I went out to check on the animals at 10 PM. To the south, I observed what I first thought to be two stars low in the horizon (about 25 degrees above horizon).
It was a very clear night. I thought it was unusual to see two bright stars this low on the horizon so I watched them.
They pulsated in color from white, green, blue and red very quickly. Over the space of 15 minutes, I observed these objects make sudden changes in elevation while moving to the left and right.
They did not move in unison or any kind of pattern. I was a bit frightened when I saw one of them suddenly descend and bank sharply to the right and then to the left.
Then it just stayed stationary; quite remarkable. At this point I called to my step-son and he observed the objects while they were stationary, which wasnít very interesting to him.
Planes do not fly like this. The best I can describe the movement is that they were like a helicopters movement, but at a considerably higher speed. Itís difficult to judge the distance, but I estimate that it was at least one mile.
One of them appeared to be closer than the other. There were two other aircraft in the area, one during the event and one shortly after. There is a flight path below Mt. Monadnock to our south and Iím accustomed to seeing aircraft in the area.
I have to say that I was a bit anxious about what I saw. My heart was pounding.
