it was like they knew i was watching them.

Well I was on the porch smoking a cigarette looking at the stars, I was looking at a mountain side which was a big black silhouette against the night sky and stars, when I noticed one what I thought was a star blinking. The elevation I can only guess but over 10,000 feet.

Then as I watched it, it started to descend in a straight line. It stopped at the top of the mountainous ridgeline. This whole time it appears as one white light. Then it began to I don’t know how else to put it, but it began to traverse the ridgeline following it topographically if that makes sense. I was amazed.

I have served in the US Forrest Service as a firefighter and I have seen mountains and ridgelines all up and down California, the only thing I have seen is a D-9 CATAPILLAR that can literally roll up and over a mountain. And I know this wasn’t that, you can hear a CAT, this thing was silent.

So anyway it was on the ridgeline and it was moving closer. I went inside my cabin and woke a camping buddy, I brought him out to the porch and asked him, ‘you see that?’ what is it man? He said, ‘I don’t know’. Then when it stopped on the ridgeline, in a direct straight line from where we were standing I got scared and so did my buddy, when it turned it presented two bright lights like a car. But there were no roads and no cars that I ever seen that could possibly be where this thing was. Then it started to descend the mountain side. Smooth, slow, and silent.

My Buddy ran inside the cabin and got in bed. I had to see how far it would come so I waited outside and watched it. Well, it came all the way down to the corner of the block which was around 30 feet from where I was standing.

I couldn’t see a shape of a craft because the lights were so bright, then the two main lights split, like the Indian GOD with the many arms lights came out 3 on each side. So from two lights it split into six lights. That really scared me so I went back into the cabin and I told my buddy, ‘hey bro that ((word deleted)) thing is out there, it’s coming. So I held the door closed from the inside, like I barred it with my boot and shoulder. Looking out the window I saw it pass but the lights were so bright, when I tried to see the craft as it passed me all I could see was a black void. Then it floated off into the trees executing a quick right then a left turn and it took off into the sky at a low angle and it was gone.
