On July 25, 2005 around 10pm, I saw the most beautiful light fly across and above me. Every evening just about the same time I walk my dog. But this time I saw something that I never seen before and I still can't explain what it could of being.
I noticed a very bright light reflecting all around me. I automatically looked up to see what it was. I didn't get to see how it started it. All I know is that it was nice and dark and out of no where everything got really bright. It started flying from the left side to the right on a straight line. Never flew up or down, never changed direction. This didn't look at all like a falling star. This light was very close to me, I would say about 1 and half to two telephone poles tall. From this distance it looked to be the size of a basketball or a little bigger.
The only thing I can describe it to is a ball of fire flying super fast. But, the light that it was emitting didn't look like fire at all. Picture a basketball on fire flying to one direction at a high speed, the flames thickly trailing behind. But instead of being fire it was all light. It got brighter and brighter as it picked up speed till it disappeared with no trails or sound.
The color in the center was so bright it looked almost white. The closer it got to the surface the more yellow it looked; the actual surface was a bright electric blue. The light was leaving a thick trail, as it got to the end it was small yellow sparks. It flew about 150 to 200 feet, when it disappeared. This happened in about a minute with no sound what so ever.
I made a drawing to help you understand what I'm talking about, hope it help.
