|Myself and a friend witnessed a bright, white cirle of light about 20 yds across.It was about 500 feet above us.Everything went silent.
We were sitting on the hod of a car talking when my friend yelled Look at that. I turned and directly overhead was a bright white circle of light about 20 yards across. It had a faint red halo around it, outside of which the white light was dimmer. The object had a tail. The tail was a deep blue. Within it were diamond aquamarine shapes which fluctuated in color and position. There had been clouds in the sky prior to the event. The sky was completely clear. There was a noisy fountain behind us. Throughout the entire event we heard nothing. All sound stopped. The obeject slowly flew over us about 500 feet up in relation to tree tops. Both myself and the witness felt completely at peace. We both had an out of body experience. As it flew over the object stayed a perfect circle. It did not elipse. In total the event seemed to take about five minutes. Later we discovered it had been about 20 minutes. The object came to the tree line and disapeared. It never sped up. We rushed to look around the trees and saw nothing. It was gone instantaneously. It wasn't as if the light had blinked out. It was simply no longer there.We rushed inside to tell two other friends. They did not witness the light. They came outside with us and we all looked around. The four of us saw two planes flying by. There are no commercial flight paths over this area. We had all worked and lived in the area for at least two years and know the skies pretty well from being outdoors so much. The whole experience felt very peaceful during but afterward both my friend and I were terrified of seeing it alone. Myself and my friend are both 22 years old and college students.
