Reported: 8/2/2003 1:26:28 PM 13:26
Posted: 8/4/2003
Location: Kalispell, MT
Shape: Cross
Duration: 0300
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright light in the sky/ with binoculars there were five lights in a row with two sets of two in the center like a cross

I noticed a yellowish bright light in the sky out my bedroom window. Then I noticed it wasn't moving like a plane would so I watched it and it would move only slightly then be still again. This caught my attention so I woke my husband up and we got out our binoculars and when you looked through them you could see a row of five lights then almost two sets of two from the center of the object like a cross almost. I didn't know who to report such a sighting to so I never called anyone. I watched it move very slowly over a period of hours approx. 1120p to 330am until it was out of sight. I don't know what a satillite looks like and whether it has anything to do with the fires that we have been experiencing, but thats what we saw.

((NUFORC Note: Given the long duration of the sighting, we believe that the first possibility that would have to be ruled out. PD))
