While traveling to town on Wednesday, February 4, 2009 at 20:45 local time, I observed a bright star-like object to the West, that would move slowly to the Northwest, back to the West, and then again to the Southwest. This object did not appear to be any aircraft, living near an airport most of my life, knowing what maneuvers an aircraft at night would make. This object make a straight line in the directions mentioned above, and would make stops and hold for a few seconds. To determine the movements weren't due to my car, I stopped for a couple minutes and observed. The object was still moving in the mentioned movements.I eventually lost sight of the object as I made it into the Scottsbluff city limits. When I travel home from work after midnight, I have seen similar lights like this in last several weeks, in different directions relative to the city of Scottsbluff.
