SHOOTING STAR TURNS OUT TO BE SOMETHING ELSE

I'M NOT TOO COMPUTER SAVVY, SO I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO CUT AND PASTE.

I WAS ON A CRUISE WITH MY PARENTS JANUARY 5 - JANUARY 12, 2008. WE WERE SITTING ON THE DECK OUTSIDE OUR STATEROOMS. I WAS CLOSEST TO THE RAILING. OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE, I SAW WHAT I BELIEVED TO BE A SHOOTING STAR. THE SKY WAS DARK AND A LO5T OF STARS WERE OUT. WE COULD SEE THE ILLUMINATION OF THE SHIP'S LIGHTS ON THE WATER.

AS I SAW THIS "SHOOTING STAR", I SCREAMED FOR MY MOTHER, HUSBAND, AND FATHER TO LOOK. MY MOTHER SAW IT AFTER I GOT HER ATTENTION. IT WAS TRAVELING VERY FAST, AND STOPPED. IT THEN PROCEEDED TO BACK UP, AS IF IT WAS LOOKING AT THE SHIP.

IT THEN MOVED STRAIGHT UP, THEN BACK DOWN, BLINKING DIFFERENT COLORS. IT THEN TOOK OFF SO FAST, AND WAS GONE BEFORE WE KNEW IT.
