distant object flying in “impossible” patterns

Old info but I hope interesting. As boys my brother and I used to take star charts out and identify stars, constellations, hope for meteors etc. On one such night I noticed a “star” was moving in relation to other stars. It was a single white light and was star like in apparent size and brightness. As we watched it continued to move but remained in a very small section of the sky. It was making abrupt right angles, triangles, “yo-yo like movements, circles, ETC. It was moving at a speed that seemed “normal” but flying patterns that were highly irregular. Yes, it would have been possible for a helicopter to do what it was doing and helicopters existed at the time but I submit that a UFO would be more likely than a helicopter flying crazily at night in the early 1950’s over Oklahoma. There are no nearby military bases and little reason for a helicopter to mill around like a moth near a light.
With no reference it is difficult to know if it was large and farther away or smaller and nearer. I thought it was perhaps 3 or four miles at the time but it is a guess.
We watched it for perhaps 15 minutes and I regret I no longer recall how it ended. Whether it just winked out or faded or maybe Mom made us come in. I was ten years old then and am 69 now.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
