If I held my fingers out, I would probably have to space my fingers about 2 - 3 inches apart to cover the UFO. Not sure of the actual size.

I would estimate the object was between 2 and 5 thousand feet above the earth.

Full Description & Details
On the night of December 26, 2005, I was out in my yard in rural Northeastern Texas viewing stars through my telescope. After looking about without the aid of a telescope to see what stars/astronomical phenomena to look for, I saw a very dim object which seemed to hover for a few moments. The object seemed to be hovering no more than between 2 - 5 thousand feet above the earth. It then moved slightly southeastward, then made a sharp turn to the southwest before moving away toward the south. The object then seemed to vanish. This object was triangular in shape with dim lights at each point. The object seemed to move about in an "S" shape rather rapidly. The object was surprisingly dim. Had I not allowed my eyes to adjust to the darkness (for viewing stars through my telescope), I might not have seen it. The whole experience seemed to last for no more than 15 to 20 seconds. My home is not near any airport or military base.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I do no believe this object can be explained conventionally. This object moved about in a most unusual manner -- almost intelligently

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was a bit skeptical about UFOs before the sighting, however, now that I have seen this object, I am much more convinced that UFOs do exist.
