flying Objects
When I was a child first starting out on my stargazing journey. I would look up at the night sky. I would see the regular night sky and occasionally there would be something different. Things would move. Lights would flash, streak, appear, disappear and so on. Sometimes these out of the ordinary unidentified flying objects would be accompanied by something making a noise in the bushes.
I would run indoors terrified! Locking the door behind me!
In my Child mind I had seen a UFO and there were Aliens in the bushes! Or so my imagination led me to believe. It didn’t help that I watched Close encounters of the Third Kind that Christmas.
Now I’ve been stargazing for over 30 years. I know I wasn’t seeing UFO’s. I now know exactly what these objects are. They are no longer Unidentified Flying Objects. They are really cool objects! However, I still run indoors when I hear things in the bushes.
If you don’t know what these lights, flashes, streaks and other phenomena are. Then to you, they are UFO’s – unidentified flying objects. We just need to identify them and understand what they are.
As an adult and experienced stargazer, I can easily say that I have never seen a UFO. I have been able to identify every light, flash, streak, flare, pop and object I have seen in the night sky. If I couldn’t identify or explain it straight away, I would research it and find out what it was. I do this all the time now and very little is unexplained and nothing is supernatural.
So what are these things in the sky?
Look up for a while on any clear evening and as well as stars and regular objects. You will see lights, streaks of light, flashes, things moving and more.
You can separate these objects into natural or manmade phenomena.
Natural Objects and Phenomena
Meteors, are pieces of space rock and dust that impact the Earth’s atmosphere. When this happens, friction between the atmosphere and meteor causes the meteor burn up in a flash or streak of light. We often romanticise this as a shooting star. Some meteors are tiny and barely noticeable, lasting a fraction of a second. Other larger meteors appear as bright fiery streaks of light across the sky. Otherwise known as fireballs or bolides. They can last a few seconds or longer depending on their size.
Meteors can be prolific at certain times creating Meteor Showers. They can also be sporadic bits of space rock that occasionally encounter the Earth’s atmosphere randomly. Meteors can be seen every night if the sky is clear.
To the uninitiated, a planet can easily be mistaken for a UFO. Venus and Jupiter probably being the most common culprits. They appear as bright lights in the sky all of a sudden to those who don’t stargaze regularly.
The word Planet is taken from the Greek word for wanderer. Planets can change position and move a fair amount over a short period. This can lead a person who doesn’t stargaze into thinking they are seeing a UFO. The sky is always changing and in motion. Therefore, changes in planet positions can appear alarming to some.
Weather and Space Weather
The weather can also cause all sorts of different effects on the sky. From Lunar to Solar halo’s. Sun dogs, Moon dogs, clouds, thunder storms and more. Many of these phenomena are easily noticed as some sort of atmospherics. Or otherwise known as atmospheric optics.
Space Weather is the direct effect of light or objects interacting with our atmosphere from space. These include, Aurora – Northern and Southern Lights caused by charged particles fro the sun. Noctilucent Clouds, Belt of Venus and even more caused by light interactions in the right conditions.
Man made Objects and Phenomena
Most lights in the sky. UFO sightings, streaks and flashes can certainly be attributed to manmade objects.
International Space Station
The International Space Station appears as a bright light moving across the sky. It can sometimes materialise out of nowhere. Or disappear in the same fashion. It does this as it leaves or enters Earth’s shadow depending on when and where it is in its orbit.
Satellites are usually fainter and can move in a similar fashion to the Space Station. In contrast, they can move at different speeds, directions and brightness. For the purpose of this article we will refer to everything humans have put into orbit as satellites. Some are actual communications, science, or military satellites. Some are bits of space junk. Spent rocket bodies, satellite fairings, rocket motors etc.
Some of this space junk de-orbits occasionally and can be seen as a spectacular fireball with the debris burning up as it falls through the sky.
