Last night, me and my family were just sitting outside talking and my father pointed to what looked like a star in the sky. It did look like a star. Bright and all. But then it would SLOWLY (I mean very slow) hover to the left maybe an inch, then it would move back to its regular position. We watched it for an hour or two and by that time, it was hovering about four or five inchs away from the star that was under it.

It couldn't have been my imagination since about six or seven saw it.

Anyone care to post what they think?

Dunno. UFO, satelite, US govornment craft, asteroid?

could have been a weather balloon or satellite, in a very clear sky, if you look close enough, you can see many hover over remote areas.

I was thinking satelitte since that is what a lot of people keep telling me. But I really don't know what it is. Like you said, weather balloon maybe.

I would have thought that if it was a satellite it would have moved in a steady line rather than returning to its initial position. Any satellite I've ever seen has traced a relatively quick path across the sky.

I dunno, maybe I'm wrong. Unless of course geo-stationary satellites would produce this kind of movement?




A geo-stationary orbit is an orbit of an Earth's satellite whose period of rotation is exactly equal to the period of rotation of Earth about it's polar axis (which is 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds) and whose trajectory is aligned with the Earth's equator.

Any satellite in this orbit will appear as if it is always in the same place in the sky when observed from the same point on the Earth. This orbit is at a distance of approximately 35,900 km from the surface of the Earth. Communication satellites are usually placed into this orbit, with several satellites in the same orbit, distributed around to provide world wide coverage for relaying the telecommunication signals.

A geo-stationary orbit is also sometimes called: stationary, or synchronous orbit.

One can also, launch a satellite into a synchronous orbit that is inclined to the Earth's equator. Once in this orbit, the satellite will trace a figure 8 once every 24 hours. The size and the shape of this figure will depend on the inclination angle.

Other more complicated orbits are also possible - especially if one is considering a space vehicle that has it's own propulsion.

There are several types of powered, unmanned lighter than air craft that are used by the government and private groups. Some are nonrigid dirigibles shaped like spheres or balls... and, if seen at night, they would look like a spherical UFO. But, most importantly, these craft are often equipped with small, electric motors that are used to keep them 'on station' for long stretches of time, with slight deviations caused by gusts of wind.

So... Do you live near a border or any area that has been under ecological study. Many of these drone blimps are designed to monitor the border crossings of illegal aliens.

...That being said, you should report your sighting to some group like NUFORC, NICAP, MUFON, or NIDSCI. My guess is, because it was just a Nocturnal light, that they may not come out to investigate... but, still, you never know...
