no craft seen. we heard a bang against the house and the bedroom blinds began turning red as if someone had backed a car up two our bedroom window and stepped on the brakes. our bedroom window is 8 feet off the ground. by the time i looked out the red light had gone out. But at the back of our property approx. 300 feet away it a group of trees there appared to be a column of fire coming from the inside the group of trees. 5 to 10 feet wide and about 30 feet high. it only lasted 2 or 3 seconds. At the time this occured there was a very light covering of snow. i went out to the trees to see what had been on fire and found no sign of anything no snow was even melted.the next day i searched the farm field behinh us and also found nothing. its been two and a half years since this happened and we still don't have any idea of what it was. one of our neighbors saw the bright red light that lasted only a couple of seconds but not the fire. we just wonder if you have ever heard of anything like this thanks ( maybe crazy ) ((name deleted))

((NUFORC Note: Since the witness addresses lights, we presume that the sighting occurred at night. Hence, we have changed the time from "1024 hrs." to "2224 hrs.." PD))
