A strange flying object was spotted over Utrecht.

An eyewitness writes:

While walking with the dog, I watched the terns, because there was a beautiful cloudless sky. I saw two round lights flashing in a circle, constantly moving away. I assume it was a flying object with two round lights. 

It should be huge, I couldn't recognize the shape, but the way it moved slowly and silently was impressive... I've never seen anything like it.

I didn't have my mobile with me, but I took a picture of this place and drew on it myself what it looks like.

Original news

Raar vliegend object

UTRECHT, UT — Tijdens hond uitlaten keek ik naar de sternen omdat het een mooi wolkenloos hemel was. Ik zag twee ronde lichten, die in een cirkel blinken en zich constant weg bewegen. Ik naam aan dat het een vliegend object was met twee ronde lichten. Het moet reusachtig zijn, ik kon geen vorm herkennen maar de manier hoe het zich langzaam en zonder geluid bewoog was indrukwekkend...zo iets heb ik nog nooit gezien.
Ik had mijn mobiel niet bij me, maar ik heb een foto van de plek gemaakt en zelf daarop getekend hoe het uitzag.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence


Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs, also sometimes shortened as BLAH; colloquially sometimes referred to as "drone" or "drone" (from the English. drone — drone)) — aircraft without crew on Board. Created for aerial shooting, monitoring ground objects and other tasks in real time.

Distinguish UAVs for military and civil purposes.

Also they are divided into:

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.
