I went outside to call my cat approximately between 10 or 10:30 at night, and looking up at the stars as I often do a fireball colored object wa traveling north to south as I was looking east. I thought that it was peculiar that a satellite washeaded south instead of the northerly direction that I have generally seen. Seeing the object on an aproximately 90%angle' with the cat in my arms, I was praising God for His beautiful creation of the stars. Still watching the object, a search-light went out from the object to the ground! Then I thought maybe it was a plane, perhaps turning for the airport, but it stayed on course. Then I thought it might be a helicopter....THEN the long bright white light turned right over on me!!!...then the search-light turned off and the light orange object was still on its course, heading south. ! came into the house and told my husband to hurry up and see this and i was already gone. The sky was still perfectly clear with very bright stars. I got enough courage to go out about a half hour later, but saw nothing.
