Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
White light with no sound appears and disappears several times as it moves closer towards my direction

I took my small dog out to go potty on leash just after 10 pm. We live in the country and it's very wooded in this area with BLM land surrounding us. I am always on the alert for wildlife while outside. It was very quiet outside that night. The sky was pretty dark, I could see stars, but mostly it was cloudy.

As I was scanning the property, I was looking in the sky as well. I noticed a white light low in the sky behind my house it had an appearance like a white star, but it seemed odd to be so low in this area to me for some reason it seemed out of place. We do have neighbors behind us two houses. The one house directly behind us is roughly 250 feet away. The other neighbor along side them is even further from us.

As I kept an eye on this white light for several seconds it just disappeared. It wasn't because of cloud cover that I could see. Seconds went by and another white light showed up in the same area, but this time it appeared closer an! d even lower in the sky. It was so low I saw it between the trees on the properties behind our home, but as if it was still in the sky. Now I am certain this is not a star. As I am watching this white light it disappears once again. I thought that was it. Then seconds later a white light appears again this time on the road that runs along side my property that the neighbors behind me share. This light is moving fast towards my direction. I watch this light coming down the road it's going really fast and it seems higher than where I would think the car lights would be. What I noticed next is the light appears to be crossing from the road into the trees and towards my direction then it disappears for the third time about 50 or 60 feet from where I am standing. I waited to see if it was going to reappear again while thinking this may not be a good idea. My dog was done doing her business, and she never appeared to notice anything that transpired. I had a really ! bad migraine and I wanted to take a hot bath. I did not notic! ed any s ounds coming from the light. Not sure about the light shape appearing to be the same shape or not, it happened so fast. The size of the light when it got the closest I would say about the size of a car headlight. I heard no cars, I saw no cars on the road, I heard and saw no neighbors walking the road with flash lights. Which I don't think they could match the speed it was coming down the road though a steep grade I don't think a human could even run that fast in my opinion. Even if it was a car with no engine running, I would have heard the gravel sounds from under the tires. No usual smells. SO it's a mystery.
