Probe Flourescent Bulb Sized Object

I got up in the middle of the night and smoked a cigarette while looking out of the kitchen windnow. There were no lights on in surrounding houses.

In the small valley where my dad's house was located, I saw a light come over the hill. This light proceeded in an oblong route - only stopping at the top of large pine trees periodically. When at top of the pine trees, it would turn off and on about every 3-4 seconds.

At this time I awoke my mother to see this thing. I passed in front of the windowabout five (5) feet away. At this time , I observed that it was about four feet long - and about the size of a flourescent light bulb.

Behind the object it appeared to give off an exhaust of light. The object was traveling about 5 mph. Although the light appeared intense, it didn't seem to illuminate objects it passed.

I've wondered all these years what his was. . .a probe. .. ? I'd appreciate hearing if any other reports have encountered such an object.
