|shooting star like object that gets really close and moves up and down then shoots off without a noise!
I was sitting on my back porch last night and something caught my eye which looked like a shooting star at first. It started off dim and then got brighter but unlike a shooting star which fades fast it kept getting brighter and closer as close as a plane in the nights sky and then slowed down. It had a reddish amber glow which emenated an aura around it.
It moved irradically up and down and diagonal then before I could call my wife out to see it, it shot across the horizon as fast as a shooting star and then disappeared without a noise.
I have never seen a plane move like that before and the direction and speed of travel was out of this world.
I was shocked so I sat outside to perhaps see it again and I did see a star which started to move like a sattelite but was much brighter. It was super bright and moved very slow across the night sky from the point of the big dipper East towards the mountains. This was different than what I had seen earlier but still pretty cool.
It seemed to get brighter and brighter filling the night sky and then dimmed fast and out of sight. Not that It was past the horizon to where I couldnt see it any longer because when it had dimmed it was right above me. Very strange.
I guess I need to focus on the stars more often because you can see crazy stuff. I notice that more and more u.f.o sightings are happening more regularly I wonder if 2012 end of the world hooplah has something to do with more and more u.f.o sightings. I guess I won't know until 2013.
