Sighting Details

WHILE THE RUSSIAN SPUTNIK 1 WAS OVER MONTGOMERY COUNTY MARYLAND MY PARENTS AND MYSELF WERE OBSERVING IT - IT WAS GOING BLINK BLINK BLINK I HAD TO GO INSIDE FOR A FEW MINUTES AND MY PARENTS STAYED OUTSIDE WATCHING THE SPUTNIK. WHEN I CAME BACK OUTSIDE MY PARENTS WERE VERY EXCITED AS THEY TOLD ME A LIGHT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE AND PLACED ITSELF RIGHT NEXT TO THE SPUTNIK AND FOLLOWED ALONG FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN FLEW BACK OUT INTO OUTER SPACE.AS I MISSED SEEING IT MY SELF I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED. MY PARENTS WERE AMAZED. FROM WHAT I HEARD THE NEXT FEW DAYS WAS THAT THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY POLICE PHONE LINES WERE SO PACKED THEY FAILED AS EVERYONE THAT WAS WATCHING THE SPUTNIK SAW THE OBJECT AND CALLED THE POLICE.
