It was the week of thanksgiving holidays my kids and thier cousin were out of school for thanksgiving. I was in the house cooking the kids were in the backyard jumping on the trampoline while I fixed them some thing to eat in the kitchen, I could see them through the window because my backdoor light was on. I saw them stop jumping and were staring up at the sky. I was about to walk out and see what they were looking at because I live in a area that is surrounded by chemeical plants and casino lights so the sky is usually pretty lit up and I owe a telesscope and me and a good friend of mine had recently been seeing strange lights int the sky; but before I could walk outside the kids all came running in scared by strange lights they were seeing moving in the sky. I quickly went out= side to see what they saw and sure enough above the treeline I saw a white glowing sphere of light that pulsed blue and amber lights. It was dancing erradically in the sky. You could clearly see it moving up and down, side- ways and it was as bright as a star in fact when it was still you could almost believe it was a star. As we are out there looking at this my son(11)hollers;"Look there are more of them only smaller they are moving too!" I thought he might be caught up in the moment and was imaging it, but when I looked he was right. The other objects looked like dimmly lit stars but were pulsing the same blue and amber lights, they were also moving erradically but almost like in accordance with the larger brightly lit object. My husband and friend showed up and found me sin the backyard watching these crafts. My husband who is a very skeptical was stunned by what we were seeing. He could find a resaonalbe answer for the objects. The craft made no sounds at all and the larger one began to shot out sparks of light like a beam down towards the ground in the woods behind my house. At that moment we heard an aircraft approaching it was a big passenger plane coming from the airport from the front of my house it passed extremly close to the brightly lit craft and the craft still continued its erradic dance in the sky. We see aircraft alot around here and everyone who saw it knows it was a conventional craft. The sightings of these objects is becoming more frequently in my area. I decided to report this event only because of that fact. I don't want to be ridiculed by people but since it is happening so frequently I felt compled to report it to someone who might be able to investigate. If I had a camcorder I would be sending you footage.

((NUFORC Note: Report is not inconsistent with the many report NUFORC receives of "twinkling" stars or planets. They are virtually always reported to have multiple colors, and to jump around in the night sky. PD))
