Duration:10 sec.
I was sitting outside on the front porch of my dorm enjoying a cigarette with a friend when I looked up and saw what I thought was a single prop airplane. After about two seconds I noticed that the there were no strobes flashing. Holding a VFR I tend to observe lights in the sky, and knowing all planes are required to have strobes I knew it was not a plane. As soon as I thought this the light stood still and then shot away.

((NUFORC Note: Aircraft are not required to have strobe lights, just marker lights on the wingtips. PD))
