A very slow flying orb at roughly 300' directly overhead spotlighted me.

I wanted to share with you what happened to me last night.

I live in a cabin in the woods in a fairly rural area. Last night, just before I was about to retire, about midnight, I went outside. When I do so afterdark I usually carry a flashlight and shine it just long enough to make sure that there are no snakes in my path, as we do have a few types of vipers here, including the quiet and lazy copperheads that would just let you step on them before they would move. A rattlesnake would make it's presence known....... anyway, I am digressing.

When I turned the flashlight out I quickly noticed that there was another light source coming from over my head. It was quite bright, bright enough to leave very distinct shadows on the ground from the leaves on the trees. I noticed that the light source was moving, and looked up in the direction from which it seemed to be coming. Flying quite slowly, and very quietly, directly coming from behind my cabin there was an orb about the size of a beachball. It was a vivid golden color, and it flew nearly as low as a crop-duster airplane.

It shone a light that was most definitely aimed directly at me. After it had passed over me for a very short distance it turned off the light, and it simply disappeared. There was never any sound whatsoever from it as it passed and then vanished into the dark of the night.

I have a friend that is currently staying here with me, so I came back inside the cabin and told him about what had just occurred. He quickly came back outdoors with me. We both heard a sonic boom far off into the distance as I was giving him the details about the object's trajectory. I do not know if that was related to the orbs flight. Needless to say, my retirement plants were dashed. I was just a wee bit too excited to go to bed.

I would like to add here that I am in no way an U.F.O. fanatic. I'm not even an x-files fan, for that matter but, I have pretty much always believed that there must be other intelligent life forms in the universe, and that they may very likely have visited our little planet in the past, and still do so in this day and age. Nevertheless, I had not expected to have such an up-close and personal experience, as personal as I would ever like that to be. It was directly spotlighting me from an overhead distance of perhaps two to three-hundred feet. That, good enough for me, thank you! Anyway...... I thought that you might be interested in this.
