My husband and I work very early mornings doing deliveries. I have always been fascinated with the stars and take every available opportunity to look up at them while working. So was the case today, August 18, 2007, like around 4:40am.
I looked up and saw what I thought was a shooting star but immediately decided that it could not be one because it continued moving and was very bright. I told my husband who immediately saw it. We decided that it was impossible for it to be an airplane because it was moving very fast. My husband looked down for a second and lost track of it, but I didn’t. The light continued moving and suddenly began to turn, up and down and left and right, as if it was trying to avoid hitting something up there. Eventually, I too lost track of it.
Afterwards my husband and I were talking about what we had seen and realized that we were looking at two different objects going on two different directions; his was going north and mine south east.
