Location: Milton, WV
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A huge, bright , glowing light was seen in the sky above the hills of our property, making no sound whatsoever....

It was a Wednesday evening, approximatly 10 pm, when me and my 4 children were driving home from church services. We live about 3 miles off the main highway, on a one lane country road, which is very curvy and hilly. As I turned off the main highway, I noticed, far away in the sky above the hills a bright light. I didn't think anything of it at that moment. As I was driving down our road home, going around curves, up and down some small hills, I still noticed this bright light. It was in the northeast sky.

As I neared our home, going down this one particular straight stretch of the one lane road, I noticed this same light, brighter than ever before, right above the hill line, right above our property. It was 10 times larger and brighter than when I had first seen it, turning off the main highway, 3 miles away.

As I pulled down our driveway, our pet dogs ran in front of my van, barking, yelping and acting scared to death. I could not see this light from the bottom of the driveway because we live down in a narrow holler, but I did see it still hovering over the trees BEFORE pulling down the long steep driveway. When I got out of the van, I noticed no sound whatsoever. I thought maybe the light was a helicopter hovering. But, I heard no sound. It was deathly silent all around, except for our dogs.

I told the kids to quickly get out of the car and run to the house. When we all hopped out, the dogs started running around and around our home, barking, looking up at the sky. When I mean running around our home, that is exactly what they were doing. They were running at breakneck speed, in circles around the home. They may have circled around our home 3 or 4 times, all the while barking and yelping. After making sure my kids were safe inside, I opened the door to look out to see if I could see anything. The dogs were there, right against the door, and when I opened it, they ran inside. Now, my 2 dogs are outside dogs and NEVER come inside. This was very unusual behavior for them. I couldn't get them back out the door. They layed down in the floor and whined and cried when I tried to get them back outside. I ended up letting them stay inside for awhile till they calmed down.

Whatever it was went away. But, several months later, in the local newspaper someone had wrote in the "Vent Line", asking if anyone else saw the bright light above the hills in the vicinity of Hurricane/Milton area on the very same night my family saw the light. So we are not the only one's to see it.
