BRIGHT LIGHT...LOST POWER TO MISSILE SITE...LEFT AT HIGH RATE OF SPEED

I WAS STANDING OUTSIDE AT A HAWK MISSLE SITE IN THE PARKING LOT AT ABOUT 1:00 AM AND I SAW A BRIGHT LIGHT COMING TOWARDS ME, I BELIEVE FROM AN EASTERLY DIRECTION TRAVELING WEST...AS IT WOULD GET CLOSER THE LIGHTS ON THE SITE KEPT GETTING DIMMER AND THE GENERATORS WERE GRADUALLY LOSING THEIR POWER. WHEN IT GOT UP CLOSE I COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING BUT A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT AND WHEN THE POWER WENT OUT THE LIGHT JUST SEEMED TO JUST HOVER STATIONERY FOR ABOUT A MINUTE. IT THEN TOOK OFF FASTER THAN ANYTHING I HAVE EVER SEEN MOVE TOWARDS THE SOUTHEAST. THE GENERATOR OPERATOR'S IMMEDIATELY RESTARTED THE GENERATORS AND I WENT INTO THE COMMAND CENTER AND REPORTED THE INCIDENT TO HOMESTEAD AIR FORCE BASE. THE REACTION I GOT WAS..."THANKYOU...WE'LL TAKE CARE OF IT"!
