|UFO appears twice consecutively at almost same exact time.
On the evening of 6/24/06 and 6/25/06 at 2354(E.S.T.) both evenings, my girlfriend and I were both witnesses to an UFO event. Earlier in the afternoon on 6/24/06, we were cleaning out my closet and found my night-vision moncular and decided it would be fun to look at the stars through the monocular later in the evening. At 2354 that evening(6/24/06), we turned off the lights in my single-story condominium and proceeded outside on my patio, which does not have a screen. I turned on the night-vision monocular and looked upward directly above my head (12 o'clock high position)and was looking at a brighter star and then proceeded to focus the monocular. Once in focus to my amazement, I noticed movement of a dimly glowing circular object in the reticle. The object gave off a glow as well in the night-vision monocular and I advised my girlfriend, "Honey, I think there is a satellite orbiting across the sky here!" I showed her the object that was moving in a west to east straight trejectory across the sky at a phenomenal rate of speed, no turns or deceleration or acceleration were noted, therefore assuming this object was a satellite. We then proceeded into the house and got online with the NASA website to see if their were any satellites that could be seen in our area but the NASA website indicated there were no satellites visible for our viewing area. I then assumed the object was more than likely a classified satellite. To quell my curiousity, we both went out on our patio the next evening (6/25/06) and began to scan the sky in the same area with the night-vision monocular intentionally at approxiamately the same time as the evening before in anticipation of the same orbiting satellite. We were on the patio, and I told my girlfriend jokingly, "I wonder if we will get lucky and see my satellite again?" At 2354, myself looking through the night-vision and my girlfriend looking with her naked eye, she shouts,"Honey, what is that?" At precisely the same moment, the object that she described as being spherical and red in color, came into the reticle of the night-vision monocular that I was using giving off a dim glow. My description would be the same as the night before, the object was round in shape but I could not determine any color due to looking through the night-vision monocular. We both tracked the object for approxiamately 3-5 seconds, which once again appeared almost in the same exact area in the sky as the night before. Once again, the object was traveling in a west to east trajectory but was moving at a higher rate of speed than the night before, as well as performing two sudden sharp turns, one hard turn right then a second abrupt turn to the left and then disappearing behind a cloud lower on the horizon. The object had no trailing tail similar to that of a shooting star or made any noise whatsoever. The sudden dynamic turns the object made was incredible, and being a veteran of the U.S. military, I was convinced this was no conventional aircraft. In conclusion, my girfriend and I are both left with no explanation of what this object could possibly be. I assumed from the night before, in my mind, this was an orbiting satellite, now we have no clue to what this was and why has it appeared twice at night consecutively, and furthermore, why has it appeared almost at the same exact time???
