Very Bright Object in the sky near Whitefish, Montana

I am just outside of Whitefish, Montana on a small mountain lake. I happened to look outside just after midnight last night. The mountains were lit up from a very bright light in the sky, in the direction of Glacier National Park.

At first I thought to myself, wow.. what a huge planet so close, I have never seen anything like it! Then all of a sudden it just shot out to space, got smaller and smaller until it was like a pin head and disappeared.

I never thought of or considered anything about UFO’s before last night. But, I don’t think this could have been anything else.

This will definitely an experience I will never forget and will change the way I perceive such matters.

((NUFORC Note: Possible Iridium flare? PD))
