It bobbed from side to side and up and down in lazy swooping motions that seemed surreal.

March 8,2004 was a clear cool night. My husband observed the object from the bathroom window at approx. 8pm. We watched it constantly for 30 min. then it went away....faded away. It was a bright lite object with red and green lights. It was very far away, but it was the brightest thing in the sky. As we watched it bobbed around, up and down, and side to side....lazy swooping motions that seemed surreal.

Then on March 9, 2004 we noticed it again in approx. the same location. We watched it for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Same as the night before, but this time I called a cousin in Avery, Tex., about 45 miles away, and she saw it too. Both nights were clear. Temp. 45 degrees. Both nights we could see planes fly under the object, one plane seemed to drop in altitude to avoid it. It clearly was not a plane or a star.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses were observing a star or planet. PD))
