This is the fourth report concerning the "lights" I have seen in the skies near Austin, Texas.

I placed lights in quotation marks because I am now convinced they were not lights at all but certainly had the appearance of a high altitude light, similar to a passing satellite.

It hs been my long experience that it is extremely dificult to judge the appearance, speed and altitude of objects seen in the sky from ground level. Once while stationed at Holloman AFB NM, I viewed what appeared to be very fast moving objects flying over a nearby mountain range. It turned out to be a flock of geese.

Since NM has always been famous for unexplained sightings it is easy to wrap one's brain around that possibility.

This evening I was able to focus my binoculars on the objects I have been seeing. The result was blobs which I now believe are flying spider webs which are prevelant in this area. The remaining problem in my mind is tht the objects do seem to speed up, slow down, and make turns which would not normally be the characteristic of wind borne objects.

I hope someone else will be able to provide additional sightings and info.
