A reflective round object is seen over The Hague.

On April 5, 2024, at about 23:00. I was standing in the garden and looking straight up. There I saw the rays of light from the fair against the dark sky. They were flying through the sky. Directly above me, they flashed brightly, as if reflecting off a reflective object.

The "object" did not move, had a round shape, much larger than a star, about a tenth of the full moon, was faintly visible behind thin clouds, but as soon as the ray of light passed by, it became brighter. It took a while, and after 1 minute I went inside.

Fifteen minutes later, I went outside again, and this phenomenon no longer existed. The rays glided unhindered across the sky. The stars are still in the same place. (Polux, Castor, etc.)

Original news

Een lichtweerkaatsend rond voorwerp

DEN HAAG, ZH — 5 april 2024 ca 2300 stond ik buiten in de tuin en keek recht omhoog. Daar zag ik de lichtstralen van de kermis tegen de donkere hemel. Zij scheerden langs de hemel. Recht boven mij flikkerden ze fel op alsof ze werden teruggekaatst tegen een spiegelend object. Het 'object' bewoog niet, had een ronde vorm, veel groter dan een ster, zeg maar een tiende of zo van een volle maan, was flauw zichtbaar achter dunne bewolking maar zodra de lichtstraal erlangs gleed werd het feller. Dit duurde een tijd en na 1 minuut ben ik naar binnen gegaan. Een kwartier daarna was ik weer terug naar buiten en het verschijnsel was er niet meer. Ongehinderd flitsten de stralen langs de hemel. De sterren nog alle op dezelfde plaats. (Pollux, Castor e.a)
