Twinkling multicolor "star" that moved across the sky after being idle for over 10 minutes or moreOn the evening December 25 ((sic-- around 1030 I was putting my grandughter to sleep, as I looked out the window I saw a bright star that twinkled. i thought that the sghtings we saw a few weeks ago being the 2 planets near the moon had moved, so i decided to go and take a closer look, I watched it while i put her to sleep which was about 15 minutes. I then thought it was a glare on the mirror since it didnt move or a street post, but the posts in our area Ft Washington MD are not that high. I went and laid her down and got my binoculars. I had kept them out from my little gil looking at the planets a few weeks ago. It was still twinkling and appeared to have alternating patterns of colors and then nothing. This was too weird so I opened the window to seee better but closed it it was cold out. AI kept looking at it from the binoculars in amazment, it did not move, then finally it began to move crazy like up then down then began to move across, i was like oh ((word deleted)) what the hell. it then began to move across the sky, like cloud view or helicopter, inbetween, still had the color alternating thing, and a whoosing sound like a jet but deeper in sound, I appeared to have a dk grey metallic like stucture with like some red lights amongst the bottom. As fast as it was and that crazy noise was unbelievable. i stood in the window kept sayign Oh my God and then started crying. I didnt know what to do or say, i then got my son up who always has stated that he sees some different planes and told him about it. he said he had just heard the noise but did not know what it was. Please know that i am just a normal person, i do not drink or do drugs so this was not some imagination. I have been googleing all morn to see if anyone else saw this. If so pls contact me. I do believe in "UFO" as they call them, but never did i expect to see one in my lifetime. I am just in amazment and the image keeps playing in my head and the sound.......((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone in order to clarify a few points about what she writes above, and she seemed to us to be serious-minded and credible.
