I was camping, with sleeping bag only, behind a burm in a grass-less construction lot. It was about a quarter mile square. Mall to the south, treeline
to the north, townhouses to the east and the highway to the west. Airport WNW. I was told later that there is a military base of some kind near
While camping out in an empty dirt lot behind the box stores, I noticed what thought was a plane or planet (too low to be a star), blue-white. It
began blinking/flashing noticed several other blinking/flashing objects low in the night sky as well. There is an airport in Bozeman so figured it
was a few airplanes, but kept looking anyway. This went on for some time, I'm guessing 15 minutes.
Suddenly one of these "planes" began to move through sky at will, whimsically even--gaining losing elevation, making impossibly sharp turns. The
flashing became frenetic. Then other two flashing objects began doing same. They behaved like this for about 30 minutes. They disappeared searched
sky but they were nowhere to be found
After an hour searching sky my heart slowed down and I decided to turn over go to sleep. 3 "meteors" streaked from sky to ground behind some
new townhouses, one-at-a-time in short intervals. "Okay," I said to myself, I'm awake again. I kept watching the townhouses. In a few minutes I
noticed movement around the townhouses and 20 feet above townhouses, two unrecognizable shapes (because they were dark against a night blue sky)
moving silently in a circular fashion. Gradually they began to emit light began to see them clearly. My neck hair was standing on end.
They were two, sometimes three playfully eminating, green, misty, dancing globes above aforementioned townhouses almost cracked a smile watched
dancing lights for an hour. In retrospect, think this was a diversion some kind.
That was it for that night. The next night I camped in the same place (crazy right?). I was a little scared but at this point I wanted to know what
was going on. Once again I watched the lights dance above the townhouses. They did this for quite some time.
Suddenly a room in townhouse was brightly illuminated for a fraction a second, as if someone had a flash, then another, in sequence--as if someone
was going room-to-room. But quicker than a human could run to each room. I wondered if there was anyone living there and hoped they were alright.
There were cars parked out front, but no sign of human activity. I wondered if this was some kind of signal. I was afraid.
It took me a while to calm down but, I turned over once again and tried to sleep. I looked out toward the treeline. Trees relax me. A red light amidst
the trees turned on at ground level. I figured it was the brake lights of a car. The light slowly and silently rose 15 feet into the air paused and
began moving toward the highway, dispelling that thought. "Okay, it's a helicopter far away, it's just further away than I think it is" I told
myself. I kept listening for rotor wash. I heard none and under close observation I could tell it was in the stand of trees. By the time it reached
the edge of the stand of trees. I was on my feet, putting my shoes on, I was really scared and wasn't sticking around for this.
It hovered there momentarily. Then a white light seemed to turn on, but I realized that this object had simply begun to rotate. It kept rotating
slowly and began a slow pass of the field along the highway edge--gliding like a puck on ice. I knew it was a triangle because I could see it's
bottom now. It had 3 lights, 2 white-ish and one red. Before I could collect my things it was directly over my head not more than 20 feet in the air.
Slowly spinning and swinging it's course around me then off in the direction of the town houses.
That's when I ran. I ran as hard as I could in the opposite direction and hitch hiked out of there.
