At approximately 2300 hrs+/-, I had come upstairs to go to bed. My bed faces a north east window. I had taken off my glasses and left them down stairs.

As I laid down on my bed, I saw these odd bright lights to the right in my window that looked like white fire works. So I got up and went back down stairs to get my glasses. I looked out the window at the base of my stairs to see if I could see the lights a few saw this satellite type object way up just kind of moving up and down. I thought it was like it was trapped and couldn't get away from something.

I noticed a glow around my vehicles that suddenly dimmed. I went back to bed but stayed awake to see what was going to happen. The one thing just sort of hovered in that area. The lights on it would sometimes be one or 2 appearing to be white or blue but then it would change and become a series of lights in a line.

I live extremely rural. There is a major flight path over my home. When a plane flew over, the object disappeared off to the left of my view.

Also in the view of this window is a tree and branches of another. These trees are about 15 yards from my window and about 20 feet from each other.

When the object reappeared it seemed to ascend from behind the full tree in view of my window. The object seemed pretty high up. It wasn't close to the house. It was at a distance that I saw this.

The night sky was extremely clear. I was getting scared and woke up my husband. He said all he could see was distant stars.

I have always been a skeptic on ufo sightings. I know what I saw and the way it acted I'm pretty certain that it was one.

We did have thunderstorms pass through the area between 1600 and 1700 yesterday as well.


The view out of my window is toward the direction of a town called Northfield. Before I went back upstairs when. I was looking out the downstairs window, the ufo looked like something (white laser beams) was being shot out of it.

While I was upstairs, I could see the object moving side to side like it was rocking. It would also move up and down. It was more like a cigar shape than a sphere or whatever I originally check marked in the box.



My late father in law also saw a ufo many years ago. He spoke of it up to the day that his alzheimers got too bad. He passed away in 2002. I never met him.
