A brief and disturbing encounter on the way to town some years ago.

This is the first sight like this I have seen.Am glad there is a place to tell what things are going on out there. Saw this thing back around 1980 and thought I was crazy.Lived halfway between Arkansas City and Winfield Kansas.Was driving to town, and just a mile east of the house saw a light behind the hedge row. Looked like a plane coming this way from the airport, but the limbs of the trees were dimly lit around the light. The light was amoungnst the limbs, and small dim "sparks" were radiating from the light. I stopped and watched, but left as soon as the light quit. It was too close and I didn't want to know what it was.
