Duration:5 minutes
TRIANGLE, ONE LIGHT ON EACH CORNER, VERY LITTLE NOISE, AND TWO SEPERATE WHITE LIGHT SPHERES.

IM SORRY THAT I WONT BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU MUCH DETAIL AS IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE THE EVENT OCCURRED. I WAS 17 YEARS OLD AND CAMPING WITH MY SISTER AND SOME FRIENDS AT A LAKE IN SOUTHERN WASHINGTON CALLED CRATER LAKE. AT APPROX. 2130 HRS., WE WERE SITTING AROUND A CAMP FIRE WHEN WE NOTICED A BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT COMING OFF OF THE MOUNTAIN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE. THE LIGHT LIFTED OFF OF THE MOUNTAIN AND FLEW ACCROSS THE LAKE IN A STREIGHT PATTERN. A FEW MINUTES LATER ANOTHER LIGHT DID THE SAME THING EXCEPT THIS TIME I FLASHED A FLASH LIGHT AT IT. WE THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A HELICOPTER LIGHT OR AN AIRPLANE OF SOME SORT BUT THE AIRCRAFT DID NOT MAKE ANY NOISE THAT WE COULD TELL.

LATER THAT NIGHT, AND I DONT KNOW WHAT TIME IT WAS, I WAS SLEEPING IN AN OPEN SCREENED ROOF DOME TENT WHEN I WOKE UP. IM NOT SURE WHY I WOKE UP, BUT AS I LOOKED UP, A TRIANGLER SHAPED AIRCRAFT HOVERED ABOVE OUR CAMP. IT WAS VERY LARGE AND APPARED TO BE ONLY A FEW HUNDRED FEET UP. THE AIRCRAFT MADE A SLIGHT HISSING AND ROARING NOISE BUT IT WAS VERY FAINT. I COULD NOT MOVE OUT OF FEAR BUT I DID NOTICE THAT THERE WAS A BRIGHT ROUND LIGHT ON EACH CORNER OF THE AIRCRAFT. I ALSO NOTICED THAT THE AIRCRAFT HAD A ROUNDED OFF EDGE, KIND OF LIKE A TIRE TUBE. I COULD SEE A CROSS BEAM TYPE STRUCTURE AROUND THE AIRCRAFT.

I JUMPED UP OUT OF BED AND RAN OUT OF MY TENT YELLING FOR MY SISTER. AS I STARTED YELLING, THE AIRCRAFT SLOWLY FLEW OUT OF SIGHT OVER THE MOUNTAINS BEHIND US. THE NEXT MORNING MY SISTER WAS TELLING ME THAT SHE THOUGHT I WAS TRYING TO PLAY A JOKE ON HER THE NIGHT BEFORE. SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WAS WOKEN UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT BY SOME COLORFULL LIGHTS SHINNING IN HER TENT. SHE THOUGHT IN HER SLEEP THAT IT WAS A COP CAR OUTSIDE AND FELT FRUSTRATED. SHE TOLD ME IN THE MORNING THAT SHE REALIZED THAT IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A COP CAR BECAUSE WE WERE ON AN ISLAND WITH NO BRIDGE ACCESS.

A LITTLE BIT OF MY BACKGROUND: I HAVE BEEN IN LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR APPROX. 2 YEARS. I HAVE SERVED IN THE US MILITARY AND IM NOT SAYING THAT THIS THING WAS FROM ANOTHER PLANET, BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYHTING LIKE IT BEFORE OR SINCE.
