Full Description & Details
I was ten years old when this incident happened. It was the fourth of July and it was late in the evening about 11PM-12AM. I was sitting in the back yard with my family watching the stars and the late fire works that night. I looked up and I noticed four stars moving across the sky in a perfect square formation. They were very high very possibility in space and very far apart about 200 hundred feet from my perspective. They moved back and forth first from left to right or west to east stopped in a second. Then they moved east to west and then back to west to east. All the times they moved they stopped in a second. While they moved I could tell that they were moving against the back ground stars. The final east to west movement they picked up great speed and just disappeared from sight. I did not hear any noise nor did I see the lights change color in any way.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I do not think anything I knew as a child about airplanes, rockets, the space shuttle, helicopters and space satilites or now can expliain what I saw. I know of nothing man made that can stay in such perfect fromation over such a long distance so far apart and so far up in the air or in possible orbit.
I am 32 years old. I have had an intrest in aerospace, airplanes and helicopters since I was a child. I built models and have owned many books on the subject. I know what metrorites and other space stuff is meant to do. It goes in one direction and will either fall out of the sky or stay there. I also know that airplanes could not stop so quickly or stay in the air without moving forward. I may not be an aerospace engineer but I do know how airplanes work.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I really did not know anything about UFOs before or had read any books. After that I did not read many books till I was fifteen years old. I did read everything I could about aerospace and airplanes and helicopters. I have read some books by Witley Striber and a few others but I do not make a habit of reading books on the subject of UFOs.
I am sending in this report for the one reason only. I would like to know had anyone else seen what me and my family saw that night.
