|It was the unusual movement that made all who were observing the object consider it a UFO.
While on Field Training Excersise with the Georgia Army National Guard at Fort Stewart Georgia I witnessed this event along with a number of other soldiers. We were firing artillery that night and I was on the Observation Point along with a number of other soldiers. I cannot remember how many objects we saw that night but I am sure of one. The object appeared at a high altitude. It was a crisp winter night with little or no moon. All of the stars were quite clear. I am used to looking for satellites in the night sky. I was a COMSEC Officer with the 1/230 Field Artillery Battalion. Along with Forward Observers on the OP were a number of Active duty evaluators who were assigned to our unit for evaluation.
The object caught someones eye and soon we were all viewing object. Each of us trying to find an explaination. The object which appeared as s small star in the sky just kept moving in very bazaar movements. It zigged and zagged but it seemed to stay overhead.
Of course we were on a very important military base and all considered it some kind of spy satellite. It seemed to looking at us. The movements were so unusual that we had to call it a UFO. Some thought it might be a weather balloon. No balloon would stay in a pattern such as the object that night. It was not a flight path of any known flying objects I have ever seen nor my fellow soldiers many of which had years of active duty.
