After the night shift at a local travel plaza in mt. vernon MO me and a friend and his girlfriend went to a local hangout. We went there to drink a few beers. We were setting on the tailgate of his pickup talking about work. A few min after we got there i noticed a light to the N/W. At first i thought it was a light on a light pole at a farm house. It looked like a tree was swaying in front of it. Then it stoped flickering and begain to get brighter. It was moving closer we kept talking. I thought it was maybe an airplane but it was moving kinda strange, you know left to right and up and down. The closer it got the more I watched it after about 30 mins I began to get a little uneasy you might say. At this time I had drank no more than 2 beers so i was not at all drunk, although that might have helped my nerves a little. The light looked like it was watching us, that made me feel very strange. My frend was downing beers i told him to check it out he said (aw! w its just a plane) I said, "You think? It dosent move like a plane." (I grew up beside an airport and have seen many planes large and small military and civilan chopers and well you get the point). Well the (LIGHT) was very bright now and extremely close i was standing now I was very excited and scared and kinda glad or something I was finally seeing that thay were realy real!!! My friend was more interested in his girlfriend, and seemed to not realy care until it was directly over our heads. There was no sound other than me screaming at him and her to run or start the truck and repeating the F word many times as it set over us no more then 100 yards above the trees. It seemed to be moving slightly but so slow. I couldnt figure out if I should run or just crawl under the truck and hide. I was realy expecting it to be a choper, but when it got about 300 to 400 yards away and no noise was herd my brain just went stupid. I kinda panicked slightly but I wanted to see it so I d! idnt run. I was afraid of what it might do after seeing shows ! like FIR E IN THE SKY about travis walton I just had to stay and be sure it was what I thought it was. I mean hell its not every day you see something like this. It was so damn close, but when it came to a complete stop it looked like it was turning its light down as if to shine on us or maybe the whole ship was tilting. As the light was turning down the whole damn thing lit up from the center out. It was like a row of floodlights but the lights werent lit the whole length of the ship, just the center edge. Now when they hit the lights I thought, "O shit it was like being hit with two thousand volts, I hauled ass and ran as fast as I could for about 10 yards. I realised I wasent hurt or being picked up. Although I was shaking so bad it was like i had been droped in ice water, the shaking part I mean. So I stoped and looked back and they were still by the truck looking up with there hands shielding their eyes from the light. It was ripped from a scifi movie or something then the th! ing slowly drifted on past. Kinda a smooth oozing kinda glide. Just perfect and smooth my friend said it had to be a plane or chopper from the army in stelth mode . Thats what he thinks. He realy never said any more about it. I told him stelth meant that it was not seen on radar. And a stelth bomber couldnt hover. A choper would put off a hell of a lot of wind. But because he didnt believe in ufos it had to be some type of military craft. What do you think??? I have seen other things but this is the clearest and i know it wasnt a dream this time.
