White light flying high over Livermore Valley near Sandia/Lawrence Livermore Lab

This may seem a little mundane.

But I've seen these many times in the night's sky since February of this year(2005). I also want to mention that I live about 3 miles away from Sandia/Lawrence Livermore Lab.

It was only a white light moving across the night sky. The thing that caught my eye, was the fact that it was moving very erratically.

I know how a plane moves. Very predictable. This was darting left, pause, and then right, Over and over again as it was going from west to east across the sky.

I believe this object and all the other's that I've seen are in the stratosphere and or near space. It's hard to tell the size. It all depends how far out they are. If you've ever seen a satillite, it's very close to looking like that.

The difference is, when I was younger in the 1980's, they used to arc very predictably across the sky. These do appear like a dot of light in the heavens, except that these things tac like a boat would if you wanted to turn on the open sea. Left-Right-Left-Right.

The object I saw tonight though was moving so extreme I felt compelled to report it. If you've ever seen any video of how these things move, you know what I'm talking about.

My background: I've been a Machinist for over a decade. I have a 4 year old daughter. I'm just a private citizen whose interested in the paranormal.
