I am not sure how Mr. Filer made this mistake, but the UFO
report is incorrect.

Occurred : 2/27/2004 05:30 (Entered as : 02/27/1904 5:30)
Reported: 2/27/2004 7:45:54 AM 07:45
Posted: 3/2/2004
Location: Keaau, HI
Shape: Light
Duration:several minutes Looked like a distant moving star, kept going.

I had gotten up, had my coffee and came outside. It was dark,
warm and breezy and a starfilled sky. I pulled out a chair and
sat down to just enjoy the beauty of the early morning. As I
gazed up at the stars, I noticed one was moving and it just kept
going, sort of west to east I'd say. It was like a medium size
star, but it just kept moving and I had to get up and go to
other side of house to follow it. Was it a satellite? There was
no sound, and it seemed to be very high up in the atmosphere.
Although it seemed to slow down a times, I can't really really
say for sure. The path seemed to be fairly straight. Then I lost
sight of it in the east."

Anyway, analysis shows this to be likely a satellite.

The following satellite is the only one that is visible at +-30
min from 5:30 am which is going anywhere near West to East at
that spot and day.
