Duration: 5 Minutes
09/04/08 at approximately 22:10 hours a bright light moved West to East, zigged and zagged then disappeared.

On 08/04/08 myself, my wife and 2 sons were in our hot-tub, the time was approximately 22:10 hours. My son said "Dad look at that light there in the sky, see how bright it is and close that it is, just watch it, it will zig and zag even stop then disapear, I saw it the other night and my friends thought I was nuts". We all sat on the edge of the hot-tub and watched this low light that was moving at a pretty fast pace then slowed to a stop, zigged and zagged, seemed to go south then back north then continued it's movement in the eastward sky. Then just as my son said it simply disappeared. My son said this same thing happened a few days before except it was in the Northern sky from our house moving West to East. My sighting was in the Southern Sky moving West to East. The funny thing about this was there no sound, just a bright, bright light. No flashing lights like an airplane just an extremely bright light. There was not a cloud in the sky to have it disappear as it did, but the funny thing was, it did everything that my son said would happen, from what he had experienced a few days before. We are a very normal family and wouldn't report this for fun. It was just something that none of us had ever witnessed before except my 22 year old son. I know it was not a plane or anyway one that was common to us.
