Duration:00:05 aka 5 mins
Driving south on Garfield towards spring dale, during an early/bright sunset, I saw to the East a BRILLIANT large bright light, hovering 200-500ft from the ground (it was difficult to gage how far or close it was on the horizon in proximity to me) I watched the single stinging ball of light hover in the same spot for 2 minutes, then it simply vanished in the blink of an eye.

I have seen strange lights in the sky many times before and not been able to explain it, but this one stood out to me and struck a chord for some reason.

I am writing this 4 days after the initial sighting, because soon after something else unsettling happened to me.

I’m not sure where to write this story for you, or if I should include it. Because it may seem a little crazy or maybe even like nothing big at all,