Many satellites cruise happily around the planet fixed in their attitude. Appearing as a faint or sometimes even brighter points of light moving across the sky. Some however tumble or spin as they move. These are usually rocket bodies or bizarre or broken satellites orbiting the earth. Due to their tumbling or spinning, they can flash or pulse as they reflect sunlight from various surfaces as they move. Some can materialise and light up the sky for a few seconds. These are iridium satellites. Famous for the soon to be ended iridium flares.

Satellites can be solitary or can travel with friends. Some have no relation to the other and can cruise through the sky together and can also cross paths. Like celestial ships passing through the night. A few satellites form “constellations” of satellites with two or more satellites in a group moving across the sky. One particular group forms a triangle and really does look like a straight out of the box area 51 UFO. Worth looking out for! Don’t call the police if you see it though. You’ll look silly.

Aircraft are usually distinguishable from everything else due to different colour flashing lights. However, the lights from aircraft especially landing lights seen from a distance can be mistaken for a UFO. Because of the intensity of the lights, the aircrafts other blinking/ flashing lights can be obscured. This can fool the observer into thinking its a solid moving light. If you live in an area with busy flight paths, you may see multiple aircraft dancing low in the sky together. Sometimes these groups if seen from the right direction, look like they are hovering and interacting with each other. Many UFO reports have been made due to this, but in the end it was air traffic.
Multiple aircraft as described above – via youtube
Everything Can be Explained
If you take the time to study the night sky. Familiarise yourself with it and your surroundings. You will certainly understand the motion and behaviour of the sky and the objects in it.
As I said above, I have seen lights in the sky, flashes, meteors streaking, satellites, space junk and more. But I have never seen an actual UFO.
Are there Aliens? Are there real UFO’s?
I have never seen one, however I am open minded and would like to think there is extraterrestrial life in the Universe. You can count on it!
I hope they are friendly.

On a cloudless, quiet Summer night I was stargazing at a property on the outskirts of town, sitting on a patio surrounded by low trees. The night sky was filled with bright points of light! Facing East, I noticed a bright star low to my right then saw it was moving in a slow steady arc across the sky. I realized it must be a satellite. I took special note, thinking it was ‘cool’ as I’d never seen one before. It continued North to the treeline where to my surprise, it paused, then reversed course! I realized it could not have been a satellite and wondered what it was; watching it move silently back across the sky. When it reached a point overhead, it again paused then streaked East like a bright bullet disappearing in a fraction of a second. No sound. No sonic boom. Nothing but the quiet buzz of insects as I sat there wondering what I’d just seen. I’ve not seen anything like it since.
Hi, I’m from England/Bristol and this happened 5 years ago now. I was sat outside smoking a cigarette star gazing when I noticed long cloud with a bold light underneath it, for a moment I took it as the moon behind it but realised I already could see the moon over the opposite side of the sky. Then started pulsing and from underneath drifted 4 small cloud filled with light, they started drifting around eachother making sure they did not touch. I was completely terrified and genuinely so startled I tried calling whoever I could with no response and thought I couldn’t of been the only one to of noticed this. This carried on for I reckon 20 odd minutes til they drifted back towards the bottom light of the cloud (still pulsing as each would float inside) and as all entered, it literally backed away and vanished out of the sky. I have done everything I can think of to rationally explain this, but I can’t. It’s so embedded in my mind and would love to know if anyone has any ideas at all!
hi, i,m from south west England, ( devon ) looking at the sky last night i was hoping i could see the northern lights, twice i saw a strange whiteish object. imagine a white bed sheet in the night sky. i saw the first one in a roughly north north west direction, it lasted about 3 seconds, and it was moving fast then disappeared, last night was clear skies. then again at about 1.30am i was looking at the skies again hoping to see the northern lights , i was just giving up when i saw the same type of object this time it appeared from no-where and went in a roughly north east ish direction . it lasted only about 1- 1.5 seconds then disappeared .again no clouds
I have a ring camera in my front garden and over the past couple of months it will notify me of motion. When I look at the video feed I can see small clear round objects flying around at slow and fast speeds. They are not moths as you can see clearly moths and small insects. They fly low and very high and yet when I go outside I cannot see anything.
