Was Peterborough being watched by aliens on this Monday evening? A strange light, described as being similar to that from a window, passed quite low and silently over Peterborough from the east. It then rose steadily until the light was no more than that of a small star. Some time later, it was seen to have descended again, travelling back the way it came. Strange - very strange.
