Shape: Light
Duration:15 min.
Marching Band loving light follows the patterns of the band.

As funny as it may seem and to the best of my memory it was during band camp. As the band was standing in form at attention, something caught my peripheral vision above my head.

I lifted my head and very distant in the sky I saw a series of stars. At the time I was taking a physics class and I knew which were stars and what was not. Any way I saw a swirling blue and yellow light between 2 stars in the sky. I was able to study the movement because the marching band was receiving a lecture and we were not permitted to move.

I gazed at the blue-yellow light and recognized the pattern, it had seemed to be forming the same shapes as the marching band below it. At that time I grabbed the closest person and pointed in the direction of the light. Without describing what I saw, I had asked them if they see anything. The person had responded, "Is that star moving?" another person noticed and looked up as well.

I was able to get the whole band to look without saying a word and they all saw what I saw. The band is multi-racial, and they all noticed. Apparently it spooked the directors, because I heard the tremble in their voices.

Of course some of them were in denial and said it was a satellite, but those move in straight lines, and there much more distant and dim. Others said it might have been an airplane, as they said that, an airplane flew under it. I said, "No, my friend, that right there is an airplane, whatever that is, is not" The light that I have described from where I was standing appeared to be 2 centimeters in diameter. It was much brighter and closer than any star in the sky that night. It was close enough to see that it was moving. It didn't leave until the band practice was over. It appeared as though it was seeking entertainment from the marching band.
