Object Flight Path
Path with directional change
Looking out of my living room window up the bristol channel towards the second adverb crossing. I saw an object bright white like the space station as it passed over to just above the horizon in about 60 secs it got smaller with distance but did not fade out . it reached just above horizon then it turned gracefully right as it drifted away, like a curved trajectory while keeping a low altitude just above the town lights of what must be almondsbury or further north. It was not a plane. Too bright, no sound and not landing lights as I saw mostly from the rear of it's path. No strobing navigation lights. Just like a bright white star. Only posting here due to the fact it changed course so can not be a satalite either. My girlfriend witnessed the latter part of the observation and direction change. Clear skies no other traffic in the sky.no clouds I could make out . Some clouds on horizon. Completely silent event.
