|Light (s) routinely spotted from East to West during the past one an half years
Ball of light, ususally one and sometimes two. These have been seen for the past year and a half. The ball appears high in the Eastern sky, estimated altitude of 100K ft. plus, at approximately 75 degrees and proceeds at a high rate of speed diagonally towards the southwest stops at my 110 degrees vertically and at approximately 25 degrees from my horizontal. Somwhere over Los Angeles. It then makes a straight beeline towards the north, stops at approximately over La Canada or 10-15 degrees north of my horizontal and then heads east to the original point. It will often stop and repeat the pattern or will execute a right turn and head straight south and out of sight. Other times when it turns to the North it keeps on going until out of sight. When there are two lights, they fly in irregular patterns and sometimes seem to go around in circles like they are chasing each other. Then, one will stop and the other goes off to the South West. Very seldom, a pulse trail appears when the light starts to move from a stopped position and it will also change to a dull orange or red color when it comes to a stop. The time of tracking is normally seconds ie. 5-10. Sometimes, they move in straight lines, but most of the time, they travel in a slight waving pattern at a high rate of speed. I have been seeing this phenonomimum with both the naked eye (my vision is pretty close to 20/20) and with 7x35 W/A binoculars. Last month, my son (age 25 and his friend (same age) also seen it with me at approx. 11:30 PM. I have been spotting this light(s) on a routine basis, normally between 9-9:45 pm and again at between 11:00 and 11:45 pm.
Prior to this light(s) appearing in the night sky, nothing other than a shooting star had appeared until August of 2004. At that time, I seen a dull red ball of light go lazily accross the sky from the East to the West at 8:45 pm and follow the same pie/wedge travel pattern. It traveled at approximately 110 degrees to my vertical of 90. The total time was maybe 3-4 minutes. Thereafter, the light(s) began appearing. I am no hokster. I purposly kept this to myself and close confidents because of potential ridicule. Hope you can explain what is going on. I will give you my business address for your records.
