2-16-09 Pulsating star-like UFO in Eastern skyWhile driving south on Highway 75 between Hwy 370 and Capehart Rd, I happened to glance East and noticed an unusually bright "star" sitting at the 10 o'clock position, approx. 60-70 degrees off the horizon. I have been avid astronomy for over 25 years and know the brightest stars that occupy this area of the sky to be Sirius and Procyon. Iï¿½ï¿½ï¿½m also fairly certain it was too early for Regulus or Alphard to be that high above the horizon and they arenï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t as bright. I estimate it was magnitude 0 at the peak. The object caught my attention since I knew there shouldnï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t be another star that bright in the area. It was also changing brightness levels. I donï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t believe there were any clouds to cause the brightness fluctuations and the weather history for that date verifies this:History for Omaha Offutt, NEMonday, February 16, 20096:55 PM34.0 ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½F 22.5 ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½F 63%30.06 in 10.0 miles SSE8.1 mph - N/A ClearThe object also seemed to be in motion, but there were absolutely no navigation lights as found on normal aircraft. There were about 3-4 other jets in the sky that all had the normal strobes and lights on them. This object then seemed to vanish after about a minute, so I pretty much forgot about it as we were approaching our exit onto Capehart Rd. As we got to the exit ramp, I noticed it had returned. A commercial airliner was flying East in the same section of the sky and this object almost seemed to make a maneuver to avoid crossing paths with the jet, then settled into a steady glide in a West-Northwest direction. I had pulled onto the shoulder and asked my passenger Melissa to take a look and she saw the exact same thing. We were both very intrigued that it seemed under intelligent control, i.e. it didnï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t simply streak and fade, or have any sort of greenish trail like a meteor. After watching for another 30-40 seconds, the object made a banking maneuver north in a deliberate fashion and then slowly faded from view. A very impressive event for us!
