Characteristics: Lights on object, Emitted beams

Beam of light follows me walking, moves high into trees on cliffside, seems to swivel as it fades out.

After being shaken up by a previous event with Orion's missing stars earlier that evening, was walking into the village on a desolate road at the base of a very steep cliff. A very bright beam of light shone on me from behind, and thinking it was a car coming, moved to the side. But a car didn't pass me.

I thought nothing of it since I had passed a house not far back (opposite the cliff) and maybe the car had stopped there (didn't look back). A minute later again a light from behind, throwing my shadow directly in front of me, and again moved the side so a car could pass, the light went out and no car passed.

Another minute or so later it happens again and I noticed my shadow moving in an odd way, turned around to see what was going on and saw a bright light, maybe twice the apparent size of a full moon in the treetops high up on the cliff. Just as I looked at the light it went off, fading out and seeming to turn as it did so. I stood there puzzling on what was going on, knowing that there were no trails on this cliffside.

I continued on my way another few yards and the light came on again. It did seem to be a beam of light, shining directly at me, since it only illuminated the area right around me. And just as before, when I looked up at the light, it faded out and seemed to turn as it did so. I saw some diagonal movement of the light before and during it's fading.

I continued into Pana for a much needed beer, but unable to tell anyone for several days of the events of that evening.

Years later saw two men on an afternoon talk show telling of there experience while in a small boat on a lake at night. Their description of the light, turning or swiveling as it faded out, seems almost identical to my event.

Also read in a book about a couple hiking an area well known to them after dark, and seeing a similar light shining at them from across a valley, moving through the treetops on a cliffside too steep for any trails.
