My camera phone didn't work out as nicely as I hoped for... infact I don't think it worked at all.
We've had some guest over the house for the past week, and my dog wasn't acting to friendly towards them tonight... I decided to take the dog out,
to let him calm down abit, and take care of his "business". While the dog sniffed around, I looked up at the sky like I normally do, and scanned the
skies. When I looked directly over my house (West) I saw a solid green light, heading north.
The light was moving pretty fast, but I thought nothing of it, and just watched it as it kept on going in it's direction. As it went north, it
suddenly out of no where just started heading south. It seemed to be gaining altitude as well. The second I saw it make that move I freaked out, and
my arm hair stood up. I watched it for a little bit longer (about 45 seconds). It was continuing to head south... We own a meade 4501 telescope but
this thing was moving so fast I figured I would've had a hard time spotting, and focusing in on the object. Instead I ran inside to get a spotting
scope, as it allows you to see a much wider area up close (makes it easier for me to spot, and track the object.)
Anyhow I went inside the house, got the scope, and wrote the first post. I allready had ATS open, because before I left to let the dog out I was in
the middle of writing a u2u message to somebody. I made the post, and went back outside with the scope. I looked over my house once again, and the
green light was still there. This time it was sitting stationary. I looked at it abit without aid of the scope. I was begining to think it was just a
star, or something. I then looked from what I could make out it looked like a pill with a green thing (that emits light) on the bottom, it may have
had pale yellowish lights on the side, I couldn't really tell you.
After looking at it abit longer, I began to think it was a star again. It was just sitting there doing nothing. It then "dropped" (appeared to go
straight down), and then shot to the right (North once again), it stayed stationary for a little while longer (3 seconds? maybe longer) then
"dropped" again. After this drop it shot away to the north. I kept on watching it untill I couldn't see it any longer.
This totally was a UFO in the sense that it was an unidentified flying object to me. I'm not saying aliens were in this thing steering it, but it was
making some crazy moves, at really high speeds.
I'm used to seeing planes fly over my house, because I think I'm over a flight path for Jet Blue (the orange blue planes), and some other airline.
It's also not unusual to see private jets fly over my house as well. I'm pretty used to seeing aircraft over my area, and I'm like 80% certain this
wasn't a usual aircraft, It was moving way too weird to be one.
