Bright lights

It was late and my parents were out so us kids snuck out to the play ground area.

We were on the playground structure when a low bright light few over. Followed by another a second or two then followed by a small red light. It was so bright that lit up the whole playground as if it was daylight. There was no sound only a feeling of presence.

Maybe a minute or so later we heard about two jets fly over but could not see them. At the time we dismiss the incident as secret test that were being conducted at the local Air Force base near by.

It wasn’t until Close Encounters of the Third Kind was released that I realized it was more then test.
