National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/13/1969 21:15 (Entered as : 10/13/69 21:15)
Reported: 1/27/2002 6:13:37 AM 06:13
Posted: 1/29/2002
Location: Millington, TN
Shape: Formation
Duration: 72 hours
Star-like, 8-point inverted V-shape, changed to V-shape, executed 1-second shift from directly South to directly West.

Same star-like formation reported recently by a Ret. Lt. Genl (USAF).

This is in response to the Ret. Lt. Genl. (USAF) who reported the same sighting in the fall of 2001, which I saw in the fall of 1979. When I was 8, my older brother and I nightly analyzed the sky for 2.5 weeks as a result of frequently-reported UFO sightings. I saw an inverted-V formation of 8 lights - 4 down on each side, indistinguishable from stars, quickly invert to a V-shape and then, in about 1 second, traverse from the directly-South sky to the directly-West sky. A perfect 45-degree hemisphere shift in 1 second. I was able to point this V-shaped configuration out to others for two nights following my sighting. The Lt. Genl.'s report, which inspired mine, are similar except that the star-like formation he reported was in an inverted-V in the west, shifted to a V-shape, then traversed 45 degrees south, in about 1 second, "indistinguishable from the stars". That's 22 years that these "monitors" have been doing whatever they are doing. And I agree with the Lt. Gen'l. - there is no way this satellite technology.
