|Moving Star-Type lights In the Sky
My children and I just witnessed something strange. We were just getting to sleep when I noticed a light that was blinking through the 3 broken slats in one of our vertical blinds. I asked my son and daughter (ages 7 and 5 respectively) if they could see anything and they said yes they could see some "blinking lights". At first I thought "oh how nice, clear night - stars twinkling"..then something really odd happened. Nothing an airplane would do. One of the "blinking stars" started ascending in a sort of zig-zag pattern then went to the left (Note: we were looking over the range Mount Charleston is on, perhaps North East, more to the East then North).
Then two more did the SAME thing. I had to open the blind more and my kids saw the other lights do this sort of "zig-zag" movement and they gasped. I told them I was going outside to look (they did not want me doing that!) and so I did, just to prove to myself I wasn't looking at some lasers or whatever on my window. Sure enough, there they were, the blinking lights, now a couple of them moving here and there. They are STILL outside the window. My kids are not happy about this for some reason. I've never known them to feel scared about stars or lights before. I think it was HOW they were moving, these "dancing light-stars" or whatever the heck they were. I don't know of any airshows in the area and it was like, they were moving about sort of like how you move a push pin around a map, that's how I can somehow explain it. Odd, isn't it? This is not a joke. And my kids do NOT want to snuggle with Mommy in her room at this point. I wish I had a camera but I don't know what I could point out other then "moving stars" on a video. I wonder if anyone else in the are saw them too.
Thank you for letting me share.
