What I look for, in particular, are these rapidly moving lights that look like stars, but are not stars and are not planes and are not satellites. I call them flying stars.
I know they are not planes because planes have distinctive lights and do not fly that high.
I know they are not satellites because I use a satellite map and satellites are never in the area that I see these flying stars.
And I know they are not stars because, well, stars don’t really fly.
Unfortunately, I don’t see them all the time.
Some nights I might see one or other nights, a few. Many nights, none at all.
Sometimes they are really faint and other times they are quite bright.
Regardless, they fascinate me because I believe they are not of this world.
They move too fast and are too high up in the atmosphere.
If they are terrestrial-based then there are quite a few secrets being kept from us.
Their paths are never quite straight though they tend to go from east to west or north to south.
Sometimes they just stop… And then suddenly, start moving again.
I find them totally fascinating and practically break my neck watching them.
And I wonder what they really are…
