Reported: 1/11/2001 12:03
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Boy Scout Camp Royenea, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:10 minutes
There were many green colored objects moving quickly around a portion of the sky and one by one the objects flickered out

It was about 22:00 (10 PM) when we started a night hike with our packs on up to the hill where we would be stargazing. We were a group of boy scouts at Camp going on an overnight "sleeping under the stars" kind of thing. It was for the astronomy merit badge and we were going to try to find the constelations in the sky that we had already recognized on paper. After the late night sky watching we went to bed. My friend and I couldn't sleep. We ended up looking up at the sky. It was a beautifully clear night, and you could see everything from Orion to Leo. We noticed a small group of about 12 or 13 green stars that appeared to be moving among eachother. We watched them for about 10 minutes, then they flickered out one by one. We didn't think much of it at the time, but our experience got us interested in learning about stars and such. We later learned that there are no such things as green stars
