I had a intense urgencey to hurry up and gather my video recorder and go outside, I knew it was coming. After I set up the tripod and connected the camera there it was, moving steadly in my direction N, bright and glowing, coming out of the SW at 7:43 PM, clear skys. I tried to flash it with my flashlight to see what it might do, but also tring to keep it in frame and focus-very hard to do. It came a little closer then drifted back off to the SE and out of sight blocked by the trees. I think it knew I was tring to film it, usually it comes right over head (a lot closer). Im kinda disapointed I couldnt get a close up view to what the craft really looks like, I tried to focus in on it and it would just get disorted so I had to zoom back out on it.I think it might be a little camera shy.
