Location: Birmingham, AL
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Object that is the size of a small star changed size, light intensity, and rapidly dropped to the ground after 40 seconds of observatio

My Sighting: At approximately 3:47, I observed a light in the sky, too small to be a plane even at its biggest shape. The object was moving in an alarmingly strange fashion, which is what initially caused me to observe it. I will state my location, which is Birmingham, Alabama, traveling northward at the time on Highway 280, but waiting in the turn lane to turn on I-459 South. I noticed the light intensity on this object was changing in an unpredictable way, much like the movements. While the movements and shapes of this small star shaped light were sporadic, it did move in a general direction of east to west. About 40 seconds after observing said object, I noticed it got harder to follow. When it became visible again, it dropped to the ground at an extremely fast speed. I should also mention that it was daytime and my visibility was clear. I spoke to the hotline manager at 3:55 to report my sighting.
