Reported: 7/22/2008 12:56:37 PM 12:56
Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Dallas, TX
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright light came out from behind nothing, stopped on a dime and then proceeded to fly back behind nothing... cloudless sky.

While on a Boy Scouts camping trip, myself and my friend were laying awake late at night on our chairs, which were laid out to the flattened position, so we were looking up at the stars and just talking about something.

Suddenly, something that looked like a bright star came out from behind nowhere Ė (or more specifically, it looked like it came out from behind something like a cloud, but there were no clouds in the sky at all, it was perfectly clear) Ė and flew at a fast pace to a certain point, where it then stopped on a dimeÖ.

It sat still for a couple of seconds and then was suddenly moving again, headed in the same direction it was heading before it stopped, without any acceleration, it was just moving that fast again. It then seemed to disappear behind something again, though there were no clouds in the sky.

In short, it came out from behind nothing, stopped on a dime, and then proceeded on itís path and went back to behind nothing againÖ My friend and I both saw it, looked at each other, jumped up and ran to our tent. Thatís the only thing like that that Iíve ever seen and Iím glad my friend saw it too or I would have thought I imagined it.
