A rural road, no street lights or houses, high elevation, ridge between N.H. and Maine. Just going for a ride one evening when we noticed a very bright light approching us from the east, we were traveling north. It got so bright that we stopped the truck, shut off the engine and got out to watch. We saw a triangular thing with a bright headlight and red lights round the edges. It was so very close to us and it had no noise what so ever. It stayed above us for about 15 seconds and then with amazing speed, still silent, was gone in maybe 3 seconds. My only thoughts were "I'm never going to see my children again." I was scared.My husband and my friend didn't report it because we were afraid of ridicule. Who would believe such a crazy story? On thursday night Art Bell replayed a tape of a man who had wittnesed almost the same thing in Phoenix 2 years ago. I thought you might be interested to know this sort of thing happens in rural New England too.
