Ok, this is what happened. First I have to say that I NEVER believed in any such thing as a UFO. Never - until last night. It was about 1:30 am and my husband and I were getting ready for bed. My husband decided to let the dog out to do its business before we went to bed. Thats when he saw a bright white light (similar to a star) in the sky. He began yelling for me to immediately come to his side. When I came he asked me to look up in the sky and tell him what I saw. I was in complete shock. There was a light flashing at approx. 1 second intervals with a red light on the left and a green light on the right. The red and green lights were also flashing but not in unison with the white light. My first thought was that it was a dying star, but why were there red and green lights? Then the object began to move in quick speeds, first moving vertically up and then vertically down. The speed of the light was simply amazing. It was not something humanly achievable. Then the light began moving at an angle (approx. 70 degrees NE) with quick speed and again resuming back to its original location. Anytime the light would resume back to its original location, the light would slightly oscilate until stability was reached. At times the light was at a stand still and did not move. It appeared that the light was not in our atmosphere, but slightly above, hovering over it. Then the light began to move in arch like motion across the sky with great speed and again returning with great speed back to the original location. This was no airplane, helicopter, or any man-made craft. The speed of this light was very quick and swift. There are no airports near me, nor any lakes (this was not a reflection of any kind). I must also add that NO sounds were emitting from the light. It was silent. The light maintained this pattern for approximately 3 hours. I would also like to add that I was not drunk, under the influence of anything, nor am I an insane person. I know what I saw - believe what you want.
