Last night (6/26/2008) I went outside at 4:30am central time to catch bugs for a pet spider. I noticed how unsusally clear the sky was, usually it
was purple orange from the light pollition from those damn sodium lights and the humidity in the air. Tonight it was closer to black and I could see
more stars than the few constellations (& venus) that are normally visible. As I was walking back along my driveway and looking up admiring the stars
I saw what appeared to be a moving constellation. I figured it was an illusion becasue I was moving while looking up, so I stopped moving and
continued to look up at the sky.
I DID see movement. Not a whole constellation, just one star moving at a pretty fast pace to the northwest. I'll try an look tonight to see what
constellation it was in, I didn't have any star charts handy.
I stood in disbelief for about 30 seconds and ran inside to wake up my brother to show him, when I came out, about another 30 seconds later, I could
not see it.
It was NOT as shoting star, not a flare, not a firework, not a helicopter. I know what those look like, I've seen several from my neighborhood
(several of each)
I am also ruling out an airliner. I've watched jets fly across the sky at high altitude, and this UFO was movign about 3-4 times as fast as a
commercial jet at high altitude. It was not as fast as a shooting star, nor did it have the glow around it. It did not disentegrate the whole time I
saw it, nor did it's luminosity change. It did not move erratically, just quickly in a straight line. I didn't see it "appear" or srart or
disspappear or stop. I jsut happend to look up and see it moving and watched it for some time, and after returning outside, it was gone.
It was just one lone whiteish blue light, and literally looked like a star was moving.
It's brightness and color looked just like a star. I've seen commercial jets at high altitude reflect sunilght; which usually lasts only for a
little while and changes intensity and shape. This UFO's "light" did not, plus this was at night. It did not look like a reflection, it looked
like it was emitting light.
Could it have been a sattellite?
I live in New Orleans LA.
No sound at all, no vapor trail.
