Staying up late is sometimes a part of being a student! Right before going to sleep, after spending several hours of reading, I often turn out the lights in my apartment and look out toward the woods bordering our property from my living room window. Something, a flash of light or pinpoint of light with motion caught my eye. Looking due North I saw a brilliant white light about a dime in circumfurance rise up from behind the tree line, stand stock still for perhaps 30 seconds, and then begin moving forward on a direct line apparently meant to intersect and pass over our apartment building. Being stunned and slightly incredulous, I just sat there staring as it moved very, very slowly directly on a straight line probably a couple of hundred feet in altitude. I saw it move directly overhead and pass from view. I llstened very intently, turning off my floor fan as soon as I knew it was on the move! Its light was intense, white, unwavering, and constant. There was absolutely no sound, even after it passed overhead. I continued to stand watch at the window another 10 or 15 minutes trying to clarify, for my own benefit, what I had just witnessed. It definitely was not a plane, blimp, ultra-lite craft, heliocopter, or any other aerial craft I have ever seen, since its motion was more like floating than flying. This is the clearest view, yet of what I have been seeing in the skies in this area since sometime in the Fall last year. Did anyone else see this, is my first question? I am a rational, responsible male, having held several government jobs requiring security clearances! Thank YOU!
