Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 minutes
i saw a small green orb that flew as if by intelligence. it changed my life for ever.

during the night gathering around the camp fire, a large moon type sphere while on fire, raced accross the sky in a loud roar. we were ushered back to our cabin by the counselore. "do'nt look at it " he warned. at midnight we went to bed, but my friend stayed awake. at 1:30 am i noticed something in the distance coming down from the small mountain in the black of night and during a heavy rain i saw this light approach closer to my cabin. it was small and green. small about the size of a baseball.

bright florecent green, made no noise. it came directly to my cabin, up to the opened door and stopped as if by intellegent control. it paused for what seemed like 20 seconds then it proceeded to float into the room. floating over the other campers.

my friend was so scared that he covered his head with his blanket and didnt make a sound . i kept looking at it. i wanted to catch it it was flying low enough and slow enough for me to trick it into a large pickle jar. but as it was about to fly out the back window i yelled at it as load as i could it must have heard me cause it stopped and came to me in a very sneaky way. it slowly approached my face within an inch remaining on a trajectory that maintained a height just above my eye's.

it got closer and closer until it was 3 inche's from in front of my face, i got scared and covered my face with my blanket while shaking it to the ufo as i was avoiding contact with it. 8 seconds later i uncovered my eyes to see it fly out the back window. i covered my head again to avoid contact while i slept as we had no windows or doors. i went into a deep sleep within 10 seconds. i was changed by the next day.

i have never been the same since. everthing i have ever been taught meant nothing to me. but i realized i had aquired a new found wisdom and something alien about it.
