My friend and I were out fishing on a public dock on Sand Lake in the south part of the Anchorage Bowl. The sun had set and we were about to wrap things up when I mentioned that because of the clear sky and recent climate change that we might be able to see the Northern Lights if we stuck around a bit longer until it was completely dark outside. I was taking in my line and getting my fly rod ready to put it into its case when, out of the corner of my eye, something caught my attention. There was an odd movement in the sky. I redirected my gaze up to my left (Southwest) to see what appeared to be a star of medium brightness making erratic movements in the sky. The spot of light was moving at quite remarkable speeds in an 'S' pattern and then shot off across the night sky at a perfectly straight trajectory from southwest to north at about 11 inches (from my perspective) a second. It then faded into obscurity slowly as it sped into the distance of space above the earth. Then more of these spots began speeding across the sky at breakneck speeds, one after another, back and forth. We must have seem at least a dozen of them. At the height of the activity there were three together in a small portion of the horizon. Two of them almost collided as they crossed paths. One of the spots made an instantaneous 30 degree turn as if it were a billiard ball being banked off of a rail. It was quite curious to be sure. Neither of us could decide what we were actually seeing. The Objects moved far too swift and precisely to be any sort of conventional aircraft or even spacecraft.
