Strange object seen on Vulcan Mountain in Northeastern Washington State 8/31/2002

I just returned home from a recent trip to Eastern Washington State, from an area which is located next to the Canadian border, near the town of Curlew, WA. Myself, and two other men were on top of Vulcan Mountain, it was after dark when we arrived. The night sky was so clear and beautiful, you could see what looked like every star in the sky. We had set up camp and was just getting settled in. We had been seeing several sattlites moving across the sky, when suddenly I told my two other buddies tolook at what looked like a sattlite in a extremely high orbit traveling at a high rate of speed. Suddenly, while we were all watching this object, it started dropping out of the sky, directly at us. I mean it fell,or traveled I should say, down to where it was less than a thousand feet directly over us, suddenly a very bright light was aimed at us and we started to yell that it was going to fall on us as this is what it looked like. It happened so fast that we were shocked. After the rays of light hit us it suddenly turn and disappeared out of sight, up into a higher orbit. Nothing I have ever heard of could travel so fast. I truly believe that this was a visitor from another place, as do also my other friends that witnessed this strange event. I am looking for others who might have seen anything like this to respond to this message board to share their experiences, as we know what we saw was real--Thanks ((name deleted))
