Time: approx. 9:15 pm 3/29/11 So there I was staring up at the night sky in the middle of my driveway, as I often do, looking I’m sure like some kind of nut case.

It crossed a section of the sky so fast I could barely even comprehend that I was seeing a moving object. It was so dim that I could barely make it out at all. If I hadn’t been looking up at that exact moment I would have missed it. It moved silently and very fast. As I moved, turning my head and sidestepping to follow it, I tripped on the dogs chain (the dog moved because I startled her with my sudden movement) and lost sight of it behind the neighbors tree.

I can’t even guess at the altitude. I have no clue at all. If I was forced to make a guess I would say it was flying no higher than 1,000 feet but for all I know it could have been at 10,000 feet or more.

I estimate the “sighting” to have lasted around two to three seconds and definitely no more than four seconds. As far as the size goes I can only hold my arm out and guess that it was taking up a space of 1” to 1-1/2” inches at arm’s length in the night sky.

Nobody else could have possibly seen it unless they happened to be looking up at that exact moment and exact place. It was barely perceptible against the night sky. Even if someone was next to me they would not have had time to look up and focus on it to verify it. I did see what I just described. No doubt in my mind at all. None.
