On Sunday evening, June 29, 1997, my husband and I were getting ready to go to bed. It was approximately 10:09 p.m. Suddenly all the dogs in the neighborhood started barking and my husband went outside to see what all the commotion was about. He ran back in the house yelling for me to come and look. I went out on our front porch and looked up into the sky to where my husband was pointing. There was an object in the sky to the north, it was heading south. At first I thought, so what, there's an airplane in the sky. Then the object stopped and hovered in one place, it then slowly began to move back and forth, from north to south, then south to north, north to south, south to north, for about 8 or 9 minutes. Suddenly the object shot straight up into sky then stopped and hovered. At this point I began to get the chills. Suddenly three rays of white light shot out from this object in a downward direction. The object continued to hover for another minute or so, then the !beams disappeared and the object began to move back and forth again (north, south, north, south). The object then came directly toward us, heading south, and flew over us. Until it was directly over us there was absolutely no sound whatsoever. When it was directly over us, you could hear an engine-type noise. When it was directly over us, it appeared to be an airplane, but I have never seen an airplane move the way this object moved. Nor have the dogs in my neighborhood ever barked at an airplane. It was bizarre. What the heck was it? I don't know how far away it was. I would say it definitely was not as far away as the stars or anything, guessing I would say maybe about 1500-2000 feet in the air.We live in a semi-rural desert area. My husband and I are in our early 40's. I have been a paralegal for 15 years, he trains horses.If you wish to contact me please use my Email address. I would very much like to know what I saw. I don't know much about the latest in military airplanes and all that, and if the military is capable of making airplanes that can move like this, I sure would like to know. On the other hand, if this was a UFO I would like to know that too. Thanks!
