I saw a misterious giant blue ball of light like a helicopter flood light but it wasnt bright as to hurt your eyes.

On July 5th, 2005 I was coming from a fishing trip in Sargent, Texas. I believe it was between 8:50 PM or 15 minutes after 9. I had not long turned off of FM 457 on to FM 2611 which becomes FM 2004 N. I am not sure how long I had been driving, when all of a sudden the lights in my car blinked twice and then the car went dead. I coasted to a stop at the top of a slight hill that was a curve. I was frightened, for one I am female and was traveling alone and I was out in the middle of no where. I thought that the reason for my power going out in the car was because my brother had been using my car battery early that day and may not have tightened the battery cables properly and the cables had slipped lose. I didnít have a flash light on me so I grabbed my cell phone to call home and let someone know what had happened, then I decided to get out of the car knowing that my cell phone had a bright light on it and I was going to check the battery cables. Before I could open my cell phone to turn it on a bright bluish glow started to light up a thick wooded area across the highway from me. At first I thought it was another vehicle coming up behind me and I panicked for a moment because my car had stopped at the top of this hill in a curve and if the vehicle coming up took the curve to fast it would hit me.

But I quickly realized that it wasnít another vehicle I sat still watching the light in the woods get slightly brighter. The light wasnít bright like a blue white light bulb, it was more like the light from a giant blue flood light or helicopter flood light and I mean giant and the light didnít hurt your eyes it wasnít that sort of light. I watched it slowly start moving upwards through the trees. I sat in complete silence and watched it rise up out of the trees until it was above the trees and clearly in the sky with the stars for its back ground. It was a huge bluish translucent ball of light with the center of the ball much darker then the outer edges. It made no sound. The outer edges of the ball seem to vibrate or tremble slightly. It continuously rose up into the sky at first slowly, but the higher it got the faster it went. Which was straight up into the sky until it disappeared. I sat in the silent darkness for a few seconds then turned my car keys which I had never taken out of the ignition switch and the car started right up.

This is a true account of what I saw I have no reason to lie.
