Duration:20 minutes
Too slow and bright to be man made.

I was driving home from work at approx. 12:40 am and I saw a huge extremly bright light up in the sky. I of course thought that it was a jet coming in to land at the airport but as I got closer to my house this craft was still pretty much in the same spot. I thought that this waz very weird because it was going so slow I thought that it was going to fall out of the sky.

As I approached my street I could see that the railroad crossing gates were all down and flashing. These are a triple set of tracks and I thought that was odd because usually not all of them go down at the same time. And the gates go down just a few minutes before the actual train goes by and no train came through.

So I pulled into my driveway and this object was directly behind my house but out over the lake. And for about a minute it stood still and then it started moving again. Still at the speed of a snail. I stood on my back deck watching it creep along ever so slowly.......it was actually painful to stand and watch it it was slow.....like watching paint dry.......anyway, I watched it for 20 minutes before it was out of view and then I went in the house.

This craft/object was sort of helicopter shaped. It was fairly low in the sky and it made a sound like a jet only softer more masssive. I appeared to have three very large, (two story size), windows on the front and the light that came from those windows was the brightest I have ever seen in my life. Also it flew with the front down slightly.

I definatly know it was not a jet and it was not a helicopter. I was close enough to see the windows and the shape of this thing. Also there were no other lights lit up on it. No flashing lights and no tail section like a jet or helicopter.

So that is my sighting as I saw it.

This has not been the first encounter I have had with "others". I do have other stories that started when I was a child. I believe that soon we will have actual evidence to take care of the naysayers. But until then it will remain a small group of us that know what is out there.
