My family and I were sitting on our front porch, faceing west about 10:30 p.m. As dusk was turning to night we abserved a bright light rise up over Mingus Mt. As it rose higher that light became so bright it illuminated the whole valley. And it just hovered there and didn't move at all. All we seemed to be able to do was watch, suddenly the light dimmed and the disk suddenly shot off to the north and two other lights joined the ffirst and all three shot off and disappeared. After that episode my sisters and I spent many nights in our sleeping bags watching for ufos. These were not weather balloones as we were told by the military and police. We have seen to many unexplainable things to fall for that lie. This was just one of many encounters we've had. And I truly believe these vessels were not of this world, at this time we did not have the technology.
