Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
a light about the brightness of a star doing figure eights and circles.

It was approximately 11:00 pm and I was out on my back deck that faces north smoking a cigarette. I was looking up at the sky like i usually do when im outside at night to look at the stars etc. I happened to look north east and noticed very high in the sky there was a light about the brightness of a star moving very quickly, faster than any of the local planes that usually fly over. The light was not blinking any lights and there was no noise to it, there was a plane to the south east sky (blinking lights were visible and it was lower than the light I saw), the single light started to make figure eights. I quickly reached inside to shut off the back deck light to see if my my eyes were playing tricks on me, keeping my eyes on the light I hollered at my boyfriend to come outside. The light then began to make cirles in the sky and as it finished the second circle it headed east and disappeared. I went to the east side of my deck to check if maybe it had just ! been blocked by the trees, but it was still nowhere to be seen. My boyfriend came out a few seconds later and I described what I saw and he agreed that he had never seen any of the local planes do something like that either.
