Duration: 10-12 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Brilliant lights in the sky 100 fee directly overhead on a dead quiet nite,Without a sound,Nothing.

Dead quiet, warm nite beside a large field. I was in a house with some friends at the edge of the open field. A friend came running inside where the rest of us were and yelled "come outside quick and look at this".

We went to the back yard and on the far edge of the field,three large red lights were assending up from behind the trees (about 1/2 mile away at the back of the field). They came to a stop about 50 ft above the trees (or so it looked from that distance]. About 10 seconds later two very large white lights came up from the same place and stopped above the red lights. After a few seconds the white lights started moving in our direction,very slowly and the red lights went back down behind the trees.

As the lights got about halfway across the field the hairs on my neck were standing up. We all knew something wasn't right about this. There wasn't a sound coming from anywhere. A dog about a half mile away started barking. It was so quiet that nite you had no problem hearing it.

As the lights got closer, one of them veered off to the right over the trees about halfway over the field towards us. The other one was heading right over our heads. We were paralyzed.Before this we all had joked since childhood about ufo's and space men.

As the other one got closer {the est distance from the ground would be about 100'}I was going to run,but somehow stayed.The huge white light was just about over us and it started, very slowly to turn to the right over the trees.The whole time the thing that was the most obvious was that there was no sound or noise from it at all.Dead silent, directly over our heads,moving and not making any noise at all.The light was so bright you couldn't make out any shape. The light at about 100 ft over our heads was approx 50' in diameter.Incredibly bright. I don't know of anything that flies and can make precise turns like it did in the pitch dark of night that doesn,t make a sound.We looked at each other and nobody said a word. Something inside you lets you know when something is not right.With all of our knowledge,intelligence and reasoning we just knew what we saw.I happened apon a TV show and saw your web site, is why after all this time I feel relieved to tell someone that doesn't "yea OK sure" I have never been as frightened and thrilled at the same time in my life.
