Location: Mount Pleasant, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:~1 minute
Steady paced but slow-bobbing light, that takes shooting off into the night within seconds.

I was at my friend's house. We usually go out to the casino or out downtown, but we both decided to stay in. My friend and I were hanging out, when she remembered that she had leftover fireworks. We went outside to set them off. Some sparklers, some snakes, and some helicopter fireworks that go shooting up a little over 6 feet. We did the snakes and sparklers, ending with the helicoptors. The first one had went up on the roof, so we waited for it to fall back down. We lit off a few more and watched where each one went to make sure it didn't get stuck somewhere.

We got down to the last helicopter, and after it had fallen, we both turned away from the house and for some reason, we looked up. We froze there for what felt like 10 minutes. There was a light that was bobbing up and down, slowly moving in the sky. The bobbing motion was not too slow, but it wasn't very speedy. The bobbing lasted for a couple seconds until I asked my friend if she was seeing it, too. She said she saw it, and all of a sudden it shot right off.

We tried to follow it, but it just kind of disappeared into the darkness of the night. I felt a very heavy feeling, and we both started freaking out and went back inside.
