I go out at night on our porch to look at the stars. They are usually very bright here. The skys are very clear. when I first looked up to the west, there was what seemed to be an explosion of light under 3 stars (Ithink Orion's Belt) One particularly bright pulsing circle (Ithought was a star) movedin a strabge way. I turned away to clear my eyes(in case I was seeing an illusion of some sort) after a moment, I looked back and the star was definatly moving in a zig zag way. I watched for a moment and went in the housse to get my daughter so she coukd tell me I wasn't seeing things, but the star was gone. Tonight about 1:30 am my husband came in from smoking a cigarette and said he saw something too. Towards the west a zig zag moving star. I can't honestly say I saw a UFO but i am making sure my doors and windows are locked and I am afraid to go out and look up.

((NUFORC Note: Sirius, a bright and twinkling star, is just to the left of Orion. PD))
