Location: Fairfield, IA, USA


A bright red beam of light caught my eye and disappeared quickly as I turned to watch it.

I was sleeping in my van 5 miles southeast of Fairfield, Iowa the first Saturday of October, 2000. IN the middle of the night, I awoke with the need to relieve myself and exited the van through the side sliding door. I was standing a few steps from the vehicle facing the rear and looking at the stars in a cloudless sky when I thought I detected a light moving to the right of the area at which I was looking. But when i turneed my attention there, I saw nothing. I turned to get back into the van when a brilliant, red beam flicked across the corner of my left eye into the front door. I turned around to see the beam disintegrating, but intact enought to trace it to its source-a light in the same placae I had seen movement before. Immediately upon the seeing the light, it quickly moved a short distance to the left horizontally and blinked out. I was struck by the brilliance and richness of the beam as there was something about its aualities that rendered a warm, pleasant feeling deep within. Unlike my first experience 34 years earlier, it took me a while to 'digest' the event before I could return to sleep.
