There is a reason I haven't reported this, or my brother or father. Long story short, very short,considering all related material about our lives since that is so important. My brother, father and I used to visit our family's cabin in northern wisconsin every summer when my brother and I were young. One night after fishing late, we returned to the boathouse, unloaded, and sat on the dock as we did everynight. Sudennly, I looked at my dad and he was pointing at the mouth of the channel our dock sat on. I turned and looked... here was this bright light, but contained, like not a flashlight, or anything else, and there was no sound at all, just a light layer of fog that night about a foot above the water. It was a very beautiful night, with stars, fog, etc. unusual. very dark, but moonlight. What I remember is my dad pointing to this light and I've never seen that look on his face.I look and from my left (this is narrow opening to a bigger part of the channel, at the point) a very bright light moved slowly from the edge of the woods on one side to the middle over the water. moved so smoothly, yet not on the water, but gliding slightly above it. It stopped right in the middle, which gave it a perfect view of us starring at this, and then it turned colors. Thats when my dad's trying to scare us by making a drunk fishermans flashlight seem like a ghost, actually scared the shit right out of him. after it stopped it faded into an orange color, almost spinning orange and red, I always remember feeling like it was focusing on us or trying to communicate, then at deep red and much smaller it took off, light speed, i don't know, but left a trail of red behind it into the woods at the point. My dad swore to my grandma he was just fooling us, scaring us, but as I learned later she was very concerned, because she knew of it, and was very interested in what the gov't is hiding from us, and used to lecture me of such things on that very dock, as if one day i'd understand, thesame with my greatgrandmother, one day(with a grin) you'll know. There is much, much more, and know i do Know, and i want to share it. It wasn't until i started growing up, reading and searching, and suddenly an explosion of reports, abductions(including my mother's, even though she believes it was supernatural gift of God) well, it was. I realized all these things i thought were isolated to me and my family were really happening all over the earth, fireballs, "balls of light" what we saw.This is all real and while discovering what i had always known inside on paper from writers such as Zecharia Sitchen, Graham Hancock, Erich von daniken.THIS IS REAL AND I KNOW SOMETHING ELSE AND I'm ready to let the cat out. please contact, anyone. thanks.
