Duration: 1 hr and going
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Single bright light that moved like no airplane i have ever seen before

i happened to look outside my window into the sky and noticed a bright "star" and i thought it move. so i got up and moved closer to the window and watched this "star" for 2 minutes and continual;ly saw this "star" move in very odd ways. i then went and got my mother and my partner tio see if they could see this start moving as well. We watched it for a minute and they could see the same thing that i was....this object was moving. My sister and her friend then joined in watching this object. This object moved up and down, from left to right & right to left and in zigzagging moves. I have seen satellites and planets in the night sky before and I know what they look like. This "star" is not either of those. It is now 131 am and i have been watching this object since 1220am. This "star" is still moving same patterns.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the object was a celestial body, either a star or planet. The perceived motion of the bright object against a dark background is often reported by witnesses, and it is the result of movement of the eye, not the object being observed. It is called nystagmic movement of the eye, we believe. PD))
