Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Several stars moving then stopping and moving again in another direction.

I was having dinner at a new aquaintance's house in Nenana, who my boyfriend at the time introduced me to and was also one of the witness's. We were having a beer and discussing UFO's, which I had brought up because of my interest in the issue.

The gentleman said that they see stuff (UFO's) all the time out in this rural area of Nenana. I asked him what all has he seen and stated that I have always been interested in viewing a siting but had not been really fortunate enough to view anything distinct. He stated that all we had to do was watch the sky outside his home and we would likely see something.

We stepped outside to prove this and as I was waiting I asked him what he had seen. He said just look up and watch the stars very closely. I said are you sure it's not a satelite because they look like stars and move steadily across the sky. He said just watch when you find one. So I watched, and I almost instantly saw a star moving slowly across the sky. I said "Well thats a satelite." He said just watch. As I was watching this star, which looked like any other star but moving like a satalite, it stopped and changed direction. It was stopped for about 5 seconds and started back in the other direction it had come, I was startled, because I thought that satelites were in orbit and they cannot move in the opposite direction back to where they had come and planes cannot just stop and change direction. The object had moved about an inch in my view then returned and stopped. I then viewed, as it was returning, another about an inch from the first star or UFO doing the same thing. I noticed it moved about the same distance and then returned to where I first viewed it. As I was watching in absolute awe I started to notice others moving and right after I started spoting all of them I saw one of them shoot like a shooting star with a short trail unlike other shooting stars I had seen before which had long trails mostly. Nevertheless it was very much like a shooting star. It could have been one but the other things continued to move about in different direction stopping and changing directions. The getleman who showed me this stated that you view this pretty much every night anytime. I have not visited since but I would be curious if someone could bring out a telescope and view these things up close. This is near a base called Clear Airforce base. I have traveled through Nenana to get to Anchorage and have never seen an entrance to this base. It is there though because my cousin lives near it and my phone bill says her phone number is at Clear Air Force base area.
