My friend and I were walking to the store, we have to walk through a pretty dark parking lot to get there. We were both looking at the stars while we were walking. I looked at what appeared to be a big beautiful shining star. But then it started 'zig-zagging' all around. We could see another craft not very far from it but it was VERY dim.

There were white streaks going back and forth between them. Every time the streaks came from the dimmer craft there was a wide beam of blue light emulating from it. And every time the streak came from what looked to be a star, it jumped backwards across the sky like a grasshopper.

We watched it go on for about 45 minutes. We saw one other 'zig-zagging' star further in the NE sky. It was by itself, or so it seemed. They were both the brightest things in the sky and we watched them both go from one side of the sky to the other and back within minutes.

I have had a lot of paranormal/supernatural experience in my life, so I want you to know that these kinds of things are very, very important to me. I have never seen a UFO before, and I am absolutely without a doubt convinced that I have now.
