Duration:2 hours
Numerous star-like lights moving in all directions spanning across the night sky.

Although my actual strange and unexplainable experience took place almost three years ago, I hope it's not too late to report it and that the information may be useful or helpful to you or others.

At the time I was living in my small motorhome/RV which I had set up in the backyard of a friends 5 acre countryside property. I had it parked right behind the small house my friend and his disabled wife lived in so I was able to plug in to the house for electricity, water, etc. We lived about 30 km from the nearst small town and the closest nieghbors were maybe 300-400 meters, so it was quiet and on a clear night there wasn't any artificial light pollution for star gazing. As well most of the trees at the front of the property, where the house and motorhome were situated, had been cut down and lawn planted so we had a good view from horizon to horizon.

On the night of the event, I was outside of my RV so I could get better cell phone reception as I was having my weekly phone conversation with my daughter which lived an hour and a half away. By this time it was approx 22:00 and completely dark with a gorgeous clear view of the night sky, I noticed two stars in the eastern part of the sky that seemed to be moving 2-3 inches, from my point of view, to the west and then back to thier original position. This happened a few times in a 2 or 3 minute span, so I told my dauhhter that I would call her back in a couple of minutes so I could concentrate on them and see if they were actualy moving or just my imagination. Within 5 minutes of watching them they had started moving around at distances that confirmed my suspicions, and it wasnt just 2 star but now there was 4 then 5 then 6 and so on, I couldnt believe what I was seeing!! There were stars from all areas and all over the night sky moving across the sky, zig zagging, some just moving in a staight line, some darting everywhere, and all at different rates of speed. I seriously thought I was having some kind of medical issue with my head or eyes or something, as I had never in my life witnessed anything abnormal in life such as ufo's, ghosts's, etc. I ran into my friend's house and told him what I was seeing and to come out and look, as well I picked up his disabled wife in my arms and carried her outside, I wanted as many people as I could get to see this so that maybe people would believe me.

Well to make a long story short all three of us watched this show go on for approx. 2 hours and ended up counting over 30 stars at one time moving great distances across the sky, as for the 2 initial stars I first noticed they ended up coming very close to us, it's hard to say for sure but they were'nt more than 300-400 meters off the ground and 10-15 km away from us as the crow flies, they just slowly were cruising along at the same altitude and stopped what i believed was over a nearby indian reservation for 10 mins or so then slowly cruised on and then lost sight of them behind tall trees. I know how this sounds and I did make several calls as this was taking place but everyone I spoke with claimed it was cloudy in thier area and thought I was making some kind of joke.

That's my ordeal and to this day I still don't know what to make of it because I didnt see any type of crafts, all they were was lights that looked exactly like stars and except for the two that came close all the rest looked as if they were in space just as if they were normal stars but moved like the were being operated by someone or something.

Thanks for listening and if anyone else has ever seen anything similiar please let me know?
