Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes til cloud cover
Orange/white light appears in sky over Waikiki moving erratically at very high altitude, stationary stars in background.

Sitting on balcony 26 floors up at Rainbow Tower, Hilton Hawaiian Village, gazing at the last few planes departing Hawaii, and looking up at stars. Saw object that seemed very high up moving across sky. Immediately assumed it was a satelite due to its seemingly unusually high altitude. Then it started to jump around sporadically in all directions. I watched for about a minute or two, then quickly went in hotel room to grab my camera. After fully zooming, it took me about 20 seconds to get object in field of view, and when i did I recorded this movement for about 2 1/2 minjutes or so. I yelled at my wife who was sleeping and told her to get up as I beleive I was seeing a UFO. Just after she got to balcony significant cloud cover interfered with real time viewing. I proceeded to download video onto my computer, and after several viewings I started to look for anything else in background that might be stationary, and fortunately located three stars that are much further away, of course, and they remain relatively stationary in video whikle thius object moves all over the screen, proving that the movement was not the resuklt of cmaera shake.
