|Starting on October 10, 2004, I have seen an object in the sky twice previously in the past week and a third time last night, I saw two. Usually I noticed it around 2 or 2:15 am (while I was working at my home computer, I am a writer and so is my husband) and it would be noticable for about 30 to 45 minutes but since it was early in the morning I have usually gone to bed before it disappeared. However, on Monday night 10/12 it disappeared before I went to bed. I might add the weather was good and no other stars were visible in the sky when we have seen these lights. After the first sighting, my husband up out of bed to see it/them. The object(s) appears on the Gulf water side due East and Southeast over the Bolivar Peninsul/ Texas City area. You see a belt of lights parallel to the horizon seeming to rotate around whatever it is, changing colors from white to yellow to green occasionally with a red flash. Normally it hovers in one spot moving ever so slightly but last night 2 of them appeared at the same time. At first they were a good distance from each other then one moved to be in tandem with the most easterly one and they were close to each other high over the roof top of my neighbors home but I have no idea how high they were, I would say extremely high. On Monday night the one that was there was kind od darting around slightly before it disappeared. I am concerned and I do not know what to do; because as you may know there are many petroleum refineries here in this area and the salt dome oil storage is underground at High Island not far from here. I guess I am worried these might be some sort of spy vehicles but they just seem so unusual that I cannot believe others have not seen them and I have to think the US military and the Coast Guard would be strengently guarding these refineries, so why have they not seen them? We tried to get some photos but our camera is not good enough for this type photograpy. We do have a telescope and we are going to adjust it today so we can possibly see something in the next few days.
((NUFORC Note: We suspect Venus may be the object. PD))