Last night my dog kept barking and wanting to go outside. When I looked on the video feed you could see these objects flying around and at one point the camera stops and you can see the round object and there is like a vapor trail behind it. But they are so small. Any ideas?
Just wondering, one night i was standing on my deck at night, i was looking thru the trees toward Mt Redoubt in Alaska. I seen a light in the sky moving, i know it was not an airplane, i watched it for several seconds the there was a bright flash and it was gone. Just that one time. Don`t know if it was a UFO or not. Has anyone seen something like that?
Could you explain a sudden very large bright flash of light (like a camera flash) through our window. The day was fine with not a cloud in the sky. It was about 3.40pm in the afternoon. Our house window is about 2 meters from the ground and the light was white and filled up the room. There was no sound it appearred for about Two seconds. As it was a lockdown there was no car or any activity and our property is on a high hill overlooking the city. My husband and I immediately checked out side there was nothing there.
Last night around midnight, I was looking out my bedroom window when I saw a bright, white light, about the size of a softball, slowly coming down just over my neighbors roof, approximately 90 ft. from me. I didn’t see where it came from but it seemed to be moving too slow to be something falling from the sky. The night was mostly clear, no storms or anything and I heard no sound. Tonight I went to where I assumed it “landed” and found a transformer box located on the ground. I asked around but no one saw anything. The only other thing I noticed was that at the house near the transformer, the motion detector lights came on and off quite a few times during the night after I saw the light.
On the morning of 02/08/2021 at 0606-0609 hr PST a string of sequential lites appeared over the cities of Covington, Black Diamond in direction of NE to SE(ESE) magnetic. The lites came in single and groups. Each lite came on by its self, much like sending morse code. Unable to tell if a sound was generated as this is a active time of day for Sea-Tac airport. The string of lites disappeared slowly starting from the tail and going to the horizon of the Cascade Mountains to the East of me.
These were SpaceX Starlink Satellites. They are becoming a more and more common sight as more are launched.
Just saw a wide white streak with a flash at the end over Kennebunk , ME around 1:05 am.
One time I was in Medina TX and was asleep. In the middle of the night I went to go and charge my phone. When I went to bed I was staring outside of the window trying to go back to sleep again. All of a sudden I was a flash of bright white light pass my window quickly. This was no meteor because it was ground level. It couldn’t be a car since there was a lake and a mountain in the direction it was going. Everything was bright when the flash of light passed and got dark. Everyone was asleep and it was a two story house so that big of a light was enormous. The houses are so far apart and a car would be heard but there was no noise of a car just a big whoosh and it was gone. I say it was a UFO but idk I just want someone to tell me what this is.
I just seen a streak of light as i walked outside for routine walk before i go to sleep and only lasted for a few moments, out of the corner of my eye i could see a streak of light i looked up i seen a wide streak coming over not far from me and travelling upwards then it looked to just fizzle to nothing no sound it was real.
Okay here’s the story. It was in 1977 and as I went to bed thinking about going for a run for tomorrow, I saw a flash which I thought maybe a thunderstorm so I went to the window to look for lightning. I waited for some time and didn’t see any but saw a tiny light flicked in the trees. Then two small white objects emerged in the sky above the trees and they were from a distance. They moved very slowly across the sky going directly to our house. I find it odd they went straight to our house but why not go sideway or over there toward the other way? They were small white oval objects high up in the sky. One object’s light came on and paused and off then on the other side the other object’s light came on and paused and off and they went back and forth as if they were communicating to each others (?). Or was it one object going between both sides but I believe it was two objects on both sides. I couldn’t see anything in between the white objects. It was pitched black. There were only two objects all the way slowly flashing white light on and off and they looked the same. The objects appeared bigger as they moved toward our house and they looked like they were going over our roof. As they got over our house I ran to outside to get a further look and I couldn’t find them, the trees blocked the view. Anyway I don’t think any helicopter or plane can move very slowly like that. I believe that is UFO. Don’t you think?
