Star-like, red glow, zig-zagging in the sky.

MONDAY, I BEGAN A MUCH ANTICIPATED 3 NIGHT TRIP WITH MY SISTER AND HER DAUGHTER TO GREENBO STATE RESORT PARK. I RETURNED YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). THE FIRST NIGHT I WAS ON THE BACK BALCONY JUST WATCHING THE SKY AND NOTED HOW BRIGHT THE MOON WAS THIS NIGHT.

THE OTHER TWO CAME OUT AND WE WERE DISCUSSING WHAT THAT STAR WAS BELOW AND TO THE LEFT OF THE MOON. I SAID IT WASN'T MARS (I HAD NOT CHECKED A STAR CHART) BECAUSE IT WASN'T RED. AT THAT TIME, IT TURNED TO A REDDISH GLOW AND SHOT ABOUT 2 HAND WIDTHS UPWARD, WENT BACK TO A SILVER STAR COLOR, DID A 90 DEGREE LEFT JAG, THEN IMMEDIATELY TURNED REDDISH AGAIN AND ANOTHER JAG UPWARDS. THEN IT DID A 90 DEGREE TURN RIGHT, STOPPED, CHANGED TO A SILVER AND WENT UPWARDS UNTIL OUT OF SIGHT! THIS ALL OCCURRED IN ABOUT 3-4 SECONDS. IF WE HAD NOT BEEN LOOKING, WE WOULD HAVE MISSED IT.

I SPOKE TO A STAFF MEMBER AND WAS TOLD THEY SEE THESE ALL THE TIME. THIS PLACE IS AWAY FROM CITIES AND MAKES STAR-GAZING MUCH EASIER WITHOUT ANY "CITY" LIGHTS CASTING GLOWS. A VERY RELAXING PLACE TO GO. WE WERE LATER THIS YEAR BECAUSE WE USUALLY GO BEFORE THE "SUMMER SEASON" AND AFTER IT.
