We were coming home from somewhere, my family and me, and on the way down our street we pulled over to say hello to our neighbors, who were sitting outside in chairs looking up at the sky. We asked them what they were looking at and they said "the green star up there." So we continued down the road until we reached our house. I got out of the car and watched it for a little while. The star moved slowly towards us at an extremely slow speed, almost unseeable. Then all of a sudden it shot back to a star at light speed. When it hit, the star lit up really bright for a split second, then returned to normal. No more than 10 minutes later we were over across the street in our other neighbor's driveway, talking to him. I looked up and saw a flock of black birds flying directly overhead. They made no sound, and it was pitch black out and so were the birds. It was a miracle that I saw them. It took me a long time to get everyone else to see them by pointing them out. What i've found is that ufo sightings are somewhat strangely linked with black birds somehow, I haven't figured it out yet, but I've heard other people's sightings, and some of them saw black birds too. I hope that was usefull to someone out there, and if not, oh well, it still has my attention and I know I saw what I saw, and I know that what I saw was real.

((NUFORC Note: Witness remains totally anonymous. We wonder if the "green star" may have been a twinkling star. We do not know if blackbirds traditionally fly at night, and we have no suspicion that blackbirds, or their activities, are in any way related to the presence of UFO's. PD))
