I have had a few interesting experiences in the past two days. First, I heard some strange scratching and thumping in the corner of the house last
night. I thought it was my roommate in his bedroom. His room is directly above mine. Later he asked me about it so it obviously wasn't him. I
never heard this sound in our house before. There are many weird sounds in the house as it is about 100 years old. Just not this sound before. Last
night (July 30) I was outside in my back yard looking south at a very bright star, Venus I believe. It was spectacular, way brighter than anything
else in the sky. It was so bright I went to get my girlfriend from inside to show her. She too was impressed. Then she asked "What's that?" She
was looking northwest and there was something as bright as Venus that hadn't been there a minute ago. It went from standing still to moving pretty
fast from the northwest to the southeast, I had to turn all the way around to watch it and it grew in brightness. Then we both saw it just disappear.
Gone. When we went inside I discovered white soap flakes all over my bedroom floor. We don't use white soap (I'm a huge fan of hand made soaps).
So tonight about the same time (1130) I'm outside smoking and talking to my roommate when I see it again (the light). Again coming from the
northwest going to the southeast, from a standstill to a pretty good clip growing brighter then just disappearing. Strange to see it twice in two
nights at the same time and same place doing the same thing. At first it reminded me of the spacestation in initial appearance, speed and direction.
Problem is the spacestation doesn't disappear. I know late July is a busy time for meteors. I've seen thousands of meteors and a dozen or so
fireballs and it didn't remind me of either. MUFON had this report from earlier tonight:

I was outside smoking a ciggarette when my neighbors behind me started talking about a wierd object in the sky. I immediatly ran inside and grabbed my
binoculars and found the object at a very high altitude moving very quickly accross the cloudless sky. I first spotted the object when it was passing
by venus and had a spooky feeling about what I saw. It had a luminous green glow that made it seem bommerrang'ish without binoculars but when looking
through the specs multicolored lights were revolving around it consistantly never stopping and the "green" glow was still there only brighter. I
dont know if my neighbors took any pictures or not because I didnt. I was to caught up in what I was seeing and am wondering if there is going to be
any other witnesses
Its a report from Montana (that's where I live) but the description is wrong. So I checked NUFORC and came up with this:
Montana UFO reports
The second one down is close to what I observed two nights in a row, it occurred last week and its in the general area of the state that I live in
(the report is from Whitefish).
It's not the most outrageous story I've heard (or could tell) but all of it together is very strange and I just wanted to share.
