An eyewitness from the city of Zutphen writes:

Noticing the satellite while walking, I was distracted by something else, which seemed to be at the same height as the satellite: three bright, bluish-white, tiny points of light in a straight line, which alternately and regularly alternate with each other. 

The distance between the lights was about 3 centimeters (as far as can be estimated from the ground).

I have no idea if the three points of light were separate objects or part of an elongated whole. They slowly disappeared from view.

Original news

Drie op een rij

ZUTPHEN, GD — Terwijl ik tijdens een wandeling een satelliet spotte, werd ik afgeleid door iets anders op, zo op het oog, zelfde hoogte als de satelliet: drie heldere, blauwig witte, minuscule lichtpuntjes in een rechte lijn die afwisselend en met regelmaat onderling flitsten. De afstand tussen de lichtjes was ongeveer 3 centimeter ( voor zover te schatten vanaf de grond).
Geen idee of de drie lichtpuntjes afzonderlijke objecten waren of onderdeel van een langwerpig geheel. Ze verdwenen langzaam uit het zicht.

Balloons and balls

Balloon — aircraft (balloon), which is used for the flight gas, which is lighter than air.

Balloons - different sizes and shapes size toy, often made of latex. Is inflated with air or other gas. If the gas is lighter than air, the ball gains the ability to fly. The photo looks like a small dot. The colors and the opacity depends on the texture and color of the ball.


Due to the peculiarities of the bird's flight, it is possible to capture a moment in the photo when an ordinary bird will resemble a "classic" UFO in shape.


Ordinary satellites, which often look like single, not very bright luminous dots moving smoothly in the night sky, are quite often mistaken for UFOs. After the Starlink satellites (near-Earth satellite systems developed by SpaceX, in order to create a cheap and high-performance satellite Internet communication channel and technical transmitters for receiving and transmitting signals from earth and orbit) were launched, it became possible to observe groups of satellites (up to 60 pieces) flying one after another.
