Time: 8:30pm and 9:30pm
Location of Sighting: Wood County, West Virginia, USA
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 3
Shape of Objects: Round.
March 7,2009 - In the eastern sky I saw an object traveling north that appeared to be a satellite in brightness and trajectory, except it was illuminated when I first saw it, then it dimmed and wasn't visible for a few seconds, then illuminated again further on it's trajectory. I dashed inside for the camera and binoculars, but the object was gone when I returned.
March 8, 2009 9:30pm eastern daylight savings time.
Weather- Storm front approx. 75 miles to the west, scattered thin, wispy, clouds with a bright 95% Full Moon.
After a few minutes looking skyward, while closing the garage doors ahead of an approaching storm, I saw a bright yellow-orange flash from behind me that cast a shadow on the doors. Thinking it was lightning, I turned to the east northeast and saw a brilliant yellow-orange ball of light and began shouting for my wife. The light appeared to be moving away from the earth at approximately a 40 degree angle while drifting slightly to my left. The object was visible for approx. 30 seconds before quickly dimming and shrinking. My wife arrived in time to see nothing, this time.
We spent 10-15 minutes in the yard watching skyward and she had gone back into the house as I stayed and watched for a few more minutes.
I had just headed inside, glanced back and saw the same, or identical, object a little farther north. I pounded on the house and ran to get beyond a tree. My wife arrived and saw the object brilliantly lit, moving, then fading in the same manner as the sighting 20 minutes earlier.
During the time between the two sightings on March 8, two aircraft passed over, one headed east, one headed south. The objects appeared to be higher, larger, and farther away than the aircraft.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
