This is the discription I wrote about 5-10 minutes after the sighting: "On Monday, September 22, 2003 at 7PM I observed a UFO while on my road. It was a white light, though it may have flickered red, travelling in a straight line at a downward angle of 10°. I observed it for approximately 2-3 seconds, at which time it faded out.

At 7:18 the same day I observed two more. The first was heading straight down toward the horizon, and I observed it for several minutes. It was similar in appearence as the one I sighted earlier, except that it did not fade out and definitely flickered beween white, green and red. The second I saw for approximately 3 seconds, and was similar to the earlier sighting except that it faded out, then faded in, travelling on the same trajectory before finally disappearing." My first instinct (when I saw the first object) was that it was a bit of space debris burning up in the atmosphere. But the two objects I observed later did not quite fit : the one object faded out then in, and the other changed only in it's color, and I only lost sight of it as it went beneath the horizon. These objects were little more then points of lights - nothing spectacular, but as I say, it was out of the ordinary.

(I object to the use of the word craft on this form - it should say object. To call it a craft is to make the assumption that it is a manned transport of some kind, instead of being regarded as an Unknown, which is what it is.)
