None of these lights were planes, stars, or shooting stars...
Casper, Wyoming - 06-11-15
Shape: Light - Duration: 30 minutes
My children and I witnessed bright lights over Casper over the course of half an hour.
My children and I were headed to take my husband medicine at work at the hospital when we saw a bright light in the sky near a star; much brighter than a star.
At first we thought it was an airplane, but couldn't see the normal red or green lights we are used to seeing on the wings. We watched it move in a northern direction from where we were on South McKinley all the way to the hospital on east 2nd street.
My husband met us outside to get his meds and we pointed it out to him and asked if he thought it was a plane, but he was uncertain.
The kids and I decided to investigate and drive out to Natrona County Airport to see if we could see it coming in to land, but the light never came anywhere near the airport. While on our way there were also saw another light between the star, where we originally saw the other light, and the light we'd been following.
We watched the second light move rapidly north and disappear in the blink of an eye.
On our way back to town from the airport heading east, we spotted yet a third light, much lower than the first two, over the downtown vicinity. It darted in a southerly direction very quickly (and had a trail behind it) and then disappeared.
It was really low; not much higher than the buildings. None of these lights were planes, stars, or shooting stars. They all looked the same. Fascinating.
