Duration:3 to 5 minutes
11/20/99 1:30am purple glowing sphere moves in a straight line across a clear starry quarter moon night.

I was looking up at the quarter moon and the very bright star next to it, looked very beautiful, clear skies no clouds whatsoever. I was facing SW and out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright purple sphere that looked very far away come in a perfectly straight line across the sky. Went just under the moon and continued in a perfectly straight line moving at about well if I put a measuring tape up in front of me to use as a guide I would have to say it moved across that measureing tape about 1 to 2 feet per second in a perfectly straight line. I have never seen anything like it. I was out with a friend and there were several other people there as well that saw the object move across the sky and to my surprise 2 of them said, oh we see stuff like that all the time. I am originally from South FL now a transplant to the area and have been looking up for 30 years and never saw anything like that. But I can tell you that after I saw this purple glowing sphere move across the sky the way it did and it looked very far away I became a believer that we are not alone. I had been listening to the Art Bell show ever since I moved to the west coast and stumbled on his program and have been hooked ever since and when I heard this info on the Art Bell show tonight and I have access to a computer at home now I decided to send this report in. Thankyou and I hope it helps in your cause.
