Duration:25 minutes
A glowing white ball of light moving from side-to-side for 25 min.s behind light-colored night clouds.

At about 3:30 a.m.( quite early) in the morning on Sunday, August 14th, 2016, I drove out into the suburbs to a dark field in the countryside to try & observe what I thought might be the last opportunity to catch a glimpse of the last meteorites of the recent "Perseid Meteor Shower."

As I drove to the spot were I wanted to stop, I looked up towards the light-colored night clouds & immediately noticed what I "logically" thought -might- be someone from the ground using a searchlight machine to shine into the clouds in order to attract viewers to something they were advertising.

As I stopped my car & my eyes got a chance to both adjusted to the darkness & focus more sharply, I saw that what I saw was actually seeing was a glowing white ball of light moving slowly & rhythmically from side-to-side behind the slightly translucent, white, night clouds. It consistently took about 7 seconds for the glowing ball to reach each side (i.e., first the left ! side & then the right).

Needless to say, I was totally shocked to see such a phenomenon, as there was -no- beam nor column of light -beneath- the ball, as you would expect if it indeed were (what I originally suspected it was)__ someone using a searchlight from the ground to advertise something.

As I watched this glowing white ball for about 25 minutes, it became unquestionably clear that it was -not- a searchlight & not controlled by any human being. It seemed to be some kind of self-driven, "ionized," glowing ball that was energized,& that moved with a consistent timing & in a consistent way.

As the translucent light-colored night clouds began to gradually fade away, so did the mysterious, moving, glowing ball of light.

By the way, there were no "Perseid" meterorites for me to see that night_ although I witnessed something else instead that was even more amazing to me.
