A few weeks ago, I was looking up at the stars, at night obviously, and I noticed that one of the stars was moving. At first I thought it was just a plane, but then I realized that I had seen a plane a few moments before, and this was NOT a plane. It was the same size and brightness of a regular, nothing special sort of star, and it wasn't blinking the way planes do at night. But it was moving across the sky at a pretty good pace. It disappeared soon after I saw it. I saw the same thing again a few nights ago. There were 2 other planes in the sky this time, and when I saw the moving star, I looked over to compare it to the actual planes. But when I looked again, the moving star was gone. Both times, it was too small and too high up to be a plane, and it was just a single light that wasn't flashing. At night, planes will appear as multiple lights, usually red, white and blue, and one or two of them will be blinking. This one wasn't any of that.
I've seen the same thing twice in the last month, and I have never seen it before.
Have any of you seen this? Or can any of you explain what it might be?

And I forgot to add, as I stated in the title, they were NOT shooting stars. They were visible for nearly a minute each.
I've seen such things several times myself. If it goes in a straight line, it could be a passing satellite in orbit (yes, they are visible to the naked eye if you look closely). Satellites can also seem to suddenly disappear (or appear) as it passes thru Earth's shadow and the sunlight. So none of that would be paranormal, or alien.
However, if you see them take sudden turns, they are not satellites. And no, they are certainly not planes, either. They are UFOs certainly. Alien spaceships? Perhaps :)
After looking at your profile I see you are in NYC so I think the city lights would be too bright to make out orbiting satelites. That being said, you are still capable of seeing the much larger International Space Station zip by in orbit. Normally it is much brighter than a star, but in an urban area it will appear much dimmer -- like a normal star. I love going outside in the evenings and spotting the ISS - especially when the shuttle is docked to it (it becomes even more bright). If you get a chance, check out NASA's ISS/Satellite tracking website: http://spaceflight1.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/cities/skywatch.cgi...

I've seen the UFOs, too. As I previously mentioned, these appear just about the same until you see their flight paths deviate in ways no conventional air/space craft can do.

Well, I live in sort of the suburban part of NYC, in Queens. The lights are a little dimmer here, but nowhere near what it's like in the more rural areas. I can still only see the brightest constellations, like Orion and the Big Dipper, plus a few dimmer stars dotted here and there. I hadn't considered that it could be a satellite, and I think that makes sense. I'll try to keep an eye out for one from now on, see if I can spot them predictably.
I've bookmarked that website; thank you for passing it along. The next sighting here is on Tuesday, at 4:21 AM. I still haven't decided if I'm going to keep myself up, or just wake up early, but I'll let you know lol.

Saw the satellite last night! It came right on schedule, 4:21 AM from the southwest toward the east. It was exactly what I saw the other two times, but I don't think it was the ISS before. The other two were on the complete other side of the sky and way too early, even with the changing times. But, I saw the ISS and it was awesome. ^_^

The Moving stars are how I see ufo's most of the time. One night Last month or so, there was a bright large one above my house that slowly got brighter and higher in the sky and then dimmed and lowered and moved back. Also that night one moved in an upward diagonal ark quickly to the mountains. Then another one moved from the mountains crisscrossing the flight path of the other one. And one moved along the tree line on the mountains. They will move up, down, and foward to back within a few minutes. There was a reddish one in the sky last night that got suddenly bright and temporarilly my vision went hazy darkish and then I saw it pull away. And there were more last night flirting with the tree line. I'll be turning around looking all over the sky at them and sometimes I'll suddenly notice them in a triangle formation that wasn't there a few minutes ago. This all started several years ago when a very bright "star" began to appear sometimes above the mountains in front of my house for several hours into the daylight hours of the morning. I just looked at the times that the space station and satallites are visible above my town and the viewing times were all 1-4 minutes long at 3 something in the morning generally. There are plenty of the stars that I see for way longer than four minutes that DO NOT move in a strait line and the viewing normally occurs between eight o'clock and eleven. Nevertheless, people are constantly trying to convince me that they are the space station or satalites despite the fact that the timing, movements, and behavior do not coralate with that theory.
