Location: Burna, KY
Shape: Changing
Duration: 15-20 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I noticed what I thought was a "shooting star".

I was leaving a friend's house and noticed what I thought was a "shooting star" in the Eastern sky. As I watched the light stopped and started to go back up. I brought this to the attention of my friend who was standing on his front porch. He and I both watched the object move in several different directions. It would move to the right , then back to the left. At times it would make zig-zag movements and appeared to go in circles. The movements were very fast. I can't think of any known aircraft that is capable of the speed or the movements that this object was making. We both tried to get a better look with binoculars, but we couldn't keep up with the movement. It appeared at times to turn to the side and when it did, it appeared to be two lights instead of one. The object appeared to pulsate, not blink on and off. After leaving the house I stopped and lined up my sight with a stationary object (a power line pole) just to be sure that it wasn't my eyes causing the object to appear to move. The object continued the erratic movements until I finally lost sight of it about twenty minutes after first sighting it.
