It was late (3:00 am) my friend and I were out in the desert when we saw a bright light in the sky, the light lit up the area where we were standing almost as if a huge camera were to take a picture and that is how you would imagine the flash to be like. immediatly after the huge, bright flash of light we looked up to see if there was a police helocopter with his spot light on us, but there was complete silencen and darkness and our eyes were felt blinded for a moment like when you look directly into a cameras flash . about 20-30 seconds later as we were looking up to the sky to our amazement we saw a triangular shaped light it looked like a purple neon ligh aprox. 10ftx10x10ft it was directlt above us (but high as a low plane would appear) then it darted accross the sky super, super fast and stopped suddenly just before some mountains that were about a mile away it hovered for3-5 seconds and it dissapeared it did not seem to fly away it appeared to simply dissapear. We left the area both freaked out we never thought about telling anyone for the fear of sounded crazy, until a friend of ours told us about this web site, I have never seen any thing like that in my life and I hope I never do again!
