This sighting happened when I was 14. At the time I was living in simms, MT, and had a girlfriend that would sneek accross town and see me late at night. That night on her way over she told me that she had seen a UFO. I was almost sure that she was making it up or that she saw a plane. It was dark and about 11:30 at night and we were in the backyard of my house talking when she pointed to a field about a mile away. I looked over and I saw a white beam of light that was pointing straight down onto a field in the distance. At first i thought it was a helicopter, but then i realized that wahtever it was, it was not making any sound whatsoever. the "craft" sat there for a few short minutes and the light that was shinning down on the field suddenly dissapeared as if it were turned off like a light switch. I waited to hear something take off or noise after the light dissapeared but there was nothing.. it was just gone.

I was scared and there are only two thing that I believe that it could have been. The first was miltary craft, like the black secret helicopters that dont make any nose that government might have, or I saw a ufo. The Memory is still pretty clear and I believe that I had a ufo encounter that night.
