I have always been passionate about observing the night sky.

For about ten days, I have regularly seen dots of light which, at first motionless, then move at lightning speed, then stop suddenly and start again at the same crazy speed in a different direction, stop again and then vanish. And this several times in the night and every night.

Description of the facts:

I have always been passionate about observing the night sky.

For about ten days, I have regularly seen dots of light which, at first motionless, then move at lightning speed, then stop suddenly and start again at the same crazy speed in a different direction, stop again and then vanish. And this several times in the night and every night.

Discussion:

Map.

It looks as if there were multiple repeated observations; but the witness apparently did not seek to film or photograph the phenomenon, nor to ask other people to attend it and testify about it.

And his information is unfortunately very meager, leaving me only the option of characterizing this as "unidentified, totally insufficient information."

Evaluation:

Unidentified, totally insufficient information.
