Last night I walked out into the back yard with the dogs while they had their last potty opportunity of the evening, and as I was gazing at the three planets I can see in the sky from our yard, I heard an odd sound.
It was coming from the sky directly overhead. I could not identify this sound as I had never heard it before. I looked and looked and didn’t see a thing, but the sound was quite clear.
I began to question my sanity.
(Don’t we all?)
I kept looking, because the sound was recurring on and off.
Finally, I saw… a whitish line in the night sky, moving south.
What the HECK is THAT?
I was picturing myself on Ancient Aliens, pointing at the sky saying, “It was right up there. It was making this creepy sound I have never heard. It was weird!”
Then I heard a completely new sound from a different area of the sky, and saw another whitish line.
Well, you can imagine my relief when I realized I was looking at and hearing two Barn Owls calling to each other.
If you go here, you can hear what I heard…
Listen under ‘Common Barn Owl’ and chose these two: twittering and typical call.
Who knew Barn Owls were on Twitter?
(YOU are the twit.)
I think I have stipulated this fact on more than one occasion. Give it a rest. At least I avoided making a fool of myself on UFO Hunters.
But just barely.
Here’s the identified flying object….
Wish I could have seen them this close. . .