I’d really like an explanation to this, as I am clueless of what happened.
So basically one clear night I saw a MASSIVE flash like lightning over my conservatory, there was no noise or rain just a big flash, it covered my entire conservatory roof, my mother from the other side of the house saw it too thats when I went to the conservatory itself and saw a star, flashing and going off then flashing I also saw another flash that was in the sky but it was alot smaller than the first one.
Reading this gave me chills because I experienced the Exact same thing Im a stoner so a lot of the time I sit in my car late night to smoke and last week I seen the biggest burst of light come from the sky.. I honestly thought it was lighting and it was so big and sudden I actually flinch really hard assuming thunder was gonna follow immediately after with more lighting but nothing it was silence and not a cloud in site I was so confused and scared I had to call someone on ft just to walk from my car back to my apartment. Then light night I was sitting in my carand it was so weird..it’s almost like they wanted me to see it because I was looking down at my phone but kept seeing flashes of light reflecting off my stealing wheel but everything I would look around there was no one passin by and it was 1 am I live in Santa Monica so it’s rare to just have ppl walking around the neighborhood late night it’s always very quite anywhoo I didn’t think anything of it and kept playing my music then I had finally sat my phone down and was just sitting back relaxing and then just as sudden as the first I seen anything flash of light but it wasn’t as bright as the first time.. a lot more dimmed and I immediately reached to turn down my radio and rolled down my window waiting to see if I could hear thunder again….nothing. So then Did some light research on lighting and thunder to find out u can have lighting without thunder but you can’t have thunder without lighting so I thought to myself ok then that’s the end of it.. it was lighting. But then I seen the flash again and now I’m scared so I looked up “flashes in sky” a bunch of UFO forums popped up? I texted a friend to let her know what was going on just incase of anything then suddenly my phone died I thought to myself how could my phone die when it was just on 20% but I had been sitting my car on YouTube so it would of just drained it . I started to panic cause now Im all alone and my phone is dead but thank god a car was coming down the road so I took that opportunity once he stopped at the stop sign in front of me to run in the house ?
Tonight I saw something I have never seen before. Usually when I am in my Jacuzzi in the garden I look up at the night sky and see a plethora of stars. I often see comets or shooting stars, or satellites, so I am used to seeing such objects over many years of observation.
Tonight though I saw what I initially thought to be satellite at very high altitude. Nothing usual, but I did think it was travelling at high speed, far quicker than normal. Then, behind it I saw another identical object, moving at exactly the same speed and following exactly the same line. Then behind that I saw another, maintaining the exact same distance between it and the object in front of it, again following the same line. Then another. and another. And another. All at the same speed, the same height, the same distance apart and all following the same line. I lost count after 14 of these things. I ran into the house to get a witness, when I came back we both saw another two. So I guess around 20 in total.
I have absolutely no idea what they were. Military? Maybe, but they were all moving extremely fast. And no sound. I am in Sussex, UK and they were moving from North East to South West, around 19.00 hrs or so.
You were seeing recently launched internet satellites. Either SpaceX Starlink or OneWeb. This will become a more familiar sight in the future as more are launched. Up to 30,000 of them
Yeah I saw over 80 of the last night above northern CA. Moving east.
That was spaced telecommunication satellites all over the news was inSD in a jacuzzi on vacation out with the grandkids we we all said what the he’ll is that we got a little freaked for sure and this was befor they all stretched out
At about 07.30 hrs on 30th November 2019 I was looking up to the night sky. I usually try to spot the space station passing over . However on this morning I thought I was watching the space station. A small shiny light travelling at speed across the sky, until I saw another identical light following and then another and another and so on. I counted around 22 in total. They were all travelling on the same trajectory and were spaced fairly equadistantly apart from each other. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Does anyone have any idea what these were. Thanks.
Yes, these are Starlink Satellites. There are literally thousands and thousands of them planned to be sent into orbit. This could be a major problem for stargazing and astronomy.
