Duration: 45 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
pin point of light hovering, then speeding off and just disapearing.

I was walking alone down the street behind my parents home. It was cold outside, I beleive, I can't even remember when at all it hapened except it was dark. All the sudden I just looked up. I was already nervous beeing a female alone at night, though the towne was small. I looked up and there was this light in the sky a white light like a star, but different. I knew it was different, I just looked at it and felt like it was looking at me too. All of the sudden it took off. just so darn fast, from still to speed of light, w/ in what looked like at the distance it was to be an inch or two it disapeared. Poofed, vanished. I had a simaler experience years later, it was in 03' maybe, but this time it was in the country closer to Mattoon, which is 10 miles from Charleston. Anyway, there it is.
