Full Description of event/sighting: My ex-husband and I lived in Chico, CA at the time of this sighting. We lived a very short distance from the Chico Airport.

My husband and I went outside for a cigarette and I noticed how clear the sky looked. I decided to go for a walk around our cull-de-sac. While looking up, I noticed that there was what I thought at first to be an airplane flying so incredibly high in the sky. What I saw was what appeared to be a very bright star, a white light, moving at a very slow pace. It just seemed to catch my eye, so I stopped and watched it's progression across the night sky. Suddenly it's pace picked up and it started to zig zag dramatically across the sky. Still thinking it might be an airplane, I called my husband over to look, because I thought perhaps the plane had lost control and might crash. Suddenly, it stopped moving all together. It was just stationary. My husband and I stared in awe for the next 5-10 minutes while this object went from stationary to flying again. It's movements after it became stationary were sporadic. It seemed to move very quickly forward, and then backward. I've never seen anything like that in my life.

It was moving across the night sky almost from spot to spot as if it was jumping. Then it would jump back to where it was before. We tried to see if there was some pattern, but there wasn't. It went back to flying straight again and then started to fly upwards further into the sky. We only lost sight of it because it disappeared in front of our eyes. I've never believed in UFO's in my life prior to this. This situation was scary and amazing to me all at the same time. I was in a panic in the middle of my neighborhood yelling, "Oh my god, Oh my god" I have no doubt in my mind that what I saw was real, and was not an airplane. I've received much ridicule when sharing this story with immediate family and so this is the first time I share my story with anyone else. BTW- I also checked "" to see if there were supposed to be any meteor showers or unusual celestial events that night, and there were none.

Thank you to the witness for a very interesting sighting.
