10/15/89 Bright fast moving light over valley west of Glennallen, Alaska

Extreme bright light moving East to South West across a wide valley. This was AFTER is was right behind my parked car. I was driving back to Anchorage, it was late, and I parked in a rest area about 25 miles from Glennallen, Alaska. No houses or buildings for several miles from the rest or pull off area.

A large tractor trailer truck, that had not been there when I pulled into the rest area, was there after the bright light (which gave off a loud humming noise) shot off toward the South West. I had gotton out of the car to try to figure out what was going on.

I was very suprised to see the truck. I didn't hear it come into the rest area, and it was parked 20-30 feet from the front of my Audi sedan. I ran to the driver's door on the truck. The driver just looked at me and said something like you see things out here at night that no one would believe, or words to the effect. I was pretty excitited at the time.

This happened 18 years ago. I had no idea who to tell it to or report it to until seeing something about the National UFO Reporting Center on TV last night on the History Channel. Also, I was concerned about saying anything to anyone other than my wife as it could have effected my professional life.

I did not see what looked like a craft. The light was so bright and it moved so fast I was simply stunned. The humming noise was very loud. I can only descpribe is a "electrical" in nature. No other way to describe the sound other than the volume.

I believe there is more to this. However, in an effort to keep from sounding like I'm crazy I will leave this report as is. It was the strangest experience of my life. I do not drink or do drugs. Never have. It would be possible for someone to think I was under the influance after giving the full details of the incident. I don't believe I was abducted. However, the truck and driver and electrical problems (which cured themselves) with the car would tend to make it look like I was abducted or came close.

To this day I have no idea what happened.
