My partner and I were working late one evening and arrived at our house at 3:00 am. Every night we put out cat food for the wildlife that live behind our house. As we were standing outside smoking a cigarette and waiting for the raccoons to come out, my partner mentioned how nice and clear the sky was. She told me to look at a particular star that was much bigger and brighter than the others. As we both looked at this star, we noticed that it was glowing. I had never seen a star glow like this...all of a sudden this star turns a red color and then a greenish color and then back to a white glow. We start trying to figure out whether this may be a weather balloon or some kind of plane but it's not moving. As we are talking we see much much higher up....another star doing the same. Automatically we assume this may be some kind of satelite giving off signals..which is really interesting to us, being that we had just moved from a big city and have never seen anything like this. We kept our eyes on this communication for about 5 minutes....all of a sudden this star starts to move from left to right. I think for a moment that it can be our eyes playing tricks on us....and I quickly position my self under a tree. I know for sure that this star was moving because I have a tree branch to help me figure that out. The object or star is moving while the tree branch is still. The bigger and closest star quickly dissapears and then reappears...I tell my partner not to move that I'm going in to get a camera because what we were watching didn't seem normal. I come out and take at least a dozen pictures on a digital camera. We were out a total of 35 minutes watching this. Watching these 2 stars communicating, moving etc....I don't know what it is we were watching..but the reason why I am posting this experience is because there are 2 things that don't make sense. #1 the objects/stars disappeared a minute from each other. #2 The camera only picked up the stars (although very blurry) surrounding the one cha! nging colors, but not the one that was changing colors.
