As I was taking out the garbage (and yes, this happens very early in the morning) I noticed an unusually bright light in the western sky changing colors, and not moving. The rest of the stars weren't twinkling that much, and besides, I've never seen a twinkling star change colors quite like the light I was observing.
I went back inside, grabbed my old-school telescope (based off a design that Galileo used) but it proved to be a bit difficult to use. Bunny then came outside, wondering what I was looking at with the telescope. I showed her, and we both came back inside for some binoculars.
Well, that didn't resolve the issue any. It still looked like a point of light rapidly changing colors. A few minutes later, it winked out of existence.
Okay, so technically what I saw was an unidentified flying object—an object, in the sky, that was unidentifiable. Was it an actual alien spacecraft from the Zeta Reticuli system? No, I doubt it; everybody knows it's the Reptilians from the Draco constellation that rule us here).
Okay, seriously, it was probably an airplane, headed due west (thus it didn't appear to be moving relative to our position at Chez Boca) that we saw.
