I saw a craft that probably was not from earth.

There was a sighting previous to this one which displayed certain similarities to the one explained. We were walking down a boardwalk right after work. The airport was to the right, to the east - about five miles away. I saw a light hovering in that direction. At first it looked to be a helo or close plane. Then, as quickly as I spotted it, it started moving sporadically; first to the left, then to the right, then back, then back, then up, then down, then 20,000 mph to the right and gone. Don't worry, I'm fully convinced that it was a gov't craft - or worry. The only thing I have trouble with is that about four years before, I witnessed a craft do the same type of motion, exactly. And not only that; we were talking about that previous experience when this one occurred. However, my previous observation was of a craft that was so far away it was equal to a satelite in distance. I grew up watching stars and planets and I do know what I am talking about. Currently, I own a four and a half inch reflector telescope which I can see the rings on Saturn and the moons of Jupiter. Well, four of them. Back to the original story; This craft was so close it could have been a local craft before it started to move in a manner consistent with a non-earth-craft type of motion. I hear the Discovery channel skeptics who relate observations like this one to energy and motion hallucinations. These people are on the pay-roll, don't listen to them. If what I saw that night was from here, God help us. If it wasn't, God really help us.
