Hoover, AL

Shape: Light | Duration: 8 minutes

White light that appeared as comet but changed shape and slowed down.It was around 7:20 PM and the sun was starting to set, so it was still really bright outside. And there was this bright light that caught the corner of my eye that was close to the moon, and it started off looking like a comet. Then it began to curve downward and it was still going pretty fast, then it started to slow down and as it was still going down it started to change shape to look like a star. I thought this object was going to take the place of a star because of the slow pace it was going, but it was still moving and started going down in a slight zig zag motion. Then it changed direction again and started to go off into the distance. And I know it wasn't a plane because what plane needs its lights on while the sun is still up? It would appear black or gray, not a glowing white orb that was at an altitude that seemed too high for a plane.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
