Shape: Light
Duration:4-5 minutes
Two lights in the sky over field; admitted beams/lights onto the ground.

Last night I was up in bed just reading a book for school, when a slight noise caught my attention. My senses are always on high at night since I have a bit of a phobia of the dark, but when I glanced out my bedroom window a saw a strange light in the distance; hovering over the large field thats across from my house. I was a bit confused and at first just wrote it off as some sort of helicopter or airplane. But as I got up from my bed to observe the light closer I have reason to believe that it wasn't. The light was way to close to the ground to be a airplane and fidgeted/moved way to abruptly to be a helicopter; wasn't hovering like I assumed a helicopter would (also no noises that sounds like a helicopter, it was silent). The light itself was kinda a yellow-orange with a red colored tint that fluctuated around the edges of the light. It paced in the air for a moment before it was joined by another matching light. They floated above the field moving about a! nd what looked to be lights shiny down from them onto the field (like floodlights!). They continued to move above the field before one of them either faded out of moved away (couldn't tell but it just started to get fainter) and then the other one just disappeared a few minutes after (just disappearing right of the back, not like the other one who faded). My dog, who had been sleeping downstairs, had been barking off and on contiunesly in the night. And at first I would have written this off, but considering how late she stayed up barking (much later then she usually does) I have reason that she might've been effected by these lights. Though I do have to admit that she is a bit senile, so I wouldn't take her actions at the upmost proof. I went to bed last night confused but woke up feeling normal. I WISHED I HAD TAKEN PICTURES DAMNIT.
