I went out star gazing last night (3-9-05) with binoculars. After looking at Orion for 1/2 an hour I started looking NNE. I was just staring into the dark night and a few faint starts when I saw a small red light moving.
I tracked it for about 10 seconds then I noticed it another red light just like it moving in the same direction but slower, like the first one caught up with it. Then after passing it the first object came almost to a stop made a small maneuver then zoomed past the second slower object it just passed. Then it slowed down while moving back across the sky a little then doing the same thing, turning around.
This went on for a while back and forth, also the little red lights would seem to hover or stand still periodically, and get super fast for a few seconds before returning to that same path they were on. It was like they were on a patrol.
After about 30 minutes of this a third red light appeared, but only moving faster in one direction (west) then disappearing, not flying so far I couldn’t see, but completely vanishing!
After 40 minutes the two original objects disappeared. While staring into my binoculars at the same area and slowing scanning back and forth I noticed a small bluish-white light moving west. I track the object that was moving faster than the 2 red objects earlier. Then it started getting dimmer and vanished. It took about 2 or 3 seconds for it to fade away.
I stood there staring at the same area with goose bumps all over my body. All I could see was dark night and a few faint stars. No with my lenses glued to that area nothing was moving. Then what looked like three stars in a triangular pattern in the night sky suddenly started moving... south and fast! I tracked the 3 bluish white lights for about 20 seconds then 1 by 1 each dot/object disappeared, faded, vanished.
I then threw my binoculars in my car, got it and took off.
If the witness was not observing satellites in the night sky, then we have no idea what he was seeing. PD
