|Light seen in the Black Hills
Last Summer, I worked at a Boy Scout camp in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
In the summer time we often have great storms that come through the area. It was at night a storm was approaching from the west, which is standard. Often times the storms put out great lightning shows, so I was outside to enjoy the show.
I noticed a bright light hovering in the distance, and initially thought it was a star. I realized though that it couldn't be a star, because obviously the sky was obscured by the approaching storm.
I observed it for a while, and then saw it move at a high rate of speed towards the North.
