Duration:1 MINUTE
ON 8-08-08 I CHECK THE PLANETS ALIGNMENT IN MY COMPUTER AND FOUND THAT THEY WERE IN A STRAIGHT LINE FROM THE SUN THROUGH THE MOON,WHICH I THOUGHT WAS UNUSUAL.

I WENT OUTSIDE TO CHECK OUT PLANETS TO SEE IF I COULD SET UP MY TELESCOPE AND FOUND THE MOON WAS TOO BRIGHT.JUPITER WAS IN PLAIN SIGHT.MY WIFE AND A NEIGHBER JOINED ME IN THE DRIVEWAY.

NEXT I SPOTTED WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A SATELITE BUT IT APPEARED AS BRIGHT AS JUPITER AND MOVING WEST TO EAST.IT ALSO PASSED A COMMERCIAL AIRLINE WHICH GAVE US A CLUE AS TO ITS SIZE IT WAS HUGE.IT APPEARED TO WOBBLE AS FLEW AND IT DIDNT FADE OUT AS A SATELITE DOES ON THE HORIZON.

MY NEIGHBER COMMENTED THAT WE HAD JUST SEEN A UFO.
