We are both aged above 40 years and neither of us has seen a UFO until last night. I invited my friend, Will, over for an evening spent in my yard with a fire and chat.
Where I live there is zero light nor noise pollution and last night was clear skies. We sat under the Milky Way in my front yard from 7pm until 10:30.
Around 9pm my friend asked "Is that a star"? I looked where he was looking and quickly locked on to what he saw. It was a bright white ball of light that was traveling near the horizon. We both saw it make up and down zig zagging maneuvers. There were no blinking lights that would be normal for a plane or helicopter. There was, also, no noise except for some frogs and crickets chirping.
After about 45 seconds it winked out or vanished.
Truly bizarre experience for both of us. We have no idea what we witnessed.
