Column of light -with Amber & Yellow beams within it(like a information or energy gathering satilite device)

I was walking down a trail at 3am in the morning back in 2005, when I looked back down the trail and thought I saw someone with a head lamp on coming toward me but it was a 1/4 of a mile back. I stopped and adjusted my backpack and looked again at it and it seemed like 2 or 3 led lights that were together (but orangish colored) close together and I couldn't tell what it was-looked like it was staying in one place which was weird.

So I started moving toward it and walked down the trail after it. It stayed there slightly off the trail. As I got closer I couldn't see it because it was hidden behind the trees that were along the trail.

When I got closer to the left hand side of the trail I put my back pack down on the side of the trail and walked up and over the side of the trail and though the woods -when I got to the top of the hill on the side of the trail and was in the woods I could see in this big field (for cows -but they have no cows) this column of light.

The column of light was an amber and light yellow. Similar to a column (about 20-25 ft tall and about 1 1/2ft wide) Within the column were vertical 2-3" beams that were amber and yellow in color. The whole column slowly rotated from the left to the right, in place and smaller beams the same (2-3") would move from the center of it like it was scanning the grass bellow it from the column out around it about 3-4 feet out -from the center about ten feet up. It hovered above the ground by a few inches, it slowly moved within a small area along the field less than six to ten feet that I saw it move. I don't recall it making any sounds. There was no metal or glass, only beams of light.

An amber & yellow column of lights (like a information or energy gathering satellite device) I don't know, that's my best guess.

I thought it was gathering information or energy from the area below it-I was so frightened that I only could watch it for a few minutes once I found it doing that. I wanted to run and was scared it would follow me. I calmly and briskly walked away from it and kept looking back. I don't know how it got there or what ever happened after I left.

I always look toward that side of the trail even to this day. I know it wasn't anything supernatural. It was a far more intelligent being than us that was in controlling it. I just thought someone should know what I saw.

If there was a way in this medium I would for you. It would take less words.

When I noticed this site I thought it important to explain what I saw to a credible place and have it documented. Unfortunately I had no cell phone back then with a camera with me. I will submit a sketch -but it's not even close to how cool it really looked.

Thank you for this medium (for explaining what I saw).
