Location: Bangor, ME
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 minutes
A bright light hovering in the sky, closes into itself, then takes off at an incredible speed.

I live in an area less than a mile from the old Dow Air Force Base, the site now houses Bangor International Airport. It was at night, in a little patch of woods known as Brown Woods Trail. My boyfriend and myself were in the woods, no flashlights, just darkness, when we came to a clearing. Coming over the treetops and moving towards us was a bright light. We thought it must be a helicopter as we are less than a mile from the airport. The light just hovered there, making no noise what so ever. As soon as I pointed at it and mentioned it being there, the light seemed to close into itself until it was just a pinpoint of light and then took off straight up at an incredible speed. I don't believe we have the kind of technology it would require to travel at such speeds. Two months previously, in the same general area I experienced the exact same thing.
