|Bright Light in the Sky
My son asked me pick him up from second shift. I left the house and he called my cell phone to say he wasn't ready. My husband was grouchy and sitting next to me in the car.
As I was talking to my son I felt a pang in my eyes from an extremely bright light. I looked ahead on the road to see if I needed to dim my headlights for another car but the angle was wrong so I looked up. There was a bright white circle jetting across the sky. It wasn't too close but I could tell it was large.
The light did not blink and it moved amazingly fast at a curved angle. I could not distinguish any rotation. There was no trail behind it and I didn't hear any noise. It wasn't any kind of spotlight.
I was talking to my son and I pointed to my husband urgently. I asked did you see that light but he hadn't seen me pointing because it was dark.
There was complete cloud cover over the road I was traveling. You couldn't see any stars. It was a good bit above the tree line but it had to be flying low enough to be under the cloud cover.
I looked in the local paper to see if anyone else had noticed it or written about it but I haven't heard anything. It made me so excited but also made my stomach ache.
I know I saw something AMAZING.
I was really disappointed my husband didn't see it because I would have liked to share the excitement with him...so I'm sharing it with you guys instead.
