Two of my girlfriends and I were driving together late one evening during our senior year, around 10:30-ish or so. I lived way out in the sticks as
you'd say and we were on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere, farmland Wisconsin. I was in the back-seat, sitting in the middle chatting with my
girlfriends. We were really involved in our conversation, about whatever crap teen-aged girls gab about, and so we didn't really take much heed of
the light we saw way up the road in the distance. None of us even mentioned it at first as I think they, like me, assumed it was an on-coming car.
We hadn't seen any other cars on the road other than ourselves up until that point.
It was pitch-black outside and I don't remember there being any stars or moon or anything so it must have been cloudy, although it wasn't raining or
anything, and it wasn't winter. The terrain we were on was very flat, very open farmland. There were small-ish, thin trees at sparse intervals
along both sides of the road but other than that the land was clear. The road was totally straight, and flat like the terrain.
The light was a LONG way away at first, and we were traveling along at about 45 mph. Eventually I think we remarked that it was taking a long time
for the car up ahead and us to pass each other. We did notice the light was getting incrementally brighter, however. We were still gabbing and
totally not paying attention to the time, so I'm not sure how much time transpired before we thought something might be not ordinary.
The closer we got I kept waiting for the head-lights to become discernible (as in we would be able to make-out two lights) but it wasn't happening.
It just kept getting brighter and brighter. Just white, bright light. Then as we got closer we saw some red in there, kind of in the middle, but it
wasn't always there. Whatever it was it was directly in the middle of the road, and my mind started to try to assign identification, like going
through flashcards in my head: train? no, no tracks. tractor? no, there aren't two lights and I don't think they have red. police? no, no blue and
again no head-lights. If it's a vehicle, why aren't we passing each other? Why is it taking such a long time to get to it?
The driver then piped-up and asked, "Hey you guys what do you think that is?" and we started talking about it and came to the conclusion that it had
to be stationary, sitting on the road, whatever it was. And we're still driving toward it and it's getting closer, and BRIGHTER and brighter, and
now we're starting to get concerned.
None of us can see what is making the light. There is no structure we can see just blinding light, and the closer we get we realize the red light
appears to be very small and somewhat circling the white light at the middle. Well, as we couldn't discern any structure we assumed it was
circling. I guess in 2D it would look like a point of red light was streaking across the light over and over. We thought "circling" because it was
always going from right-to-left or clockwise if it was going in a circle. I'm not explaining it very well, I think.
Anyway, none of us were talking for a good 5 minutes as we drove toward it and just looked. I couldn't explain what it was, and I started to get
pretty nervous. I think I made a remark about this being a little too X-Files for my taste, and the driver agreed, although we didn't change course
yet. The other passenger in the front seat with the driver didn't comment. We were starting to get pretty damn close and it felt like only a minute
or so passed after that comment and I said, "Kris: turn around and lets get out of here this is freaking me out." She whipped it around and we
hi-tailed it out of there. We talked about it all the way back to town, and it definitely made an impression on us.
The really weird thing is the next day the other passenger, riding in the front seat with the driver had no recollection of the light at all.
The driver and I were totally stupefied by that. We were like, "HOW can you NOT remember that? We came all the way back to town because we didn't
want to get any closer." We hadn't been drinking or doing drugs, so I have no way of explaining how she could not remember that when two of us
I had another sighting of, something, one time but I don't feel like typing it all out right now lol. Perhaps I'll make another post at a later
