Duration:1 minute
Sighted an orangish/yellow glowing circular light that appeared to hover ,then back up and slowly descend into the woods.

At 10:25pm, 1/4/04 I looked out my window as I always do before bed and saw a very unusual orangish/yellow bright glowing light just above the trees in my backyard. It was a cloudy, rainy night so I knew it was not an aircraft, especially at that level. I heard no sound. The light appeared to back up a little bit then it began to slowly descend at a downward angle towards the ground into the woods behind my house. I could tell it was behind the trees as I saw the branches and trunks in front as it descended very slowly. It's normally pitch black here at night so I know it was not a reflection from a streetlight or car. And there are no neighbors or airports closeby. I never believed in UFOs....until now. I see no other logical explanation for this!
