I was going to wait to post this until this afternoon, but the coincidences kept me thinking about it.
I walk at night around my neighborhood about three times a week for exercise. Each time it takes me exactly twenty minutes to return. I was just about
to my driveway when I see this moving star fly by. Not a shooting star that's really quick and fizzels out. This looked just like the north star, but
a little larger and it traveled by over the vicinity of my house. I stopped when I thought this star appeared to be moving to verify if it was me
moving or the star. Clearly this bright star was moving! No flashing lights, which are required to be on all airplanes and no trailing sound that is
accompanied with all planes.
So I run up the street after I stopped to see if it was moving like it appeared and run up my sidewalk, still seeing it. I went up my front porch
steps in a vain effort to grab a camera because my cell phone camera wouldn't pick this up decently. I stopped, went back to my front yard to see if
it was still there and it wasn't. There was some very light cloud cover, but that shouldn't have made a difference since this object was clearly
visible/bright. I backed up some more and kept looking and it wasn't there any more.
So, I go inside, and the time on my wall clock says 8:15 pm, my watch says 8pm.
The significance of this time difference is this: My Fossil watch's battery has been running slow for the past week. I procrastinated getting a new
battery because I didn't want to drive far where I had got one before and get it replaced. I kept advancing the side dial as a band aid fix for a
week. Then, my leather watch band broke, literally hanging on by two threads.
On March 24th, I buy a new band. On March 25th, I drop it off at a watch repair shop referred to me by a saleslady at Wal Mart who referred me to them
since they didn't have the battery or could do that anymore. I come back an hour later to pick up my watch with new battery and band installed.
On March 26th, I go walking around my neighborhood as I always do for exercise and notice my watch seemed to be running slow. When I'm almost home, I
see this bright flying star. When I come inside like 30 seconds later, after failing to see where this star went, I notice that my watch says 8pm,
when my wall clock says 8:15pm-and I just had a new battery installed the day before tha kept perfect time. I adjusted it to the right time and it has
kept the correct time since.
It's a strange coincidence to see a UFO/flying star and my watch with new battery be off by twenty minutes.
I've seen these "flying stars" before while walking at night, usually they are very distant, so I just dismiss them as far away planes or
On January 7th of this year, is when I first saw a close flying star in my neighborhood but at 6:24pm(I wrote it down that night because I was amazed
and perplexed). No sound, no blinking lights. Just what looked like a bright star moving along a trajectory.
