A Twenty Minute Experience @ 2:13 AM in Mandeville Louisiana

This event happened just as I looked out my window... I was looking closely at Mars and there for a few seconds there was an object I thought was na airplane light. On further observation this object suddenly became clearer and there it was a "Triangular Shaped " with three red lights each on the tips of the pointed angles...I had my binoculars handy and looked closer. The object had a n unusual metal type appearance and it seemed to hover for awhile... Unfortunately I did not have a video camera because the lights and shape were very distinctive and would have produced a really visible image... I felt a chill up my spine and eary feeling fell over me... Almost doomlike yet excited that this maybe a UFO... Varied thoughts passed through my mind which elevated fear I have never felt before... I felt like something was reading my mind and then an image crossed in it and I sensed and could see through my mind's eye an image and also a sound of something near...I froze for a moment or two and then a sudden air of heat came over me and then the object in the sky was gone...I had pinched myself and had gotten myself a glass of water to get back to the evening's reality... I was stunned yet an overwhelming calm came over me and I felt safe...This is the first account I have ever experienced and have some heavy thoughts that seem difficult to dispell...Today, I sat quietly and pondered whether or not I should tell anyone. I feel a release and also relieved that this site exist. so that my experience can be told...I am not sure that what I saw was a UFO, but for now it seems so...
