I wasn't going to report this until I saw that someone else from this exact same city experienced something similar just two months ago. So, I decided to also write a report since there must obviously be something going on here that is unexplained and I would like answers.

Earlier this morning (Sunday Jan. 20th, 2008) at approximately 5:58 AM I decided to look out of my front door to see if the ground was covered with ice (we had a lot of rain last evening and freezing temperatures overnight), and as I was looking out the front door I noticed something completely strange to my left. It was floating above the tree line across from a field approximately 1/2 mile from my front door. The lights were pulsating from red to orange (similar to flames from a forest fire) as this thing or craft was slowly receding behind the tree line behing the open field.

It seemed to have three large lights from the side I was seeing. And judging from the neighbors house down the road and the distance this craft was from their home and ours, it had to be atleast the size 4 or 5 homes combined, possibly even larger. A truly amazing site and a camera was the last thing on my mind.

Anyway, I couldn't believe what I was seeing, so I went to wake my wife up to verify what I was seeing. She quickly awoke when I told her that she had to see something that was going to blow her mind. I was hoping this thing wouldn't be gone before we made it back to the front door. When we both got to the front door it was still there and was now half way down behind the tree line. My wife said " oh my God, what is that?". We both looked at it in awe as it descended behind the trees and seemed to have landed.

The area it seemed to have landed in is near a creek in a swampy area. In a place people wouldn't normally go or have good access to. All I could think is why would someone or something be landing there.

My wife and I stared in the direction for nearly an hour to see if it was going to fly away. She described it as being similar to the sun going down behind the trees due to the brightness it displayed and the red and orange colors, But this definitely wasn't the sun, it was only 5:58 AM and was in the north west during the dark of night. She was only able to see the top half of the object and the lights as it was already landing as I awoke her. We both couldn't believe what we had just seen. This definitely was like nothing I had ever seen, especially this close to our own home. I must mention that I am prior military (U.S. Army Veteran) and I am very observant and have an IQ of 138. This definitely didn't seem like any modern day aircraft that our military would have and even if it were, why would they land in the middle of the swampy creek area here at 5:58 AM on a Sunday morning? As far as the shape of the craft, it seemed to be an oval shape and had no sound at all as we stepped out of the front door to listen as it was landing. Another thing that was real odd was that this is in a suburban neighborhood with lots of yard animals and none of the dogs were barking at all and the air was dead silent.

As big as the object was and as bright as the lights were, we were expecting to at least hear the neighborhood dogs barking, but none were.

After waiting on the front porch of our home for close to an hour with blankets to keep warm, we finaly decided to go back into the house. We were hoping this craft would come back up from the wooded area and would show itself once again while leaving, but it never did. And no, I don't plan on going in that area of the woods and swamp to see it close up either. I will be keeping a guarded eye on that area for the next few nights and even months to see if anything else happens there.

All I can say about all this is that we're definitely not alone and these things are making themselves known. I'm just wondering why they aren't trying to communicate more clearly if they are superior life forces. It almost feels as though we are like the ants living in the ant farm and they just observe us when they want to. A little food for thought there.

Anyway, thanks for allowing me to vent about this here, because I surely can't tell me friends about this. I'm not sure how they would take it.
