Duration:12 seconds
I was asleep in our tent camping with my family in The Manistee National Forrest. We have a tent that has a screen ceiling so we can star gaze before going to sleep. I awoke approximately 3:00AM I was looking up when I opened my eyes I was looking at the tree capopy and tree line at the stars. I noticed what i thought was a star it was alot larger than the other stars it was brighter too. I thought it odd.

Then it began to move, very slowly along the tree line and I lost sight of it as it went into the thicker tree canopy. It was a bright white ball of light it moved very slow it was very distrurbing; I was afraid. I just lay there almost unable to believe what i just witnessed.

I have never expierenced anything like that before. I will never forget it.I wish i had grabbed my phone or woke someone up but it was such a quick incident. Alas, it is whatever it is.I have never had any belief in UFOs or aliens prior to 2012, but after this incident and another my daughter and I had prior to this incident in Dec.2012, I have a much different opinion now. We are not alone, there are others out there. As unsetteling as that statement is, I know it is a fact.
