The #1 Paranormal News Site
I saw a post on this sub a short while ago that got me thinking of my own personal experience. This happened to me when I was a kid but has remained a vivid memory for my entire life. I replied to the post from earlier with my story but after thinking about it it seems like a better idea to just make a post. As I feel like I was able to convey everything quite accurately in the reply from earlier I am going to repeat a lot of it here. I apologize for this but I don't believe I could retell it any better.
When I was a child (around 25 years ago, probably 1991 or 92) I was in a friends backyard after dark one night while we were setting up a haunted house for halloween. I have always been one to look up at the stars frequently and this night was no different in that regard. However, on this particular night something else was going on that I had never seen before and have not seen since. There were two "stars" moving back and forth towards each other. They never hit each other, only came close, and when they got a good distance away they would reverse direction and do it again. They were most definitely outside of the atmosphere. They seemed to be moving slowly (but it could have been very fast depending on the distance) and their movements were not synchronized. Let me be clear. They did not make a turn to head back in the other direction. They just instantly went from moving one direction to moving in the opposite direction. And they looked just like stars, I'll never forget it. In my personal opinion there is no way these could have been satellites. As I understand it our satellites are always in an orbit around the planet. These most certainly were not. Anyway this went on for quite some time but I was too young to realize the significance of what I had seen. I only realized just how odd it was when I saw a show on tv a few years later that was discussing what type of movement man made vehicles and aircraft are and are not capable of. Whatever these were I have always believed they were performing maneuvers that no man made craft has ever been capable of (that we know of at least). I have hardly ever spoken of this after the reaction I got from trying to explain it as a kid. I was hoping to at least hear from someone with a similar experience or even a possible explanation.
