looked like a flickering planet but a little larger than the largest thats visable to the naked eye.when i went outside in my backyard to smoke a cigar, i saw what looked like a planet, i check them out every night , i go to my garage and turn on KSRO radio station 13.50 to listen to the Jeff Rense show so i am somewhat familar with sightings etc. i have heard jeff talk about sending info to this research co up in seatle washinton, but i did not think that i would need to or ever see anything. anyway i saw what looked to be a planet which looked like a large bright star kind of flickering just over my roof line like i have seen before, but after i went back outside i went straight up and out of sight from what looked like it was sitting still. it dissapeard in just a in about a 1/2 second. i did not tell my wife because she does not take a interest as i do. i am a construction foreman an am recovering from back sugery so i have time on my hands and have been trying to find out as much as i can about ufo,s and ebe,s from classified documents from the aif force and all agencys i can think of but not having much luck.i have found many sites on the computer but not much info other than speculation. frustrated ((name deleted)).
