Location: Huntington, VT
Shape: Light
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Circular light illuminating behind clouds, darted off at very high speed, reappeared and darted off again several times.

At approximately 830pm, my husband and I were walking our dog in the dark. We live in a very rural location with woods all around, no city or town in sight with only a couple neighbors. It was dark but we were not using a flashlight as the moon was out enough to light our way faintly. It was overcast, but not raining/snowing. At almost the same time, my husband and I saw an illuminating, circular (disk) light coming from an area above the woods, which appeared like it was shining down through the clouds, rather than from the ground up. We both pointed and acknowledged it to each other when, all of a sudden, the light moved literally at warp speed to the left and vanished. Then almost immediately, it reappeared in the same spot that we had just seen it. It hovered for a few seconds then darted to the right (again at a VERY high rate of speed). Once again, it reappeared in the same spot. We both never saw the light coming back to the spot, it would just reappear. It made a final dart to the left and disappeared, not to return. We stood there in awe for a minute or two waiting for it to come back, which it didn't. We turned around and headed back home (that was enough excitement for us!). We walked about a 1/4 mile or so back to our house and before we turned into our driveway, the light reappeared from our right, made a sharp turn and went in a straight line from in front of us, then over our heads, and behind us...and disappeared. Again, we were in awe and stayed out in our field (in the complete darkness, no neighbors in site, no towns, no cities, etc) and waited for over about 15 minutes. It once again reappeared in the night sky, hovered, and took off. That was the last of it we saw. We did not hear any noise from an airplane or helicopter and the speed at which this object was traveling was absolutely astonishing - it would go from one side of the horizon to the other in a fraction of a second. There is nothing that we can think of that has the ability to go that fast (airplane, helicopter, drone, etc). We thought perhaps it was a deer hunter with a very high powered spot light shining it into the sky; however, the light appeared to be shining down from the clouds rather than up and we assumed that if it was a spotlight, we would see some sort of "beam" of light illuminating the woods/tree line and extending into the night sky, which we did not witness. The entire surroundings and night sky was very dark, just this light illuminating in one spot in the sky, coming from the clouds. Also, if it was a hunter with a spot light, the manner in which the light presented itself didn't seem "human-like", if it was a hunter "playing" with his spot light we would think it would of been more human-like behavior with the light waving back and forth, etc. and what we witnessed was split second speeds, hovering then darting off, reappearing without any light coming back to that same spot, etc. There very well could be a good explanation of what we saw; however, witnessing it first hand, it just didn't seem like anything we could explain away (airplane, Chinese lantern, helicopter, drone, etc). It was a very interesting encounter, one that my husband and I will always remember!
