I filmed a craft for about 2 minutes moving in differing directions. Definietly not a helicopter or plane.

Last night at around 10:00 p.m while watching TV with the Girlfriend and her 11 year old son, I noticed out the window (at about 20 degrees above the horizon) what appeared to be a rocket taking off from Kennedy Space Center (which is about 40 miles due south of our home). After commenting on this, we all hurried outside to witness the event. Soon on the lawn, we became aware that the craft was much closer (within 3-5 miles) than originally thought and was moving in differning directions. I had the 11 year old get the sony camcorder from the house and I recorded the following: The craft is filmed for about 2 minutes moving in differing directions. Definietly not a helicopter or plane. There appeared to be two-three distinct lights on the craft, but could have been more. It is seen traveling behind a pine tree in the distance (the tree being about 200 yrds off) and slowly is lost from the field of vision. There may have been one other such craft in the sky at the time, but I was unable to capture both objects simultaniously on film. I have retained the footage and intend to have it analyzed
