Yes but that was a long time ago,after watching for some minutes it went out of view in seconds, clear night no light diffusion,and it was not a plane too high no sound :!:

oo-er - did either of you feel an urge to start making bad models of unusual rock formations out of breakfast or the kid's lego :twisted:

We often used to get a sonic boom on the South Devon-Cornish borders around 18:30H-ish when Concorde was on its way back to Heathrow (long, long time ago now of course) :)

Go and stand in the corner with your Pith helmet on young lady. :P

Could not afford the plasticine anyway being about 14/15 as I was out in the back garden star gazing, Astronomy being one of my hobbies then.

you can wiki project aurora and look at the conspiracy sites, some true some poppycock. aurora contrails are supposed to be like a set of beads on a string, its also supposed to be hypersonic upto mach 10.
theyve got some alleged pictures of it at groom lake and it was supposed to have been designed in the mid 70s. pictures on line show a flying wedge looks like an ultramodern vulcan. the air ram intake is massive. can you tell i like stuff like this :lol:

We got the Concorde boom to, as it was going supersonic & I think as it came out of supersonic also. It always happened at around 9 p.m.
I saw one taking off when staying with a friend who lives in North Ascot Berks. I was soooo excited, she said, "Oh! it's only Concorde". :shock: :? She saw it so often.
Best wishes,
Tiff

Concorde was one beautiful aircraft to see in flight! :D

My best ever sighting was of it at sunset from the top of a bus on Waterloo Bridge - the sky was all pink and darkish lavender and Concorde just glided over Waterloo Station... nearly everyone on that deck went OOOOOOOOOO! Magic! :P
