Traveling home from Church band rehearsel wed i passed into view of my Dad`s old trailer, you can see a wonderful horizon. This path is where LOTS of commercial jets fly, with the distinctive FLASHING lights that look like a strobe at times. ( i am retired Navy aircraft electrician worked on F-14A tomcats at home and sea!) This time tho, i see two ORANGE ( DULL at that) lights together just stationary on the horizon. I stop the tuck, turn lights off and observe from inside the vehicle at first, carefully noting postion from it the light pole on the left,( pole is physically to my right tho) and the treeline on right. At first it still appeared stationary. Then it veered slightly NE and came on approach!! I get out of the truck to observe. It comes w/i 1/2 mile to my right, at an altiude of @ 12--1500 feet! I can see what looks like a old 60`s antennae shape to the craft, glowing soft orange. All i heard was a soft whirring as it went by! Now i watch aircraft go by at night, and do alot of sky watching, the commercial and military jets are quite easy to spot w/lighting arrangement. Brothers and sisters this wasn`t one of them!!
