Last night I was taking out the garbage and it was clear night so I started checking out some stars. I noticed what looked exactly like a star but
seemed to be moving slightly upwards. After watching it for about a minute it turned into 2-3 very dull red lights and started flying east to west at
a constant rate of speed. None of the lights blinked but they where very dull. If I didnt notice it when it looked like a star theres no way I would
have noticed those red lights, thats how dull they were. It was just very strange that of all the places to look in the sky it happened where I was
Hard to say. from your description I'm leaning towards that you possibly saw a meteor as it was skipping off the atmosphere and it broke into three
objects before exiting. Was the object(s) moving fast, did the lights fade away or blink out? Were you able to see the thing move across the entire
I saw somthing very simliar to this about 2 months ago... I just looked up and saw a white light streaking across the sky... it got very bright,
disappeared and then reappeared as 2 lights and then continued on a straight path. Finally one completely disappeared and the other got bright again
I assume that it was a comet skipping across the atomosphere... it was strange and neat. It seems to be happening quite frequently this summer.
The lights were very close together. When it looked like a star it was above the East horizon and it was moving upwards slowly. It turned into the
2-3 dull red lights and flew a straight path and I watched it fly directly overhead toward the West. It was going in a straight line.
I had to run to the front of my house to watch it going into the western horizon but I couldn't pick it out when I got there. It seems the lights
were dimming as it went so the meteor theory sounds very pausible now that I think about it. At one point a plane was heading South To North and it
looked like they were going to directly intercect but the plane never changed heading. So from my perspective I think it was at a much higher
Military craft are assigned to a higher cruising altitude than civilian craft, so I wouldn't count that out either. I've seen a few meteor showers
myself, but I've not seen a shooting star act as you saw. Not that this means too much overall.
Hmm. Sounds interesting. If it isn't explainable, definately a UFO. I have yet to see a UFO. I hope the one I see looks alien, because that is what I
am hoping for, but what are the chances of me seeing that? pffft
