    Let's share stories of seeing odd things in the night sky.

    I don't have a great story, but I always thought this was strange.

    When I was 9 or so, I was at a Cub Scout event. I couldn't tell you what we were thinking, but we are standing in front of the school and I look at my buddy and say, "I bet that star is a ship so I'm going to signal it."

    I just thought this one star stuck out because it was bright.

    So I point my flash light at it and turn it on. Soon as I click the button, the star jumps to the side a noticeable amount suddenly.

    I look at the other kid and he is already jaw dropping and yelling "whoa" because near as we can tell, the click moved the star.

    In my old age, I had decided that there must have been a sudden change in the temperature of an air current that blew over, distorting the light. That was my best guess.

    Your stories? Ever see anything odd?

    UFO, no. I would love to see them though.

    I have seen weird flashing lands that hovers over the sky before, but after checking the the net, I found out it's some big ass kite flying competition in my town. The organiser had 2 kites with lights on them.

    When I was 16 I was going home from thanksgiving dinner. It was around midnight and I noticed something up in the sky. At first I thought is was a reflection of the lights on the radio, or the clock or something, but then I noticed the lights on the radio weren't on. It was a large yellow orb just hovering there maybe 200-300 feet off the ground. There was no sound coming from it at all. Then it suddenly shot straight up into the sky like a bullet.

    May have been ball lightning which would be just as cool as seeing a UFO, but either way it was unidentified and flying.
