Assuming it wasn't a UFO, what was the weird light shining in my window last night?
I recently moved into a new apartment, and my bedroom is oddly shaped. Here's a diagram.
Last night, sometime around 3 or 4am, I woke up and noticed that light was shining in the window and hitting the angled over my bed (indicated by the green area in the diagram). (The light was yellowish, not green, but green shows up better in a picture.) I was watching the wall, not the window.
As I was looking at this light on my wall, it moved down and to the right, still roughly the same size and shape of the window, until it disappeared. This all took about 7 seconds. I went to look out my window to see what it might have been, but I didn't see anything.
Light shining in through a window isn't very exciting. This looked exactly like what it looks like when car headlights shine in through a window, then the car turns, and the light moves, until the car is too far away for light to shine in. No big deal.
But I'm on the third floor. The building I'm in is a whole storey taller than any two houses around me in any direction. When you look out of my (angled) window, you can only baaaarely see the top of a chimney on a house two houses down. So it wasn't a car, and it wasn't the light from anyone's house.
It also wasn't a plane. I live about 10 miles from the airport, and can see every arriving flight that goes by (they all take the same approach), and they're way too far away for plane light to be a factor. Departing flights take off in the other direction.
So: any ideas what this was? Since I can't think of any rational explanation, I'm really curious for yours. My working theory right now is that Ron Weasely stole his dad's car again, but somehow that seems unlikely.
