|Moving lights in the sky
I am a member of a bigfoot research group. We were researching/camping in Gray, TX. It had been raining on and off all evening. It was cold and miserable. At approx. 0100 the rain stopped and the clouds cleared off. At approx. 0130 one of our members who was facing the opposite direction from me muttered something like, "Look at that star up there, it's moving." Like a chorus from a choir, the profanity from that end of the camp sang out like Bocelli. I jumped out of my chair to tell them to be quiet but to also see what the hell they were looking at. I looked up and sure enough, there was a "star" that was moving around in the sky. It moved up, moved down, moved side to side, got bright, dimmed completely and went back to bright again. It also pulsated. (This light was in the east) Shortly thereafter, another light of the same nature was spotted just several degrees to the right of the original moving light. Shortly after that another light of the same nature was spotted several degrees to the right of the last.
These lights didn't seem to move great distances from their "original position." I think the first light may have been an exception to this. At first it moved around in a small area but later moved around covering greater distances than the other two but then went back to just moving around in a small area.
These lights seemed to be using the backdrop of the stars as camouflage in that they A) typically only moved around in "small" areas and B) moved with the stars as if to follow the earth's rotation.
This got redundant after awhile. I believe I saw a 4th moving light later in the morning but didn't say anything to anyone. This went on for the rest of the night/morning.
This was seen by all in the camp except for one person who is near sighted and doesn't wear glasses (go figure). I'm very near sighted and have astigmatism but do wear glasses. What's my point? The first two lights were somewhat close to eachother. Others seemed to be able to see more pulsating than me. With my glasses off, these two very bright objects in the sky became very bright "globs" of light. For once with my glasses off I could see something better than with them on. The two lights were definately strobing/pulsating.
I have spent a lot of time out in the woods at night but have never seen anything like this before. For the first hour, we all stood around with our jaws hanging to our knees. After that we just got used to it and watched the ongoing show without saying much.
I'm sure I left out some detail and would like to be contacted before this gets posted on your site. I can best be reached in the evenings.
