From our backyard catwalk, I saw an extremely bright white light suddenly appear almost overhead. My wife and her sister were with me but could not see the small white object probably due to a large tree branch hanging just above them.

At arm’s length, it was approximately one-fourth to one-fifth the size of a pencil eraser, and it was really bright.

After its sudden appearance, it stayed in one spot for five to six seconds, next – it moved to the left about 20 times it width, then, it moved to the right about 40 times its width.

About this time, I tried to get my wife and her sister to see the object – telling them that it looked like a really bright star, but they never saw it.

To get a better view, I got out of my chair and moved away from the over-hanging tree branch. Just as suddenly as it appeared, it disappeared into the blue. Total viewing time was 15 to 20 seconds.

What made this sighting a little bit weird was that a large jet airliner flew ! directly into the same area where the UFO had been less than a minute before bringing with it a long, wide contrail.
