Point of Light type heavenly body in the eastern sky showed significant movement in various directions on the evening of Nov. 7.

I was "naked eye" stargazing last night (11/07/07), a perfect night for stargazing because of the stillness and clarity of the stars.

I was looking eastward, paying special attention to the flickering stars. A speck of light in the mid-level eastern sky caught my eye because of the nature of its flickering. It appeared to be multi-colored, green, white, red, brighter flickers at times. There appeared to be an almost rotational aspect to the flickering.

I began to watch it closely, primarily because of the fact that when I first laid eyes on it, I thought I detected movement. As I moved my position to be free of neighboring lights, I attempted to ascertain whether or not the object was moving. Using two objects in the sky which I was sure were stars, the object in question was in such a position with respect to the two stars that it formed an isoceles triangle. But then the object became aligned with the top-most of the two stars; minutes later it was aligned with the bottom star. I was convinced the object was moving, but so slowly as to be indiscernible.

As I changed my position, I looked down at my feet for a moment, and when I returned my gaze to the object, it was no longer there. I looked southward of where I had been looking and I thought I detected it somewhat lower in the sky but the same flashing pattern was evident, so I thought I had re-detected it.

I studied its location in the sky for a few minutes but could not detect any motion, and after awhile I went inside, it being quite chilly out and it was getting late.

I personally feel this was the first time I've ever actually witnessed what I consider to be an authentic UFO, and I just turned 50!
