Location: Moorehead, KY
Shape: Flash
Duration:app. 10 minutes
A single object that looked like a star at first glance, however object moved and had variable light (Bright to unseen pulsating)

I am not sure of what I saw, however I know for sure is was unlike anything I had ever seen before. I am a truck driver and was returning from a run and was near Moorehead KY when I observed what appeared to be a bright star at first glance. However, being fairly familiar with the stars I knew this wasnt one. This object appeared in the ENE sky at about the 1:00 position on the horizon. It started as very bright, and then dimmed until it had disappeared, and continued on this cycle for about 3 minutes. At the dimmest, it was not visable, however at the brightest, it appeared to be a greenish color, almost neon bright. Then the object moved across the horizon to the WNW horizon, leaving a tail such as a comet would, then stopping and proceeded to repeat the cycle of dim to bright. After about 3 minutes at this position, it returned to its origional position, repeated the cycle, then disappeared. I can not say for sure this was a ufo, or what it was, however I do beleive I know what it was not. I am sure it was not a star or any visable planet, and I am reasonably sure this was no military aircraft. Anyway, I thought you may want to check this out. Sorry, no photos were taken as no camera was available.
