"Stars" appear to move.

I have never seen anything like the sightings most of your correspondents report; I'm submitting this on the advice of a friend who has had sightings.

I was taking my dog into my back yard on the leash. I felt a slight surge of energy & looked up, there was what appeared to be a star overhead. As I stood looking at it, it appeared to move. I figured it was actually I who moved, so found a place to lie down. The "star" continued to move, back & forth & up & down, in what appeared to me to be a random manner. I watched for awhile, then went in for the night.

I've been watching for the past several nights, & gradually become aware of more "moving stars". I sometimes have sensations in peripheral vision like small bursts of light, or meteors/"falling stars", but this never happens when I'm looking directly at the area where these occur. On one occasion, I was watching the "star" closest to overhead, when I noticed another light with peripheral vision that had not been there before. Unlike the lights I'd been watching, this one moved in a straight line, & I assumed it was a plane, but it suddenly disappeared.
