I must admit ever since I was a kid I have always wanted to see a UFO. I just finished reading a book and went to the kitchen to get some food and for some reason I went outside and looked up at the stars and thought I hope I see a UFO and when i looked up again I saw two flashing lights above a mountian across the vally from my house one red and one green naturally at first I thought it was a plane but I couldnt hear it and it wasnt moving so then I thought it could be a planet but I noticed it was swaying and moving unsteadly not smoothly like a plane and I have never seen a plane stay in one place for a long ammount of time before I kept watching for about five more minutes and came to the conclusion that its nothing and it was a plane and I must be soupid to think it was a UFO. So I ran inside and got my brother who was watching tv at the time when he saw it he told me it was a planet until it moved again back and forward very slowley the thought of it being a plane didnt really enter his head because we know what a plane flying through the night sky looks like we watched for about ten more minutes and I was still trying to get my head around what I was seeing. My brother told me to go and get the telescope so I ran to my bedroom and grabbed it I hadent used it in ages so it wasnt assembled as I proceded to assemble the tripod my brother caught it on the telescope and told me it defanitly wasnt a plane or planet he said it looked like a triangle of red,blue,green and white light. It hovered there for about five more minutes and thenvanished just as I got the tripod assembled jez I was pissed. We deciced to stay outside for a second chance of seeing it again and about three minutes later we saw it on the other side of the vally we were so happy to see it again but it was further away this time and moving slowley across the vally we decided to go and wake my mother up. She came out to have a look and said it was a plane and about ten minutes later a plane flew past we all laughed and we could hear it was a plane we then went inside and set the telescope up inside we all stood there watching it for a while and then my mum went to bed my brother and I caught it in the telescope. It was so cool through the telescope it looked like a dome but it had no apparent shape at one stage it looked like a red fireball and then a five cent coin. The colours were clearer through the telescope and were very beautiful it was mostly blue with green,red and white flashes with a hint of orange the colours kept changing as well. It didnt look like it was very steady moving around viontly my brother went to bed at about 1:35am but I stayed up watching it fly so far away that I could hardly see it I fell asleep before it dissapeared. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. NO IT WASNT A WEATHER BALOON I'M NOT THE TYPE OF PERSON TO MAKE UP A STORY LIKE THIS.
