|To start I believe that it's very close minded, naive and arrogant for any person to think that Earth is or could be the only planet in The Milky Way, let alone the entire Universe to inhabit intelligent life, knowing that there are millions upon millions of stars in the countless galaxies, with even more planets orbiting them...
That being said, It was around 2:30 am, the skies were clear at the time. I was looking upwardly West/Northwest at the "Big Dipper" as I do every night.
Out of nowhere, what appeared to be one of the many stars in the sky suddenly and silently got extremely bright, brighter than anything in the night sky, then dimmed very quickly until it dissapeared.
Earlier in the evening, while again looking at the Big Dipper (towards the east), I saw what looked like a star suddenly start moving to the west then abruptly change direction to the south. It appeared to be moving extremely fast until I could no longer see it.
I don't think these two separate sightings in the same night, around the same constellation, seemed like they were coincidental.
This marks the third time I've seen something unexplained and unidentified. The first time was witnessed by my wife, kids and myself, was more eventful and lasted much longer but that's another story.
Keep looking up!
