I was in my neighbors back yard. Walking towards my house, I am always star gazing, I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. I stopped and observed the object make small circles. Then it moved west, stopped, moved north all in straight lines. I phoned my neighbor and told him to come outside to look. He brought out a powerful flashlight. I told him which light it was that was making moves. He shined the light on the object and asked if that was the one I was reffering to. I said yes, to which the object dimmed out and appeared in another area of the sky. He spotted it this time approxamately 3-5 inches from where it “dimmed” out. It moved west in a straight line then dimmed out again. We watched for a couple of more minutes but the object did not re-appear. Clouds were moving into the area, so he went inside. I kept waiting for the sky to re-open but it was too far and few between openings. I’ve been waiting for a long time to see a UFO, it was AWESOME!
