My husband and I were leaving from a storage shed that out friend is renting and we are storing some items in. As I was backing out into the road, I asked my husband if it were clear his way. He didn't answer. I repeated again, more insistently, because his friend was right behind us in needing to pull onto the main road. He finally sais for me to stop and look over the mountain top in front of us. I said I couldn't because our friend needed out too. He insisted, so I told him to let me pull into the wide spot beside the driveway we'd just backed out of.

We pulled into the wide spot and I looked up and saw a huge bright bluish white light sitting just behind the mountaintop. I thought it was yhe moon and voiced my opinion. My husband told me to take a good look again. By this time our friend pulled over too. We all sat and watched as the light changed shapes several times along with colors. It reminded us of fire on a mountain except it moved in odd patterns, changed colors from white to bluish whiite to pink to yellow. It changed size from huge to small and back again. Its shape was a ball of light, a mushroom shape, and even appeared to separate into 2 and back into 1. This went on for over a half hour. I took video, as best I could, considering it was on my cheap cell phone.

We finally left. As we were heading back into town, we kept looking behind us. We didn't see it any more. The 3 of us agreed that it had to be a UFO. It was unlike anything we'd ever seen before.
