Duration:90 seconds
Ball of light travelling high up, silent

I got up early one morning it was around 5:56am. Alarm was set for 7am but thought I’d get up and check the weather outside. It was still dark and the sky was extremely clear, no clouds, and the stars were quite visible. I decided to go get my camera and take some pictures of the stars since there were so many and visibility was excellent. I looked up at a group of stars and noticed one of them was moving. It was a ball of light, silent, and travelling fairly quickly. I thought to myself this is no star or meteorite because of the speed of the object. I’ve seen meteorites and they fade out pretty fast and travel like a bullet and are gone. I grabbed my camera and tried to film it with no success. It was pretty high up, maybe 3-5000 feet up. I watched it for about 90 seconds until it was no longer in sight. Then lo and behold another appeared travelling high up and went by one of those stars that twinkle and appear to change color. It was also high up (ball of light) and I couldn’t focus for a good picture. At the same moment in a different area in the sky there was an airplane flying with the typical blinking navigational lights and jet engine sound. The two were completely different.

Then my attention was drawn to this apparent star that was very bright and changing color. Even to the naked eye I could see it change color. I had my camera on a tripod and started to shoot video and a few pictures. This object whatever it was bluish in color and went from a ball of light to a hexagon with a slight dark spot in the middle. Do stars change colors and shapes?? I don’t know. I thought maybe it was the Earth’s atmosphere and it’s distance from Earth that caused these variations in shape and color. Whatever it was it was fascinating to watch and I videotaped it for about 16 minutes. Unfortunately the balls of light just wouldn’t cooperate with my camera. Here’s an interesting tidbit. I was going through the reports on your site and noticed someone in Surfside Beach, SC reported a red ball of light in the sky on 9/19/14. They said when they zoomed in, it looked like a human brain with shades of gray. Although I couldn’t capture this with my camera, when I used my! binoculars to look at this apparent star, it too looked like a brain in the sky. It was really cool looking and when I went out of focus with the binoculars is when it looked like a wired brain in the sky. I thought maybe I was seeing things. Now I know someone else saw a ball of light when zooming in taking on the appearance of a brain. I think I will coin the term UFB,meaning "unidentified flying brain”. Of course I’m poking a little fun at this but this story is absolutely true. I think many people see odd things in our skies but never take the time to ponder something really different just happened. If I can I will post the picture of this pulsating star and video on your site.
