We got up at 0300. My wife leaves for work at 0430. AT 0400 I went out to have a smoke. I was looking out over Dane County regional airport at the stars. One started moving from side to side then in circles. I called my wife out in case I was seeing things. She saw the same thing. We observed it till just before she was going to leave. It then took of like shot and disappeared. It was NOT an airplane. They don't move up and down and side to side. I'm just a 63 yr. year old retired guy and my wife is a 58 year old walmart stocker. Living by the airport I know how planes move and they sure don't move like this thing did. Thanks
