It was about 9:32 P.M. on the west coast. i had just finished watching Family Guy and looked out my window at this star i had been watching for the past couple of nights. After a few minutes i saw a white light appear beside the star, it began to fall twards the earth. I thought this was kind of strange, but i continued to watch it fall, not wishing to record the event(pictures/movie ect.). I thought of it as a meterorite or somthing, and relitivly cool to watch. The object had then been falling for about a minute, when it began to change. It started turning red, darker and darker and getting larger and larger. At this point i thought it was going to explode because of the heat from entering the atmosphere, this happened for about 30 seconds, at which point i noticed that this was mot a meterorite, because it was leaving no trail. I wanted 2 grab my camera but was enthraled to stay and watch, just to see if I was wrong. At this point it turned white again, I knew then I had to grab my camera. I watched for a few more seconds and it began to flash bright red, becoming about 15 times the size every time it did so. I went and grabed my camcorder, turned it on, no tape, ran back and grabbed a tape, switched the tape and hit record. I could not see anything through my camera, so I ran outside and turned on the nightshot. The street light was blocking my nightshot workage. I soon figured out if I placed my hand to the side of the camera the light wouldn't hit the lens. All this took about 2 minutes to take place. At this time the light was moving horizontally across the sky as opposed to vertically. I filmed it with some shakey hand work, I then saw a commercial airliner, I decided to film that so there would be some refferance as to what airoplanes looked like on my camera, when I looked back at the object it had dropped down again and was now flying horizontally behind some trees. I got a few seconds of that and when it disappeared i turned off the camera and watched to se! e if it returned. It didn't, but it left me with some great footage, and an even better story. And once I get this program on my computer working so I can capture my film I'll send it in.
