I think I saw a UFO.

I was taking a bag of trash down to our garage. As is my habit, I paused in my driveway to look up at the sky. I like looking at the stars. The object caught my attention at once because I had never seen a bright star in that part of the sky (south west), and never any star as bright. It did not appear to be a solid light. The best description I can give is was it seemed to twinkle or glisten. I could see no real shape, just light. Moreover, as I stood staring at it, I saw it move.

It would drop down a short distance, then move back up to about it's original position. Then down again, only then at about a 45 degree angle. then up again at slimmer angle. Then it moved in a straight line a short space to it's left. It repeated this pattern again and again. After watching this for about five minutes I ran into the house to wake my wife and had her come to see what I was seeing.

The two of us watched this thing for about 15 minutes, and it terrified her. We have lived on this property 33 years. We often sit our on the deck nights looking up at the sky. We have seen passenger jets fly over, small aircraft and even medivac helicopters. Never anything like this. What spooked her most was it made no sound.

My wife said she no longer felt safe standing out in the driveway and headed into the house, insisting I go in with her. I have no idea how much longer the object reminded in sight. I only regret it never occurred to me to grab our handycam and recorded the object.

I am not a drinker and the only drugs I take are to treat my Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is what I saw and am reporting it thinking it might be important.
