Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Saw a light circling a mountain.

I was sitting on a pulloff looking over the rondout reservoir and noticed a bright blue shooting star. Shortly after, i noticed a light moving from behind a mountain on the horizon. I originally thought it was a plane but it then started circling the mountain at great speeds. I stepped out of my car and heard nothing, so i got back in and watched. After a few minutes the object rose up into the sky and dimmed, after about 3 or 4 seconds it lit up instantly and started doing bigger faster circles around the mountain, even coming close to the reservoir at times. Once i saw the object's circles starting to get closer to me i got scared and turned my car on and drove home, very frightened.
