Anyone who knows me will know I'm the "yeah righ, I'll believe it when I see it" type... but last night, honestly, I saw "it" Now before we go any further, I have to say I don't think it was aliens but I'll explain why at the bottom.
I was outside with my telescope at around 10:20pm... a nearby neighbour has a tree to the east and I was just lining up my scope with the Hercules Cluster (low in the north-east) when I glanced a rapidly moving bright light (about the same brightness as the star Arcturus) moving along the top of the tree.
It looked like a bright meteor so I stopped and looked up. It had stopped moving though, it was just sitting there. After a few moments it shot forward again, to the north, then stopped and shot forward again at a dead right angle to the east before vanishing about a second later.
It had a white and red light. I think both were flashing on and off but not like an airplane. It was more like the lights were fading in and out over a few seconds.
Now, Lawton is right next to Fort Sill, which is the US Army's main training ground with field artillery. (I think they test stuff here too, but I'd have to ask Deja) There are numerous air force bases around. On top of this, we've seen a stealth bomber moving silently (and very eerily) overhead so I'm under no illusions - this was the DoD playing with their toys.
What I found equally interesting was that, ten minutes later, as I was packing up, an unmarked helicopter passed fairly low nearby…
