Witness: Mr. A. X
Number of witnesses present: 2 my wife
Sighting Duration: 2.5hrs approx.
Occupation: Fibre optic technician
Observation: I was looking from our backyard in the sky, like I always do when smoking a cigaret. it was dark and I was looking at the stars, I looked towards south to south/west. I saw in the distance a bright object in the sky with random flashing white, red, blue and greenish/yellow lights. I saw the object behind the branches of a tree and could see it was moving pretty fast to the left and stayed in one spot again, after a minute or so it moved back to its original spot where again it stayed in the same spot, then it moved down and started moving all over the place. at this moment I called my wife out to see if I wasn't imagining things. see came out and immediately saw what I saw, we kept looking together for a while and the whole time it was just hovering from left to right and up and down. my wife went back inside and i kept looking. I have been outside for 40 minutes looking at the object and it kept doing it's routine before going back inside. I kept checking up on the lights and every time I looked it moved a bit further down the horizon, it moved in a different direction then the stars, it did not move like a plain, helicopter, satellite or anything I can think of..
