Parkersburg, West Virginia A Round Star-Like Object

Date: September 4, 2005
Time: 6:00 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 12
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round, appeared as a star.

Full Description of event/sighting: On Sept. 4, 2005, approx. 6:00 p.m. EST, a group of 12 family members were sitting outside talking after dinner. Our attention was drawn to a powered parasail aircraft passing overhead. As we watched it, I noticed what appeared to be a star as the parasail passed in line with it. Pointing it out to the group, I commented that it was odd to see a star this early in the day. The parasail moved on and we continued watching the 'star' for several minutes. I had looked away briefly and my father-in-law said he thought it was moving to the right. I immediately looked, but it was gone. Thinking it may have been a star or planet, I looked for the object on following days and evenings with no luck. Thinking it may have the Chandra x-ray observatory, I checked the charts but it was not in that location at that time. I regularly watch the shuttle and space station but am at a loss to explain this.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
