|Two friends and myself were doing salmon fishing on a river in early October, at night. When we filled our catch, we walked out of the woods and set along the road and waited for a ride that had dropped us off earlier.
It was now getting close to midnight, when all of a sudden, the wind picked up to about twenty miles an hour or so. When this happened, we all looked up through the mature hardwood trees. When all of a sudden, four sets of spot lights came into our field of view. Two side by side, with the other two directly below the others. They moved very slowly, just barely above the tree tops, maybe a mile or two an hour tops.
There was no noise except the wind which put us all on edge, because the chance of it being a helicopter were out, due to the lack of engine or blade noise. Then it got worse, in a triangle formation the size of a 747 airplane, were two huge glowing orange balls trailing behind the spot lights giving the object shape and size.
The glowing balls were at least thirty feet across or so. We sat there in a dumfounded stare, until it past out of sight, then the wind calmed down snapping us back to reality to discuss what just happened.
A few minutes later are ride came and we all excitedly told him what happened as we made the four mile drive back to town. On the last mile stretch running parallel with us was a helicopter, obvious by the blade sounds, but at first sight sent a chill through us. The helicopter kept pace with us into town and then fizzled off some where.
We told a few people about what we saw and of course we got the "You're Crazy" look a lot. Then about two weeks later my cousin was sitting on his balcony late at night having a drink, when he saw exactly what we had described, going across the woods line outside of town. We never saw this thing again, but there's lots of swamp land and woods that give good cover. Which leaves only a couple of questions, what the heck was it and why was it in the middle of B.F.E.
