Strange object over Poland's Silesia

About 10 minutes ago, my girlfriend called me over to take a look outside:
there was a strange light just sitting in the sky, it almost looked like it was aflame.
Now ten minutes later there are at least 6 planes criss-crossing over that area.
Anyone else notice this?

Nothing on dlapilota, but it sounds like a flare. Are you close to a military base?

Which part of Silesia, For4? If it were Gliwice, I may be able to see it, esp given my 180x100 binoculars :)

It could be a jet fighter dumping fuel and igniting it...

it was all just finishing up as I was typing. I guess it was more around 15 min. prior to my typing it.
The initial light was odd, given the perceived distance from where I am it must have been quite large (comparing also to the jet that appeared later) but it didn't seem to move. I went back to cooking then when I went back to check it was gone but jets were criss crossing the area. The 2 that were closest to my location appeared to be the same and crossed very very close to eachother- there's no way, with the amount of available airspace that commercial pilots would do that.

Maybe the Russians attacked us! Let's turn on tv! ;DDDD

Did you record it? Maybe post it on YT and ask people whether they've seen it...

I was in Gliwice in the city centre at that time haven't seen anything unusual.. just drunk people and mental drivers ; o

Yup, I can confirm that, frd ;) ;)

If I saw a strange object, I would wonder if I was still high or hallucinating. Nope, all black tonight.

So was it this x37b thing then...or has it not been explained yet...?
