UFO SIGHTING REPORT
February 18th 2004
Date: February 18, 2004
Time: 8:30 p.m. till 9:00 p.m.
I really didn't think much of my nephew saying he wanted to use the telescope to view what someone had told him might be a satellite. That is until I went to put the garbage can out by the edge of the road. Off to the north west was a very bright circular object, 2 to 3 times brighter a larger than the north star.
As I watched this object it slowly moved to the north. All of a sudden, it took off like a rocket for about a half a second. It slowed down, then it started moving south. It slowly moved south for a few seconds then it turned moving back towards the north again. At times it would be like it was hanging in the night sky swinging like a pendulum. It would go in all directions, like someone scribbling on a piece of paper. It also had faint blinking colors such as you would see with the stars. Occasionally you could see what looked liked a tail from a comet.
At about 9:45 Eastern time I walked back outside and the object was nowhere in sight. Another thing I should point out is that my nephew said he has seen it for the last couple of days. Even first thing in the morning when they were heading to school. I don't know If anybody else has seen such an object.
