This very bright light getting brighter and not moving, I kept my eyes on it ,

This evening in the month of late September, in the back settlements of St. Agatha. I went on a tv service call. When I got to the residence, the gentlemen who had asked to have his television serviced had left with his family for some other place,which is what he told me the next day. When I started to leaved his place I noticed this bright light up the road from me. The more I stared at it the more came brighter. I stopped my 1976 Blazer in the road, and stopped the engine, got out and this thing was stationary with no noise whatsoever. I stayed and watched it for a good 2 to 3 minutes. I started my vehicle and started to move slowly while keeping my eyes on it, I was getting closer, I was not more than a quarter mile away, with this thing about 4 to 500 ft above ground. Then I switched my truck headlights on still having my eyes on it. And then all of a sudden this thing just completely vanished. I started looking for it and started to go down on the mountain road towards St. Agatha and looking to my right across a field, just about a couple miles from the first sighting I saw it again, and again being stationary, I turned my vehicle towards the field and once again without a trace that thing just vanished. That was the last I saw of it. Returning to work the next day, I told a female person working with us "if I told you what I saw last night you would tell me that I am crazy". And, she replied, I saw something strange also over the lake in St. Agatha last night. I do not know what to tell you, except that this was not a plane, for it to be in a fixed position for so long, and a helicopter would have made quite a bit of noise. This was very strange. This is the first time I am making this public.
