How [on earth] does Mars look like a flare?

i'd rather it was reported and found to be a false alarm, than ignored and later found to be a boat in distress.
surely only an idiot would disagree with that.

The movement of Mars across the sky is imperceptible over the course of several minutes.
A flare is only visible, moving relatively quickly, for a matter of seconds.
I tend to agree with Weaver.   ;)

If you had had a few bevies before looking at Mars I suppose it might appear to be moving!

On further consideration of the news articles I think It would have to have been a report from the Isle of Lewis, so apologies to the people of Skye.
