Duration:15 MINUTES
MY NEPHEW WHO IS 13 AND MYSELF WHO IS 35 SAW 1 LIGHT, APPEARANCE THAT LIKE ONE OF A STAR BUT MOVING. THREE DIFFERENT FIVE MINUTE TIME INTERVALS. FIRST AND SECOND INTERVAL IT MOVED SLOWLY AND DISSAPPEARED UPWARD TO THE EAST THEN TO THE NORTH-WEST APPEARANTLY OUTSIDE INTO OUR ATMOSPHERE. REALLY CLEAR NIGHT, THERE WAS NO CLOUD COVER AT ALL ON THIS PARTICULAR NIGHT. THIRD TIME WAS THE MOST INTRIGUING, THE LIGHT APPEARED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF OUR PREVIOUS DIRECTION {BEHIND US}WE WERE FACING AND APPEARED IT WAS BEING FOLLOWED OR CHASED BY THREE NON COMMERCIAL TYPE AIRCRAFT POSSIBLY FIGHTER JETS. THE LIGHT WHICH WAS MOVING SO FAST APPEARENTLY STREAKED ACROSS THE SKY CLAIMS MY NEPHEW BUT TO ME ALL MY EYES COULD REGISTER WAS IT LOOKING LIKE SOMEONE HAD FLASHED A FLASHLIGHT IN SPLIT SECOND INTERVALS IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IN THE SKY. THE LIGHT WOULD LIGHT UP AND THEN SHUT OFF PRESUMABLY THE TIME IN BETWEEN IT WAS MOVING ACCORDING TO MY NEPHEW. MY NEPHEW ALSO SAYS IT APPPEARED TO BE TAUNTING THE JET PLANES THAT WERE IN PURSUIT.
