|"Boomerang" shape over Atlanta, Tx -October 2005
I was out walking my dog. Weather conditions were chilly and clear.
I looked up to admire the stars, and saw a boomerang-shaped object slowly moving South (parallel to Tx. Rt. 59.) It did not make any sound. The object appeared to have lights evenly spaced along its perimeter. The lights were white/amber colored.
I stood with my mouth hanging open, watching it move over me and towards the south. Interestingly enough, my dog promptly sat down and stared up at the object as well!
After about 15 seconds, it speeded up and disappeared over the Walmart on Route 59 (as best as I could tell.) Since that night, the dog's behavior has changed when he is out in the backyard at night, on his tether. He appears to not like being out at night, which is a change for him.
A few weeks after this sighting of...whatever it was, we have begun to experience intermittent episodes of neighborhood dogs going crazy and barking at no visible stimuli, almost on cue, in the evening. I have also been startled by what sounds like small footsteps pattering behind me, when I go outside after dark. This tends to coincide with the dogs "going nuts".
All this is very creepy. I am a Ph.D grad student, and not given to flights of imagination.
