|Tinkerbell? ball of fast moving white light
Driving home from work , I had just turned east on Mckellips rd. from Meridian when I saw a ball of bright white light traveling east to west along the top of the mountains, as it got to the large butt (Signal Butt?) on the east side of the Butt it stopped and went straight up and down twice then up once more went in a circle at the top. On the second downward movement I saw light reflect on the side of the Butt. It went around the front of the Butt slowly. I was stopped on the side of the road watching this , when I first stopped I called a friend to have him mark the time and listen to me. I decided to get home and get my bionoculars, when Idid this the ball of light was gone. I could just kick myself for not waiting to see how it left! and in what direction, etc. I watch the skies often, I now what aircraft look like, "falling stars", meteors, but I have never seen anything like this before! VERY white, bluewhite, fast silent reminded me of Tinkerbell in Peter Pan.
