Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 min.
witnessed a small unidentifiable object up close ( 25 yards)

A friend and I were out off-roading in his new truck in a fairly rural part of Kennebunk. Coming out of a trail that opened onto the dirt road that leads back to paved roads, we saw the object. It was about 3 feet across, and had a light on each hemisphere. Each light moved independently of the other. When we first spotted the object it was using it's lights to investigate a nearby field. It was hovering about 1 - 2 feet above the tree line. It was also making the strangest humming/whizzing sound. It then swept it's lights over us (still in the truck), and then started to move towards us. At that point we bolted for the main road. I personally (as the passanger) watched it either dissappear or move too fast to be seen. As we fled the scene, I looked back to see that it had reappeared higher up in the sky, and in cloud cover that was not there before.
