Observer
NameKarl D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was travelling along the M65 heading east. The sky was clear and there were a few commercial aircraft visible at high altitude. This object caught my eye as it appeared slightly brighter than the other air craft, seemed to be twinkling and it seemed to pass close to one of the aircraft (visually aligned). It appeared to be moving across the sky 3-5 times faster than the aircraft and brightened slightly before disappearing.
