Was just walking back from the shops and noticed some weird green-ish lights in the sky. Was really confused for a bit like:

Aurora Borealis? In this part of the country?

It was just a light moving linearly in the sky. Took me a while to realise that I'm right next to Gatwick and that's the aircraft guidance light thing. I've been living here for years and that was my first time noticing it.

tl;dr: thought an alien invasion was taking place. turned out to be my local airport's landing/takeoff lights
