I saw and reported a UFO on February 8, 2009 to MUFON. I reported the object broke apart and rejoined and was illuminated bright white like a star the entire time. After doing some research on the Internet, I think the craft I saw was either a flat top or Saturn - like UFO. Maybe a conical - hat or a dome shaped. According to what I have read on the Internet, these shapes can be hard to distinguish because a halo surronds the craft. I read the types I mentioned above have been reported as being illuminated bright white. I don't know about other sightings of them breaking apart and rejoining. These / the craft were silent. When the object broke apart it could be considerd chevron - like or airplane - like (both objects). Just wanted to add this to my description. I do not wnat my name on the Internet, but have no problem being contacted by a MUFON representative.
