    strange ... theres alot of thundery activity tonight, lightening lighting up the skies from all quarters.

    my eye was drawn to an orange light in the sky, seemingly below the cloud base. it moved in a steady line, towards me, then stopped! held there for a few seconds, flickered then disappeard completely.

    now east mids airport is close by, but those lights were not the bright 'headlights' besides there was no red and green, nor flashing lights that adorn the wings and tail.

    i dont believe in aliens, well, not that have/are visiting us. what could have cause that lighting effect?.

    I'd suspect they were dead pixels on the camera sensor. For night time or dark exposures it's always best to take a dark frame (a shot with the lens cap on) before and after your shoot. You can then use software to eliminate these effects

    Thank you, just looked on net and yes there are a few examples with the same effect, no need to worry about alien abduction anymore.
