JJ:Right. It's when it was hovering that you could actually see all these (gestures), all these pretty lights and everything you know. That's when it was staying in one place. But when it actually went to move you might see a little white, and then nothing—blank you know, and then here it is over here (gestures to upper right), then here it is over here (gestures to upper left) I mean...
TT:That's the first time I heard anybody describe it that way.
TT:Now I understand better the confusion.
JJ:Right. That's why it was so hard to get this 52 to you know—where is he now? I mean, good question! (laughs)
TT:That's like an otter in the lake...
JJ:Yeah! Right.
TT:...when they go under the water, you never know where they're coming up next.

TT:Yeah, right. Here's you again [reading] "When the plane had started to travel to the base and after it was out of sight, we had also started back to N-1. Our attention was again caught when it appeared approximately 5 miles due west where it remained until it disappeared about 15 minutes later." So you're driving north and this thing would be to your west and you watched it, apparently you watched it, it was "...5 miles due west where it remained until it disappeared..." 15 minutes afterward, so, that would have been almost your whole drive up...
TT:That thing was sitting on the horizon at what you thought to be 5 miles away. So that's you, oh "It had appeared as before, starting bright orange-red to white and finally green. The
