UFO details report: I was out back of my house having a smoke. When I first looked at the sky I couldn't believe how many stars I could see. The brightest which I have heard is Venus caught my eye, but off to the right a bit was another light that looked like a star. I continued to look at this object and Realized that there were probably around seven or eight other lights around it. These tiny lights were moving around and the lights would fade out and then come back on. Sometimes there were three that would line up stationary. The one that I noticed first seemed to stay still in the middle of all the others. I wanted my wife to see what I was seeing so that when I she would not tell me I was crazy if I waited to tell her in the morning. I went and woke her out of her sleep, which she wasn't happy about, but she did follow me outside to see it. When she looked up at what I was pointing at she said that she could see them but she didn't know what to say about them. She said they are just stars, to which I replied - stars that move and disappear and reappear. She said I don't know what to say and went back inside. I stood for about a half an hour looking at these lights before I had to stop as my neck was getting sore. It was 11:30 till midnight when I seen this. I tried to use my camera to video tape this but I could not get them into focus.
