'Tis the season for UFO return
This was supposed to be the coolest evening since last spring, with frost warnings posted in some parts of the state. I decided to walked out on the deck to check out the moonlit sky before going off to bed. Looking to the East, I saw nothing out of place. The dogs over on the ridge, however, were barking at something, so I continued to watch.
From nowhere, a fairly bright amber colored object appeared just above the tree line. It moved silently in a northward direction, speeding up, then slowing down and almost stopping at regular intervals. At first, I thought the object's erratic movement to be a result of my own eye movement, but as I continued to watch, referencing the object's position to the outline of trees on the ridge, I concluded that the object was clearly changing its airspeed. The intensity of the object varied from moment to moment as it passed through the area.
At the same time the object was in view, an aircraft with standard lighting flew directly over my position in a northeast direction, emitting no discernible sound. It was flying at about two thousand feet, which was fairly low, but considerably higher than the object. I don't see how the pilot would not be able to observe the object, as well. I went on to bed, but at 12:14, I woke up and walked outside just in time to see a similar or the same object pass behind the trees and out of sight as the dogs barked excitedly. 'tis the season!
