light orbs in woods and lower sky.

Various and odd light orbs in woods and low sky I am a married 59 year-old woman with a college education. I spend part of my time in a home surrounded with thick woods, at least 400 acres, near Bloomington, Indiana. There are a couple of neighbors about one acre of wooded area away from me on one side. The landscape is hilly with ravines and trees up to 100 feet tall.

Since October 2016 I have witnessed countless observations of strange lights from all sides of my home. I have become addicted to “orb gazing” every single night I visit this country home.

In a nutshell here are the types of lights I have seen over the year: Singular, stationary, white light orbs in various parts of the woods, usually from one to five feet high. I’m guessing they occur anywhere from 25 to 250 feet away from me. I have shined a flashlight on them and sometimes I can see a glowing “orb.” It’s hard to gauge their sizes, but from where I stand at the edge of the woods they are anywhere from 1-7 inches. (I’m just guessing. I’m not good with measurement.) Orbs that grow bigger and seem to shine right at me like a very bright flashlight. This scares me a bit. (I’m alone out there.) I get the sense the orbs know I’m there. The last night of observation a “flashlight” glared at me as I stood transfixed in my long driveway, then suddenly just went out! I scurried away fast and stayed on my porch.

Lights that literally move as though they were eyes and are peering around. They also wobble and will sneakily move position so that I have to keep moving my head to see where they went.

Morphing orbs. I swear they sometimes divide into two or more lights and then sometimes back to one. They sometimes change color from white to yellow, gold, orange or red. Mostly they are white.

Sometimes the orbs present themselves as “headlights,” but their lights are closer together. I get a bit spooked by these types of lights, as it appears to me that they are gawking around.

Lately I’ve observed bright flashes of light that appear like “flashlights” that move around. It’s difficult to explain how they move because they seem to be controlled by “someone” or “something,” but I am absolutely certain no human is out there. I open my windows to listen and I hear nothing.

Large reflected areas in the tree tops. I have no idea what these are. I have only been seeing them recently.

8. “Fake Stars.” I call them that because they used to fool me into thinking they were real stars. I will be looking out the upstairs windows at the trees and see sneaky little lights that first appear as stars suddenly disappear and move to another spot near, on top, or in front of the tall trees. I’ve noticed these fake stars only come out if there are real stars out. Last night I saw one on the same night as a full moon. It seemed to twinkle at me and when I watched it, it disappeared. I found it moments later in a lower segment of the tree. Then it disappeared again.

I have been able to sometimes catch the lights with my smart phone. I wish I had a really good night time video cam. It frustrates me not to be able to show what I see to others. A friend and my son have both seen at least one orb each.

I used to be such a skeptic and never believed in ufos or ghosts, but I have opened my mind to many possibilities. I go from thinking these lights are mystical, spirits, ghosts, entities from another dimension, and ufos. Because I am observing more “flashlight” movement and am getting the feeling that some of these lights are being controlled by some hidden force I am actually getting scared (again, like when I first started seeing these crazy things) and feel the need to share this information with others who are interested. Why is no one I know interested? This is phenomenal stuff happening and everyone I know doesn’t care. My god, something’s going on and we need to pay attention. At the very least it seems scientists would be all over this. They know everything about glow worms and fireflies and planets, but they are mute about the light orbs in the woods and fake stars in the sky.

So in conclusion of this long-winded essay, I just want to know what these lights are. UFOs? Should I be concerned?
