That's NOT the moon!

There had been a lightning storm, the power was out, but the storm was over. We saw the full moon rise from behind the mountain, and someone said "Look at the moon" It rose so fast we knew it was not the moon. It was a very bright orb in the sky. moving quickly toward us and dancing around in jerky movements. Two of us ran outside to see better. It came closer, was very bright and gave off shadows, but no noise. We stood there awhile, I don't know how long. There was a feeling of awe and peace, but after awhile it came really close. The color went from orangey to whitish blue. Next I remember, I heard our other friend who had stayed inside yelling "come back come back" and the light slowly withdrew. We went inside and told him it was all right. The thing withdrew and danced off into the distance, then moved erratically and went straight out away. The clock was stopped, all power still off, so we don't know how long this took. It was really wierd and has stayed with me all these years, but I'm not really sure of the date so the date and time are uncertain, only that it was in 1977 at Owl Head Ranch in the Tortilita Mountains of Arizona
