... it reminds me of Orion's belt stars, except one is missing
Temple City/Arcadia, California - 10-08-14
Shape: Circle - Duration: 10-20 seconds
Northeastern evening sky, two objects appear and disappear like the Phoenix lights; all in about 10 to 20 seconds.
On Wednesday evening, I decided to water my lawn in the backyard. I sat down in my chair, which faces east, as my two labs were tracking the stream of water from the water hose in right to left direction.
I gaze up into the heavens and directly to my left, in a northeast direction, I noticed two bright stars, at the moment that is what I thought I was witnessing.
Distances are hard to estimate, but if I were to guess, I would have used my thumb to equate about an inch of separation between each.
Immediately I thought, "Damn, it reminds me of Orion's belt stars, except one is missing."
As I reached for my cell phone to record what I was witnessing, the two objects began to disappear like the Phoenix Lights incident.
I was shocked and called my brother to describe my experience.
It's now two in the morning and I am heading outside again with quality and strong binoculars made by Steiner.
Thank for this opportunity, this is something I will cherish and has made me more vigilant.
