So let me share with you all a story of when I was fifteen, living in the Upper Cascade region of Washington, staying in my Grandfather's summer
Well every summer, I'd spend time at my Grandfather's cottage up near Mt. Baker. We'd always watch the stars when the nights were clear just my
grandfather and I, it always seemed to be a bonding experience. There was something about my grandfather that I could never pin down, he seemed to
give off a sort of assurance of the world around him, like he knew what was going on and wasn't worried. He was a great man as I remember it now,
always smiled, looked to the brighter side of things, never took life for granted, laughed as much as he could.
But to get to the point of the story. There was a ledge we used to camp out at when the time for watching stars was right, we'd set up our telescopes
and just start looking at constellations (I always enjoyed looking at Tauras, with the Plaeides Cluster) and then Orion. Then my grandfather startled
me one night when I was looking through the telescope. I remember him saying "My grandson, would you like to see something beautiful? You may never
get this change again!". I took him up on his offer as I didn't know what it was..
To my suprise, at around 11:30 p.m. at night, it seemed like all quieted away and a series of three beautiful blue luminous lights came out from the
brush down below (this was about a good 4,000 feet away). I didn't know at the time what to think of it. I just watch the lights ascend into the
sky, hover towards us for a couple of seconds, and then take off towards the north. Before they dissappeared into the sky, they displaying a light
show of white/blue/green lights as they all flew around in a circle.. and with that then dissappearing...
I'll never forget what I saw that day.. ever... :shk:
