Full Description & Details
During much of my life, I have lived with this, Lights In The Heavens Thing. Not knowing where to turn to report it or to tell anyone because they would probably not believe me. The only ones I would tell about this, would be my closest fiends and family, but without much responds from them. I guess they would either think I was dreaming.or lying. But I assure you I am not.lying or dreamed it up.
I now see this site as a good way to report what I saw.
It was during my younger years, probably when I was 6 or 7 years old. I can only estimate around 1947 or 1948. During the spring or summer months. I am now 70 years old.
That was when me and my friend( now deceased) were sitting beside the road (at night around 10 o'clock), leaning against a fence, when he said, look at the stars, they are moving !
I then looked up and saw the stars were there. But it was not the stars that were moving. It was the bright lights( as big as the stars themselves) that were moving from star to star. Once the light got to a star, they would stay there and another one would do it from another star. It was like a criss- cross pattern movement.
I cannot estimate how far it Is from one star to another. I' ll leave it up to the scientists to do that. But it only took a few seconds for the lights to move from one star to another. Not over the entire sky, but in a s certain section of the sky.
We observed this for about 15 minutes. I was sure (at the time) that someone else might have seen this (with or without telescopes) and report what they saw that night, but I have never seen a report like that anywhere. I have seen and heard reports of lights in the sky, but not in the heavens like these. I don't think they had planes or balloons that would fly so high in the heavens in those years.
Anyway, that is my story before I pass away.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No, I don't think they can be explained.
