Description: I just got up to walk out and have a smoke. I looked up in the sky. I saw a jet moving at a high rate of speed. Under a star (a bright star) just sitting there I noticed the brightest star next to the moon. Also I looked back at the other star after the jet moved away. At that point the light (star) started to move also. I thought that was weird. First it started to go north then it stopped and started to go south. Then it was under the bright star near the moon. I took out my camera and tried to take a picture, but when I took picture it came out squiggly. Then all of a sudden this thing took off it appeared to go up at a very high rate of speed. This is something that I have never seen in my life. Then it was gone.

Comments: The witness clearly felt that he saw something unusual. The two photos taken don't really show anything compelling. The photos either a captured a light source moving or the streaking was due to movement of the camera. The exposure was much longer in the first photo above. Apparently that is the reason for the light background. The photos were taken with a HP Photosmart R725 Digital camera (maximum resolution of 6.1 mega-pixels).
