Location: Spring Valley, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:
A Bright Light moves back, forth, and side to side, really slowly hovering around in a small area...

For the past few weeks, I've been observing this bright light in the sky. At first, I thought it was a star, but then i realized that it is too bright and too close to the earth. It looks like a really bright star, but if u pay close attention to it, u can see it hover from side to side like it is looking around for something, it also moves forward a little and then back into the same spot, up and down(back into the same spot) and it can suddenly stop. It kind of seems like it wants to move closer toward the earth, but something pulls it back into where it first was.. it moves really slow and steady and when i look really hard it looks as if there are like 5 greenish spikes coming out the top of it with a little reddish yellow light in the middle.. I've seen it for the past few weeks maybe even a month only when it gets dark outside, and it goes away when the sun comes up.. I was wondering if it might be a satellite or something of that sort, but it just seems really peculiar. I told my friend about it and she stands outside with me sometimes to view it.. sometimes i think i see like little lights or something fall from it but i only see it out of the corner of my eyes, so im not really quite sure but there is a slight purplish cloudy haze around it... Again it is a bright light almost like a very bright star, with 4-5 greenish spikes on top with a little reddish yellow in the middle... When i watch it sometimes it feels like it knows that i can see it.. its a very awkward feeling... I wish i had a telescope so i could get a very good look at it, but i can see it pretty good if i stare really hard at it.. there is no noise.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness may be looking at either Sirius or Jupiter. PD))
