Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 minutes
Two to three objects seemingly intelligently operated. Stopped then swelled in size with large flash and streak of light.

Upon looking up while taking my dogs out to relieve themselves. I looked up into the southwestern sky from my back yard. It is a rural area and very low light pollution which provides for a clear view of the nights sky. I was admiring the beauty of the stars when my attention was quickly drawn towards a small and very dim star. To my surprise the star started moving from it’s Fixed location. It then stopped. Another started moving from its fixed location and then passed the previous star. The objects were very high in altitude. I am not certain as to how high up. But further then most commercial airliners. They were not airplanes. They resembled a star or a burning sphere. There were no trails on these two crafts that skated across the sky with ease. I am not certain as to why I did this. But I flicked my lighter at the objects. The one that continued moving past the object/star that sat still. Suddenly and very lively swelled to three times its size. Before! flashing and disappearing. The object that had sat for about twenty seconds without going dim or lighting up. Finally started moving after the other object disappeared. It too then evaporated into nothingness almost like a dimmer switch was turned down. I was excited and stayed staring into the same sector, scanning with hope I would see something again. To my surprise the was a large flash coupled with a streak across the same area near where I had just viewed these objects. It was what most people would consider a shooting star. But it didn’t really feel like it was that to me. It was blue to white and shot very rapidly towards the same direction the objects had disappeared to.
