First time poster to this sub.
I have two seperate sightings that I need some input on. The first happened two nights ago (Sept 15th, approx 2300h), while I was on-shift. I work security at a gold mine in a northern location within my province, currently on night shifts. When going out for a smoke, the nightshift kitchen staff were all outside and they were fixated on something directly above them. I went over to see what was "up", and they told me to look straight up and see if I could see anything moving. Sure enough, there was an object in the sky moving in all kinds of directions. Back and forth, up and down, doing little hook-like maneuvers. It was too far away to get any detail other than the fact that it was moving in a way none of us had seen before. The positioning of it i the sky was directly above us, and we all watched it do this for a good 30 minutes, before my neck couldn't take the strain anymore and I decided to go inside.
Second sighting was tonight (Sept 17th, approx 2245h). I was on my usual foot patrols of the bunkhouses when I saw a white-lit object flashing red intermittently. It looked to be about 100km away, at a 25 degree angle from my perspective. I stopped immediately to look at it, as it looked very out of place. I know the skies pretty good from working up here, and it caught my attention immediately. Sure enough, it was doing the same type of movements as the sighting from two nights ago. It even did loop at one point as well as back and forth, up and down etc. This time however, it was closer to the horizon, so my neck wasn't getting strained by looking at it. I went to a dark corner around the side of the bunkhouse with minimum light pollution and stared at it for about 20 minutes, then something strange happened. I slowly lowered my head as it moved downward, but for some reason kept lowering my head and it kept going down. I stopped lowering my head due to the upcoming obstruction from the rim of my hardhat, and it stopped moving as well.
I slowly started tilting my head upwards and it started moving upwards. I moved my head to the left and it moved to the left. I did this for about 3 minutes and then raised my hand and starting doing the same thing. I would move my hand upward, and it would move upward, sideways etc. It was mimicking my simple hand movements exactly until I stopped doing it.
The reason I stopped is because there were about 50 windows from the bunkhouse facing where I was standing, and I didn't want anybody seeing what I was doing, as I probably looked a bit off. After I went back inside to continue the bunkhouse patrols, I felt strange for about 10 minutes, like my perspective had a very mild hitchcock-effect. Another thing I should point out is that the northern lights were occuring on both of these sightings.
Just looking for input from this community. Thanks for reading.
