Duration:about 1 minute
Its was a crisp clear night during the summer of 1996 and my roommate and I were sitting on the beach behind some local clubs.We had gotten off work about an hour earlier and we decided to sit on the beach and relax. We were making small talk and I was checking out the stars because we both have a fascination with the universe. I was watching a satellite hover by across the sky when I noticed a bright light like a star(but brighter) hovering back and forth. I asked her if she could see it but she couldn't quite point out where I was looking cause there were so many stars out that night.I watched it for about 30 more seconds and the light took off in a zig zag formation. After that I freaked out cause I know that satellites and planes DO NOT DO THAT!! I will never forget the experience! THEY R OUT THERE!!
