I know a lot of people out there don't put much into the objects seen at high-altitude, with little to now details - other than a strange star. Most
of the reports are swept away by skeptics, who use excuses like; it was a satellite, it was a commercial airliner, it was a faint star, it was a
weather balloon's strobing safety lights, etc.
Even though it is hard to determine what the object is at high-altitudes, I believe there are instances where the objects, at altitude , are
A few years ago, I saw something very, very odd at high altitude in the night sky. It had been a very hot summer day and I had just gotten out of the
pool and kicked back in a pool-side lounge chair. It was a nice night with no one around, it seemed like I could hear almost every insect in the area.
Hoping to see a shooting star, I laid back and started a sky-watching session
. I saw some strange things, but they could all be identified by
using conventional explanations. Some were planes on different flight paths and a few of them (1-3) could have been satellites.
I don't know how I even saw it, because it was so faint, it must have been it's movement that made it stand out. If you have ever seen something very
dim that seems to be invisible unless you are looking in just the right place, you will know how this light appeared to me.
It was red and tiny, and moving @ about 2 'sky' inches every 3-5seconds. So it wasn't incredibly fast, but, at the height it seemed to be at, it may
have been hauling tail.
Initially, I thought it was just an airplane or satellite with a dim red light, so I didn't pay much more attention to it. A few minutes passed since
it had vanished from my field of view, when I noticed it again. It was in the same general area of the sky, but traveling the opposite direction. It
seemed to be following the same course, back and forth across the night sky.
Again, it reappeared a few minutes after it vanished a second time. Just as it had before, it was traveling in the opposite direction (the same
direction it was traveling when I originally spotted it). The strange red light did this over and over and over. It seemed like it would do it all
night, so I didn't make a point out of obsessing over it all night.
I have never seen anything similar since then, but I do not spend a lot of time outside, looking up (a very bad habit for someone who'd love to see
another UFO). Whenever I find myself outside on a clear night, I do watch the sky, but, like I said above, I've never seen anything like it since.
I've never really mentioned it as a sighting, because I can't give enough description to identify it. I would really like to see it again, maybe
another, much closer sighting could help reveal what it is.

Hello wtbengineer! No problem, post whenever you can, I'm just glad you respond.
I've been keeping an eye open for any amnesia descriptions and have seen a few of them, as they relate to different sightings and scenarios.
It seems like there are potentially at least 2 different types of amneisa / forgetfulness being described by witnesses;
#1. Those who completely lose any recollection of the experience during a specific time frame. I think one of the best know cases ever would have to
be that of Betty and Barney Hill
. They had a substantial period of time
unaccounted for. Later, through therapy, it's thought that memories from the 'missing time' were recovered. Those memories were used to produce what
has become known as Betty Hill Starmap
#2. Those who remember the details of their experience, but are compelled to forget about discussing it with others. They have intentions of reporting
the timeline of their experience, the details of what they saw, their location, and anyone who accompanied them or were present and witnessed the same
thing. Although those intentions are generally very important to the witness, they can never remember to discuss their experience with others - which
would leave the average person highly alarmed but experiencers are not troubled by it. This forgetfulness persists for months - years, but does fade
