UFO was seen in approximatly same area of the sky as last night. Tonight I drove out to the country to get a better look at it. I am almost certain this is not an alien craft, but rather a military craft doing test maneuvers. For the first hour it moved around in the sky on maneuvers described last night. It appeared that 1 or possibly 2 small aircraft were staying in close proximity to the UFO, maybe observing it, but after about 15 minutes they left. Within the first hour I positivly identified an aircraft, possibly civilian or perhaps a small military craft approach the UFO. Upon getting in close proximity the aircraft did a 180 turnaround and proceeded in the opposite direction it had came from. About 20 minutes later another unidentifiable craft came down from the southern part of the sky. Craft was a bright light heading towards the UFO at a high rate of speed and downward angle, after reaching approximatly the same elevation, second craft's light went out and it disappeared. Not sure what happened. After an hour and a half, the UFO took off across the sky in an easterly direction at a fairly high rate of speed, stopped in mid air, and traced it's path back to where it had come from. Will be checking again on 9/13 to see if it is again performing maneuvers.
