Something is definately flying in the skies above central Alabama and it is Not a plane.
Again, I went walking tonight, as I do three of four nights a week for exercise and I'm almost at the bottom of my street (it's on a hill) and as
I'm looking at the neighbors brush pile in the gutter, I see this bright "star" between the trees' silhouettes.
It looks like its moving, so I stop, and I see this bright white object moving behind the tree line. I don't see any FAA flashing light, no jet
engine noise, so I jog down the street to see it past the trees.
I get to the bottom of my street, following it...I get my cell phone and take three pictures of it. I deleted the first picture by accident, I saved
the other two. But, you can't see the object in the two pictures, yet I could look up and see the gliding object still with the naked eye. It's just
that cell phone cameras are crappy (mine's the Razr/Motorola). There's seems to be a spec where I remember seeing its location, but that could just
me being to optimistic.
>This makes the 3rd time this year so far that I've seen this object. Each one has the same characteristics:
1) Looks like a bright white moving star
2) There are no flashing FAA lights
3) There is no sound
4) Its flying at a low altitude (1/2 the distance of planes)
5) It's gliding, not flying fast like planes or jets.
This April sighting is also similiar to my January sighting in that both were flying in the same direction, heading towards the same tree line.
Another thing that I found odd/intriguing about my January sighting is that two weeks after I saw it, I saw a helicopter make 3 passes over this same
area, at night, looking for something. The circling helicopter could and is likely to be coincidence, but what would be the reason for a helicopter to
be circling around the same small area? A fugitive? At night, not likely. Helicopter searches are expensive with the cost of pilot and gas...I wonder
what the return was?

>ATS member NateNute, saw the same object the next night (March sightings) in the same, Jefferson County/Birmingham area around the same, 8pm Central
