Default Ufo?

Just went out for a 3am walk (as one does) and I saw this very odd thing in the sky. A point of light, sorta orangey in hue (like a domestic light bulb on low power, or a candle), going vertically upwards. It wasn't a plane, for a start it would have been going horizontally if it was... and it was sitting just above the clouds (you could see some clouds go over it, but it went under others). It went up and sat there for a while, and then stopped. From here it looked like it had a tail, not unlike a rocket, going downwards, but I couldn't see any exhaust (but then it is dark, it'd be hard to see it if it was there).

It was in the direction of London, I'll give a heading in a moment.

Heading about 110 from High Wycombe.

Noticed it about 03:04AM GMT. I'm going to sleep now.

Maybe it's the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER?

Oh, wait . . . Nevermind. I'm having Zappa flashbacks. . . .

You couldn't identify it, it was flying, and it was some sort of object. It seems to fit the three main requirements for a U.F.O. (Unidentified Flying Object).

It was DEFINATLEY one of those jarcher! It's no longer a UFO!

Very odd indeed... I'm guessing a few other people saw it (my area is fairly densely populated), which is why I posted here when I saw it, or I'd just forget.

I'm starting to think it might have been a satelite or somthing burning up, with the intention to break up over the atlantic. Maybe. Very odd. It wasn't a plane in any case.

FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR RELIVES!!!!!! WOOOOOOHHOOOOOOO!!!!!

j/k...I've definately seen things in the night sky like that, and it most definately makes you wonder!!!!!

Don't count on the government to tell you what it is even if they do find it!! They wouldn't know how to tell the truth if the instructions were painted on their forehead!!!!!!

Fireworks, maybe?.... Sometimes one can see space junk incinerating. Maybe it was just a plot to keep Goldy awake?

I do the 3 a.m. walk thing at times too, LoL. In fact, it's the wee hours of the morning, as I type, eh.

I think it might have been the ISS, you know.... I saw it again last night about 11pm. I'll have to check up and see if it would be visible from where I am at that time.
