Duration:15 -20 seconds
I saw this white light flash 3 times and move to the right, flashed 3 times and moved to left and then flased again and dissapered.

This event happened last year in the summer of 2002. I was with two of friends and we were laying down on the grass one night to look at the stars. Something that we very rarely do. It was about 11pm and it was dark out. Some time passed until I spotted a circular white light above me to the left. I could tell it was very high up in the atmosphere. I would have to say about the height of a satellite or higher(If you have ever seen a passing satellite, you would know what I mean). I pointed it out to my friends and they quickly saw it too. At that point I started to get a little scared because I was actually thinking "yea right, a UFO". The circular white light then flashed 3 times and moved to the right about the length of your finger in comparison if you held it up. I could tell right there, that no craft that I know of from this planet had those capabilities. Because at that height, it had to have moved a good 500 miles(possibly more). When it flashed 3 times and moved to the right, it stayed their for about 1 second, then flashed 3 times again moved back to the left. Again it stayed their for about 1 second and flashed 3 times. But instead of it moving to the right again , it just flat out disappeared. I looked back down at my two friends and they looked at me and I said, "You did see that right?". They of course answered yes. This was my only encounter of seeing a UFO. After witnessing that, I now believe that there is something out there. This is a true story and I very well think that "white light" was not from our own planet.
