|speed and direction ----indications that they were unusual
I WAS SITTING ALONE IN A BOAT ON THE INTER-COASTAL WATERWAY,FISHING FOR CAT FISH.IT WAS THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.AND THE WEATHER WAS COOL.,AND CLEAR. THE AIR WAS PLEASANTLY DRY AND VISABLITY WAS UN-LIMITED.
AS I WAS SITTING ALONE ON THE WATER WAY,I WAS LOOKING AT THE SKY,AND THE STARS. AS I WAS LOOKING FOR A SHOOTING STAR,I NOTICED TWO OBJECTS MOVING VERY HIGH,AND VERY FAST ACROSS THE SKY.SINCE I HAD UNLIMITED VISABILITY ,I WAS ABLE TO SEE THESE OBJECTS AS THEY APPEARED TO TRAVEL AT A VERY HIGH ALTITUDE ,AT A GREAT SPEED.
AS I WATCHED THESE OBJECTS,I NOTICED AS THEY APPEARED TO GO NORTH,AND THEN ABRUPTLY TURNED DIRECTION,AND WENT IN AN ALMOST REVERSED DIRECTION.ALTHOUGH THERE APPEARED TO BE NO NOISE AND NO BLINKING LIGHTS,I DID NOTICE THAT THEY WERE VERY BRIGHT IN A "WHITE LIGHT" AS I SAT THERE WATCHING THESE OBJECTS ,I WAS AMAZED THAT THEY APPEARED TO BE TRAVELING BOTH VERY FAST ,AND VERY SILENT ,BUT MOVED IN FORMATION LIKE DIRECTIONS. I WATCHED THEM AS THEY APPEARED TO BE PRECISE IN DIRECTION AND MOVEMENT, .
AFTER APPROX.FORTY MINUTES THESE OBJECTS, WENT NORTHWARD AND THEN SEEMED TO GO OUT OF SIGHT BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE THEY WERE AWAY FROM ME.