About 5-10 years ago I, my partner, and son all witnessed a similar site to the above described siting: we saw many lights low in the horizon late one cold Wisconsin night. The lights were small white, uniform in size, and made no sound as they travelled low across the horizon. They streamed across the sky from south to north at a uniform, non variable speed and the space between the lights varied but the position remained fixed as the lights traveled. The space between the lights never varied. The lights streamed past for about 20 minutes so there must have been well over 100 and possibly as much as a thousand. I remember thinking (it was close to Christmas) the lights could be Amazon drones delivering packages for the holidays. The lights just kept coming and coming… As soon as I called the local TV station which was located just up the hill form my home so I assumed they might also see the lights, the lights stopped.
A thousand internet satellites launces at one time? Seems unlikely. Any other ideas?
On Sunday evening 5.35 I saw 3 bright golden lights coming from the North East flying straight towards Heathrow. We see lots of aircraft, Military and civilian, fixed wing and helicopter so quite familiar with aircraft lights and behaviour. Indeed their were several in sight during this sighting. Our the first group had gone there were up to a dozen more over the next 10 minutes. All flew in the same direction and at the same speed, some were singles and some in pairs, though some seemed lower than the others. The light was similar to that from a hot air balloon burner, but very constant. No sign of the red and green lights on a normal plane. There was absolutely no noise. The speed was about the same as military helicopters, though the flight path was at a right angle to most flights. Have lived in the house for 8 years and have never seen sight like this
Comments I saw a bright light with no flashing red lights pass over Leominster tonight 10- 5- 19 at 7:19 then it just burnt out. Anybody else see this?
On Thursday night, June 20th 2019 I say an object below the handle of the big dipper that was to small to make out a shape or size. I saw it flashing a white light that was similar to an airplane. It was odd tho because the flashes were not flashing in a pattern like an airplane does so it got my attention. Then I realized this object wasn’t moving in a direct flight path like a plane or satellite would do. This object would move in one direction, then jump to another area, up down left right… it moved in all directions but stayed in a tight area. The flashing lights as I said were similar to an airplane however they started getting massively bright and flashing more then it would dim down again. This object would move all over and back to where it started. Eventually this think lit up in a big burst and took off headed west leaving a quick streak of light and then disappeared. This was definitely NOT an airplane, satellite, weather ballon or Iridium flares. What it was I don’t know but I do know what it wasn’t.
That sounds very interesting and exciting for you to witness.
I saw an object tonight flashing inconsistently as Dan’s previous post described. Seemed like every time the flash was the brightest, the object would move in zig zag sort of fashion, very quickly. The object seemed to bounce around a certain flight path, and maintain some sort of course. The course of travel changed dramatically from first sighting to when the object was too far to see. The course changed around 22.5 degrees at least three times. I have seen planes in the sky all my life. Been out many nights fishing, camping, and shift work. I have seen the space station, satellites, meteors, space junk, and even re-entry of a NASA space shuttle. This is nothing I have seen as an active stargazer, always looking up at night. This is something at grabbed my attention quickly. I would describe the brightest of the flashes before dimming back down as that of a white colored welding arc. Extremely bright. The way it zig zagged instantaneously astonishes me. It just zipped so fast between points. This was done in spurts. Also, to add, the rate of travel far exceeded any jet or satellite I have seen. This thing covered a great distance in a matter of a minute or two. The rate of speed was largely inconsistent, but very fast, during the duration of the sighting. The rate didn’t appear to be constant. Glad to know someone saw something similar.
I’ve seen the same thing… I’m at a loss… The zig zag… You describe what I saw perfectly… I like to think I have a fairly strong understanding of conventional physics… This sight has made me question all of this…
I have seen the same thing in the night sky. However I don’t remember flashing. The “star” was stationary one moment then zipped to the left and right, hoovered some more, zipped around in other directions. It was angular in movement, right angles and super fast speed. My daughter and I watched this for a couple of minutes before it shot out of sight. I think it stays stationary at times to blend in with the other stars in the sky.
