I did not see a UFO last night, but now I can attest to how a person could mistake Venus for one. Even through the overcast last night, it was extremely bright. Had I not known it was Venus, I would have been bewildered by it. And, if you are in motion in a car, or walking, or camping, it could easily be perceived as a moving object.

((NUFORC Note: We agree with the comment. NUFORC receives MANY calls and report about celestial bodies, I.e. stars and planets. PD))
