Second sighting...Madison, WI

This is my second submission. My first submission concerned a sighting witnessed by myself and several others. This particular sighting was all mine. I awoke just a minute or two before 3:00AM and went to use the facilities. As I was standing at the sink washing my hands, I noticed a light over Lake Mendota. Assuming it was a rescue helicopter bound for the University of WI Hospitals and Clinics ER, I looked away and finished washing up. When I looked again, I noticed the light had become somewhat brighter, and had not moved from the spot where it had been before. Now, having witnessed something like this before, AND having just seen the movie "Signs" several hours before, I wasn't willing to accept that this was anything unusual. As I watched the light, it began to change color and pulsate. I actually spoke out loud and said: "Oh, not THIS again!" half in jest, and half in earnest. As I said that, a small, red light poppped out and shot away from the larger light. Zip! And it was gone. At that point, I decided I'd seen enough. I spoke again, out loug, and said: "Look, you guys...either take me with you or go away!". Then I went back to bed. I have no explanations. I neither believe nor disbelieve in UFOs, aliens, or other odd phenomena. I'm only reporting what I've seen.
