Duration:2-3 minutes
We were woken by a low humming noise and an object with a bright light descending from the sky. It landed across the water from our house and after a short time, it disappeared in a giant flash of light.

My family and I were woken up at about 12:30 by a low humming noise. I was the first one to the window and saw an object- probably about 100-150 feet long- with a bright light encompassing it descending from the sky, approximately 3/4 mile away. It landed across the water from our house behind a line of trees, where it sat for about 2 minutes, during which time all we could see was a glow extending above the tree line. After 2-3 minutes there was a bright flash and then nothing. We checked the general area of the landing- very rural- the next day, but found no signs of anything. We brought our dog with us- a hunting dog who had been bird hunting in this area with us many times. Although we didn't notice that the area had been physically disturbed, our dog acted very odd- very nervous, like he does in the middle of a thunder storm. But when we got him back in the boat and away from the area he calmed down and returned to normal.
