This event happened on the Friday evening of February 24, 2006. I was returning from a museum visit with my girlfriend when I noticed a couple of strange white lights close to the horizon. I glanced at that a few times and noticed that they didn’t look normal at all. My girlfriend noticed them as well and we were trying our best to figure out what they were. They looked like two almost straight lines, close to a crescent moon maybe and they were extremely bright. They were moving a little back and forth in the sky and they looked like they were very far away, but looked very large. There were a few dark clouds above them, very thin in an otherwise crystal clear sky. We went through a drive-thru to get a coffee and I phoned my brother to go outside and take some pictures. While I got my coffee the objects were out of sight and we could not see them for about five minutes max. When we were back on the road one of them had disappeared, completely. The sky was a dark blue all around and we could see no trace. One was still there however, still bright as it was previously. As we drove westward towards my home we saw the object slowly move up towards the thin piece of patchy dark cloud above. It moved slowly towards it until it vanished behind. (The cloud was very sparse and very thin, yet the brightness completely vanished.) I continued to watch it and suddenly my girlfriend pointed out an object which was rising from the top of the cloud. This object was not bright however like the previous one, it was black and looked like it was extremely high and moving extremely fast. It looked like a giant 'V' shaped object and was moving higher and higher above the clouds. It was still slightly light outside at the point, enough to see the object fairly well. It did not look like a plane, maybe it was, but I still wrestled with its shape and the apparent speed in my mind. I got to my home and ran inside to get a camera as my girlfriend kept watch. My brother had not seen it, he looked in the completely wrong direction! Either way, I ran outside with the camera and it had just vanished. My girlfriend said it looked like it just went so high it was out of view. We both are still trying to look at this rationally but the objects we so strange looked and acted so strangely we are having a hard time arriving at any concrete conclusion. If anyone else in Cornwall has seen this I would more than love to compare our experience, it truly was odd.
