Duration:3-5 min
Round orb of light seen in back yard.between apr.and oct 1997.

Can't remember the exact date,but it was sometime in 1997.

It was about 10:30, late one night, and I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water. As I was filling the glass, I looked out the window,and saw a bright white light, out in the far back part of the property, in between the trees and the branches.

I would say it was aprx 75-100 ft from the window.

The orb of light was stationary at first,about 4-5 feet off the ground.

It was about the size of a basketball, maybe a little smaller. It seemed to know I was there,because it started to move closer and closer to my location, until it got to the iron fence about 50 ft away..then it stopped.

At that moment, it looked larger in diameter. It just hovered there for about 20 sec. I really started to feel uneasy/paranoid/afraid at this point.

After hovering there,the object started coming towards the window at an incredible rate of speed,from about 50ft away. My 1st reaction/thought was " holly sh*t,this things gonna fly right thru the fr*ckin window!!!" " I gotta get the heck outta here"

Needless to say, I was VERY scared at this point...and thats exactly what I did...I RAN..as fast as I could to the back back bedroom, where I closed the door, quick like.I completely expected to hear the sound of shattering glass behind me as I ran...but it never occured. I was dumbfounded,totally. After about 2 mins. in the room, I decided to go see if it was still there..but the object was gone. This dang thing,whatever it was, seriously scared the beggebbies outta me... Haven't seen it since.

End of story.((I would like to know, though,if anyone else has seen this kind of object/ufo.))
