STRANGE SIGHT IN THE SKY.

I WENT TO SMOKE A CIGARETT OUTSIDE MY HOME. IT WAS APROXIMENTLY 4:30 IN THE MORNING AND I COULDN'T SLEEP. THERE IS VERY MUCH FOREST AND FARMS NEAR MY HOME. I LOOKED AT THE STARS. THE BRIGHTEST ONE WAS A GOLD COLOR. SO I ASSUMED IT WAS A PLANE. BUT' IT DIDN'T MOVE. IT APPEARED SO CLOSE AND THE SHAPE WASN'T NORMALLY WHAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT WAS HARD TO LOOK AT IT AND CONCENTRATE. BECAUSE AROUND IT SEEMED TO BE A SORT OF RAY OF LIGHT. IT GOT ME SCARED SO I SMOKED HALF OF MY CIGARETTE. THEN I WENT INSIDE.THE GOLD COLOR WAS VERY BRIGHT AND UNUSAL.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the report is not inconsistent with a sighting of a celestial body, either a star or planet. In this case, we wonder whether the witness might have been looking at Mars, which is quite prominent, at present. Witness provides no contact information. PD))
