Stargazing: Don't look now…a UFO is coming tonight
If you see something moving in the sky, and you don't know what it is, you may call it an Unidentified Flying Object, or UFO. Not every object in the sky will be recognized by every person, so naturally people should see lots of UFOs. …
I saw a light emerge from the clouds that was stationary it lasted about 5 seconds. It was about 45 degrees above the horizon, 25 degrees above my treeline, SE direction.
It was about 10:45pm pacific time. I was sitting in my back yard star gazing in Rock Island, WA. The light faded in almost the exact appearance of a star except for it got brighter and brighter till it was flaring out about half of the size that the moon is. Looked exactly like landing gear light on an airplane, but only one light off white, with no wing lights or flashing.
After it faded out in about 5 seconds, I realized there were no clouds there, that I was almost sure from which it had appeared. No sound. The eerie thing is that it was perfectly stationary like a star, looked like an airplane, no sound and linear fade in and out. Meteor? What are the odds that it could come perfectly straight at me with no color variation, and for five seconds? I wanted to think supernova at first, but very man made looking color like halogen head light. No size just point like emission of light that kept growing. No ability to detect approximate elevation either.
The Yakima firing range is about 30 miles SW of here, so I was also thinking maybe some kind of military lighting beam or some energy project. It was substantial enough to put me into shock, and make me want to log on the internet and see if anyone else saw it. Or from where they might have seen it, so we could triangulate a potential altitude. I’m mostly just confounded since I do a lot of star gazing and have never seen anything quite like it.

My girlfriend and I had decided that after dinner we would like to go stargazing in a pretty remote area near Lake Isabella. After arriving and laying on the car my girlfriend said she had never been stargazing before. After giving her a brief description of the way I usually go about it, she immediatly noticed that the star she was focused on was moving. I asked her to point it out to me with the flashlight. After she did I was amazed, the object was moving in a swimming like motion around a cluster of stars. It stopped and started, all throughout the time we watched it. It would make a circle and then stop, or make a swimming motion, then move to the left or right in a straight line. After about 30 minutes or so of watching it I came to the conclusion that it was in fact something I had never seen before while stargazing and began flashing it with a flashlight (which I believed would have no effect whatsoever). Thats when things got a little more intense. We were still focused on the object in the sky, when a huge blue flash lit up the tree tops to our left, which shocked us. We were not 100% sure if the 2 events were related, but seemed enough like they were that we left right afterward. Once we left neither of us could believe what we witnessed and were still a little freaked out from the flash of light. We got home safe with no further events.

The object was travelling roughly sweet and flashed east. Definitely in upper atmosphere if not low earth orbit. I am 43 years of age.

M15 is one of the easiest Globular Clusters to find, and ranks 12th brightest of 158 associated with the Milky Way. Its unusually dense core suggests the presence of a black hole, shrouded by the hundreds of thousands of ancient stars, that appear through our binoculars as tiny patch of light.
