Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Went outside and there was a light pretty high up over our tree line (from our view) this light has been here for a while and before was accompanied with an air craft that flew significantly lower and closer to us that we assumed it was a drone and that the big one was a planet. Last night it was in a slightly different area in the sky. I said "get theres that light that i guess is a planet (laughing because I got called crazy for saying it was a if I watching the area) and i looked away for about 5 seconds after saying.this to my fiance and he said yes I see it. But as we looked back 5 seconds later we both notice it was gobe. This was very big and white light so bright youd swear it wasa planet. And then boom. Gone. As we are looking for it wondering how it just dissapeared...it came back in a very slighlty different spot to thw right. No colors flashing. It disnt really twinkle or flash. Then it got super dim amd looked like a pin for light like a no! rmal star. Then itd get brighter and dim again but more frequently but still slow enough there was no fast flash in between. Then we noticed very far away was two more but these two were grouped together and seemed to be communicating with flashes. No other colored lights. Just super white. As we looked back to the original main huge dimming light we notice it was going up and very far away to where we couldnt see it no more. It made motions the whole time that i call swimming in the sky. It loomed like the motion fish make to swim but also going up and down back and forth farther and closer.no sound associated with the craft. After that main big one dissapeared we notice one of the others also dissapeared but the other stayed. We went inside and a few minutes later I went to look out my window and seen that the last one had gone too. I have a 49 second video. But its hard to tell. And im slightly shaky from nerves so tonight (4/19/20 i intend to set up a spot so the camer! a is steady and as it gets dark i want to see if it comes back! or more come back. Also....last night we went out again after it all and there was nothing else but the hazy fog like clouds were eerie and one spot was even squiggly like a far away galaxy would appear. Probably not related to what i seen but it added to the spook. ( we are being watched) odd time with the covid19 that sightings are increasing ! I woke up with a long scratch on my leg and its still welped like it had just happened. As soon as i opened my eyes my mind went to the pain. Creepy!
