Duration:15 mins
Light moving slowly in a circle outside Billings

It was around 9:00 pm October 20th, 2010. I had just arrived home and was sitting in my car in my driveway talking on the phone, when a circular light appeared in the sky towards Laurel. At first I thought it was a plane, but it soon became clear that it was not. It was lower than a plane or helicopter, and moving extremely slow, so slow it was almost hovering. It was moving slowly in the same circular patch of sky, changing directions every few seconds.

I watched it doing this same thing for around ten minutes. Then got out of my car, and continued to watch it from outside. It appeared as if there was multiple lights shining from the object, but not flashing or colored like an airplane. I then ran into the house and got my Mom, by the time we got back outside it was a little further away, but still visible and doing the same thing. She confirmed it was not a star or airplane, or anything like she had seen. The whole event lasted at least 15 minutes, and we went inside before it disappeared so it could have been there much longer.

I am still in awe over the entire thing and know it was unlike anything I have ever witnessed before. I am 21 years old and have never in my life bought into the whole UFO phenomena, but I have no other explanation for what I witnessed last night.