Definitely the behaviour of aircraft many tens of miles away moving toward you then turning sharply. I watch this all the time from my location. It’s quite fascinating and definitely something worthy of a UFO if you don’t know what you are looking at 🙂
This is literally almost exactly what I witness and I thought the same. At first it caught my attention because it was beaming really bright, I thought I could of been a really low bright star but it started moving about but not like an airplane. It’ darted about and shot up into the air and disappeared. What could this be?
Just over a year ago I saw an object in the night sky whilst at a friends house.
It was quite low in the sky. At times I could see its shape.
It remained in view for about 2 to 3 hours.
Varying its path at very high and very low speeds . Up down, left right and diagonally.
Spinning at times , static at times. When further away spinning it displayed various and continually changing colours. When closer just two red lights.
It remained within my field of vision . Quarter to twelve to quarter past twelve, from static to very very high speeds. Directions as aforementioned. Static only when at lowest height.
Witnessed by my friend .
Following night I saw it again at another friends house. Right above their house.
I have since seen it numerous times from my house.
I have filmed it on my mobile phone.
It will at times appear to explode whilst spinning the the colours dissapear with just one much smaller central white spinning object.
It then moves at an incredible speed and dissapears. It then returns from a different place in the sky . Then a reversal of its dissapearing process occurs.
The explosion reverses!
I have all this on film. Upon enlarging the object on film and slowing the film right down ,much more of the process can be seen . Mind bending . This is the first time I have shared any of this publicly.
There is more information about the sightings . Ive not included them as I have no record on film to support the information.
I live in Aberdeenshire Scotland. I saw just a bright flash of light quite large . It wasn’t car lights. It’s the brightest white light I’ve ever seen. Can you give me an explanation?
Unfortunately no. I would need much more information to make a guess to what it was. The usual suspects are meteors or space junk, but without seeing it, it’s impossible to say
Well I saw a formation of lights in the sky over Birmingham a few years ago, at 10.30 at night. As I watched, they gradually disappeared one by one. I spoke to the Airport and no planes were in that area at the time and they sent my email to the M.O.D. who also told me that there were no military jets there that night… It was not meteors, planets, space stn etc… Still remains a mystery.
Definitely a constellation of satellites!
Ahahha You are too funny.. can you explain this.. I asked in telepathically to aliens to show me a sign and it flashed a bright light at me from no where, then I thought maybe it was luck then from another place where I just looked it gave me a same light and then ufos started to appear going around and was faster than any airplanes. Are you working for government to hide ufo proof or are you just that skeptical cause you haven’t actually really seen one?
When I wrote this article I knew it would attract some very special people. Congratulations! You are the first one.
Did it mimic your body movements at any time Christian? For example, if you walked forwards, backwards, left , right and varying your pace slow to fast?
Last night I saw rapid flashing mostly green and white lights and it was in the sky and it was hovering quite close but I couldn’t see much of the shape but the light that came of I could see above the light the shape of a semi circle could somebody tell me was it real

The one I have seen numerous times and filmed behaves in the same manner.
So me and my husband saw something very strange around 530pm ish
An oval bright light admittedly there is cloud cover but this light zig zagged like it was hovering over quite a large area, moving its course further to the left in the same fashion. This went on for a few minutes and then it just simply disappeared.
So strange but it was nothing we have witnessed before.
We are totally spooked.
Interesting article, thanks for sharing and I love the videos you linked to.
Fyi, small typo 2 paragraphs before ISS – I was born to proofread!
I never told any of this but in 2015 I was in my backyard having a smoke at about 1AM when I just looked up into the clear night sky when sudenly an object moved across the sky. It just appeared and was visible for a second and then just disappeared into the midnight sky. I was doubting myself, did I really just see what I saw when out of the exact same spot heading in the same direction another super fast moving object appeared and disappeared in the same spot as the previous one. I have seen many objects in the night sky but this is something which today still has me feeling unsettled.
I am super confident that those objects were not man made.
