Late 40's. Brightlight blue light, Lit up 1/2 football field, went over, swoop down, up and straight., Village, INDIA

My mother was milking water buffalo about 8pm, There was no electricity and dark. It was bamboo shed and I could see through it. My mother was facing opposite direction.

All of a sudden bright light went over our shed, swooped low went under bayan tree between the thick trunk 3-5 ft wide and thick roots that come down from long branch into the ground and went up because of row of houses that in the path and went straight parallel to the railway line.

I asked my mother what was that. Since see didn't see it, she said it's falling star.

I was about 6-7 yrs old. It was bright object. I couldn't see the shape, because from darkness to looking at bright object.

Light blue light, Shhoooo. sound. Distance between trunk and root 10-15 ft. Height about 10 ft ground to leaves, (not burned).

I wish I can draw it. When I got old and hearing about U F O., meteor shouldn't go up and straight and empty space between trunk and root. M.SC. Dip. Bact. (((deleted--Canadian University)) U.).

I will never forget or change the story.
