Location: Battle Creek, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:1 plus hrs.
The light showed bright through the dense snow storm.

During the winter of '93, sometime towards the end of Jan., a friend of mine, my younger brother, and my self were outside in my parents drive way. My parents were gone on a winter vacation. On this particular night it was snowing quite heavily. The three of us were out side talking, (as my friend was about to leave), when my friend saw a bright light in the western sky. At first we thought nothing of it.

As we stood there talking for about five minutes, the light never moved from its position. At that point we relized it was not a plane.

Now, we were not really talking but paying close attention to the object. There was no sound and it did not move from it's position in the air. As I said it was snowing quite hard and would not have been a star.

My brother became very scared and ran back into the house. Shortly there after my friend and I felt it would be best if he left. I went back in the house.

When my friend arrived at his home he called me. He told me as he drove east back towards his house, which was about 15 miles to the east of my parents house, he lost sight of the light.

After some pressure from my friend, he got me to go out to check and see if the light was still there. I went out and looked and the light was still in the air. It was snowing harder and the light was brighter. I was immediatly froze in my tracks, and chills ran through my body. I was on the cordless phone with my friend and when I didn't say any thing he started yelling.

I snapped out of it and told him it was there. So we stayed on the phone together as I watched the object.

After about thirty minutes, I could not take the cold any longer and had to return inside. The light was still in the sky when I went back in to the house. I had witnessed odd lights in the night sky before, but nothing ever like this and nothing this extrordinary since.
