Duration:15 mins.
Large, white star or planet-shaped object that appeared to divide in 2 parts, circling each other, slowly, then accelerating until stopping abruptly with one object separated travelling South in a straight line.

Having had several unusual sightings and occurances during my lifetime, I was driving the last leg of my morning paper route when I noticed an unusually large object in the sky out of the driver-side window. For awhile, I had a strange feeling it was following or "pacing" me. Trying to discount paranoia, I decided it was just "there". I thought it was the Planet Venus, but it was twice the expected size. As I approached the stop sign at the junction of the main road, I decided to pull over, get out, stretch my legs and gaze at this thing. Shortly, the object appeared to "quiver", separate into two parts, and spin faster and faster,counterclockwise around each other before coming to an abrupt halt. One object appeared to accelerate to the South while the other remained stationary. During this sighting, I shook my head, rubbed my eyes, pinched myself (it hurt!), but I was not asleep. I kept sight of the remaining object until I reached home. The importance of this seemed to dissolve, but the memory remains vivid.
