A parent and their son witnessed a light in the sky hovering and darting around the sky for over a half hour. We really wish we could have seen that. It's not every day a UFO hangs out in one part of the sky for so long!
Could this have been a drone? Or a satellite - the ISS was over the Abilene area that night, but this is not really the behavior of a satellite. Let us know if you saw anything similar in the Abilene sky on April 8th!
Here's the report, which was submitted to our site:
My son called me to look out the window where he had been watching a light in the sky for 10 minutes. He had seen it move sharply & abruptly to the left. I went outside and watched from the front porch & the back porch for approximately 20 min. It hovered & the intensity of the light wavered. It moved randomly. I went from front porch to back porch & gauged it's position from objects near the porch. I finally went inside for a few minutes & when I went back out at 12:38 a.m. it had disappeared.
