Shape: Unknown
Duration:3 minutes

The area I'd lived in at time was not close to many houses, the street was surrounded by woods and behind my house was a highway.

At 3 am I remember waking up for no reason and i couldn't fall back asleep. My room was in the attic and i could open my window and look out and see nearly everything in the sky.

I did this, and you couldnt hear a single thing outside, it was dead quiet. I noticed a bright light in the sky maybe 2 1/2 football fields away, not very high up, while i was smoking a cigarette out the window.

It began coming closer. Moving like a helicopter could, stopping for brief seconds, til it was nearly over my house.

I honestly freaked out and hid under my covers. It was the strangest night of my life.
