Full Description & Details
I heard my father pull into the front driveway at our house. I went outside to see what was going on because it sounded like he had hit something with the car. I opened the door to see my Dad standing outside looking up at the night sky. He asked me if I could see the orange light that was moving in odd patterns through the night sky. I told him that I could and asked him what he thought it was, he didn't know. We watched it for 10-15 minutes when I decided to grab my rifle for a better look. All I could see was a bright orange light. My father grabbed a spotting scope and said that the light appeared cigar shaped.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
it wasn't a planet, my dad used to teach astronomy at the college. I don't believe it was man made, it was silent and moved very slowly and was very bright. Much brighter than the lights on an aircraft
I am a veteran from the US army also I attend a private christian university
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I just know that sometimes people see things that they cannot explain. This isn't the first time that I have seen something nor do I hope it's my last.
