Posted: 5/24/2005
Location: Fayetteville (near), NC
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Fast moving object that would just stop and then dart off and then just stop again.

At the time of the sighting I lived right outside Fort Bragg, NC.

I thought at first that it was a shooting star or perhapps a military plane, because they flew over my home on a regular basis, but this object was different, so it made me stop and look twice.

The object was pretty far up in the sky, it was a bright round looking light. What made me look twice was the fact that the light was sitting still and then it would suddenly dart to a new location and remain still in that spot for a few moments and then dart to a new spot that was a good distance from the last. I just could'nt take my eyes off of it.

This went on for about 8-10 minutes and then it just took off in secounds out of sight, what looked to me to be upward. I had never seen anything that could move so quickly and then just stop and levatate.

I have seen lots of military aircraft being so close to Ft. Bragg and Pope AFB, but I had never seen anything move like this before.

I never told anyone what I had seen that night. I just wonder if I was the only one that saw it or did it show up on the military radar.
