A craft that was bright and looked like it was on fire was 300 yards away and came closer and I put a light on it, and it came closer.

It happend a little after five AM. I was setting up for a duck hunt in Back Bay on December 8th 2008. I was early and began putting out decoys and it was very very dark out.

I was faceing the opan water and out of nowhere a huge bright light the size of a small air plane came around a point off a cove it was the color of fire and extreamly bright and extrmaly fast. It was no more than 300 yards away from me and it was moveing closer to me.

I had no lights on during this time. As it came closer I became very scared and picked up my 2,000,000 power spotlight and pointed it at it. As soon as i turned it on the light that was like fire went out.

Five minuites later, a dark shadowy figure which was silent, came within 50 yards of me i was so scared. It was like it it knew it was spoted and then came to see what had made that light. and seconds latter it was gone, so i thought. I emmedittly called home to tell them what I had seen i was on the phone for about 15 minutes and while I was talking I saw the it agin and it was about .5 mile away and it was on or right above the water and in seconds it was in the sky and as high as the stars,

The whole incounter from beging to end was about 35-40 min. Oddly before this while I paddled my duck boat out to the duck blind there was a small metor shower or some like that and then a few right after the event. The fire like light was huge, bright, very fast, quite, and amazing.

I have never seen anything like this. terrifying but amazing.
