Location: Orange, VT

Duration:15 minutes
Woman was driving east from Barre, VT, and saw "a cluster" of very bright lights apparently hovering to the east of her position eastbound on the highway out of Barre. The closer to her property she got, the more alarmed she became that the objects were near, or above, her property.

Just at the moment she pulled off the highway to go up her driveway, she witnessed an immense flash, that illuminated the countryside with white light. At the same instant as the flash, she saw a streak of light shoot across the sky. It was not clear to her whether the streak was from an object ascending from ground level, or whether it had come over the horizon, from behind the hill on which her farm is located.

She immediately drove down the road, in some state of alarm, to talk to her neighbor. The neighbor had seen the flash, and the both of them stood outside and looked at "red and blue flashing" lights in several points of the sky. (Note: Were those lights twinkling stars??)
