I was outside on my driveway star-gazing as I do every night on my nightly routine, regular hourly basis directly above Newark, Delaware at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Saturday (before Easter Sunday) April 10, 2009. I have no clue to what my longitude, latitude etc. is. It was an exceptionally clear night out and I noticed what I thought were two stars moving very, very slowly across the night sky. The two stars were, I think the term is "equi-distant" to each other, never changing distance between each other during yhe event duration, moving so slowly it was just pure luck I noticed them. To confirm my observations, I found a fixed postion (referrence point) star right near the two stars moving, and determined I was not seeing things. I continued watching them travel in a semicircular path (southbound I think). I do know for sure it was in the same direction that almost all airtraffic travels southbound slightly west of DE.(the southbound traffic lane/corridor), towards the Big Dipper. I'm not sure if it might have been the Little Dipper. As the two "stars" approached the Dipper, they faded rapidly to the point of fully disappearing. At first I didn't know what to make of it/they. I was more in a state of shock. Stars don't move like that right in front of your eyes. After the event, All I could do was say out loud, "WHAT THE 'BLANK' WAS THAT". It was all I could get out of my mouth. I was besides myself. Honestly, not to sound melodramtic, but I was really in a kind of shock. I just said it over and over and over again out loud. To the best of my much-limited knowledge of orbital satelites, They couldn't have been satelites. For one thing, to the best of my knowledge, satelites orbit earth at an altitude of approximately 100 miles. I've seen satelites in the night sky (very infrequently) in the past. When I did see satelites at night, they were barely visable, almost impossible to follow because of the great "dimness ?" of them, or almost total lack of brightness. Anyhow, it's driving me crazy wondering what heck I saw. It's the most bizarre event I've seen as the "ultimate amateur astronomer". The wildest astronomical observation I've ever had was seeing the extremely turbulant atmosphere (phases ?) on Venus with my Meade telescope. The cluster of The Moon, Venus and Jupiter without a lelescope in the summer last. I think the newspaper said that plantary (close visable w/out a scope) proximity only occurred every 26,000 years or so. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE if you any idea what I saw, I beg, BEG you to Email me with any logical explaination. If I don't learn anything about it, it will bother me for a long time. Thanks so much. P.S. I'll never forget the "X-files" episode where the guy with "MUFON" baseball cap keeps getting abducted. I do believe. I'm no mathematician, but don't the scientific statistical probabilities all but prove there has to be some other life out there. I am passionate about the History Channel's show "The Universe". Until I started watching it, I thought there were many galaxies in the universe, I was stunned to learn that there were thousands, tens of thousands of them. Dark matter, the list of mind boggling discoveries is astounding. Sincerely, {pid}, Newark, DE.
