extremely bright light moving back&forth southwestern sky Syracuse,NY disappeared upwardAt approx. 06:20 on 02/09/09 I looked out a skylight window in my bedroom and noticed an unusually bright light in the sky. Not having my glasses on at the time, my first thought was that the moon was still out and was really bright. I put my glasses on and immediately recognized that it was not the moon, but very similar to a very bright star exceptionally far away. I then just layed there observing this "star". Upon observation of approx. a few minutes, it appeared that this "star" was in fact moving in a back and forth movement, to the right and then left. Being that I observed this through a rectangular skylight, I did have borders from which I could tell that this object was in fact moving. At that point I called to my wife and asked her to look at this. As she looked at it, I asked her if she could see it moving. She said that she could, and at that I said I thought it was a UFO. She responded "coming to get you"? She then went back to getting ready for work and I continued to watch, even having to reposition myself as this object had gotten to far to the right border of the skylight. After a few moments passed, I then noticed this light start to diminish. I assumed cloud coverage as it seemed to come in and out of light. It then disappeared. To me it appeared that this object went up as opposed to going any other direction. I continued to watch for approx. 15 minutes longer to make sure that cloud coverage wasn't hiding this light. My honest opinion is that this light was far to high in the sky to be a helicopter. I thought of trying to contact the Onondaga Co. Sheriffs' Dept. to inquire if they in fact had their chopper in what would have been the southwestern sky, but I didn't want to lose sight of it by going to the phone. Also, I took note that there was not on other star in the sky. I am sending this message out in the hopes that maybe someone could look into this, or that maybe another report was made about the same thing.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
