Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Extremely bright light hanging motionless 1000 ft up.

As I was on my way to the store, driving on my back road, about half mile from my house, I was stunned to see a huge yellowish white gleaming light hanging in the sky about 800 to 100 feet up. I said to myself, 'what the hell is that?'

I continued slowly driving, trying to see if the light/object moved at all, but it did not. No sound was heard and no other smaller lights were visible on the 'craft.' It reminded my of the usual artist conception of the star of Bethlehem, as depicted on Christmas cards.

I lost sight of it behind the trees on my left, as I drove on. I wanted to get to a large farm up the road that offered a clear view of the sky. When I got there, about 3 minutes later, I could see no light at all anywhere. Way off, I could see a stationary light in the sky, but it could have been light from a plane.

Driving back from the store, I continued to scan the night sky, which was mostly clear with stars and a moon just starting to rise. More than a f! ew cars were out as it was a nice night and lots of tourists in this part of southern Rhode Island are out and about. So, someone else had to see this. Whether the light/craft moved on or just disappeared, I don't know. I will continue scanning the sky tonight to see if anything comes back. This area where I live (Perryville section of South Kingstown) continues to be a 'hot spot' for UFOs.

A young man I spoke to recently, who is a native of the area, told me that UFOs have often been seen at a secluded area nearby where there are a group of ponds and is very private...inaccessible to the public.
