OKay. Here goes.
August of 2008. I was in my studio, which is a room I built in my unattached garage, so that I do not bother my family sleeping soundly in the house
at late hours, with my shenanigans and noises while I create.
At about 1:30 AM my dog began barking incessantly. I went outside to see what might be going on. She was at the end of the drive way, looking towards
the soy bean field across the road. I wandered down the driveway to look. I figured it could be a bunny or a possum. whatever. She barks at leaves
blowing across the yard at night, too. lol.
She was looking a bit skyward. I looked up and saw a moving light. She stopped barking once I saw it. The light was not much bigger than Venus,
however it was moving in a seemingly erractic motion. Sort of keeping with in an area of a quarter if you held it about 3 inches from your eye.
The light pulsed about every 2 seconds. It would be a reddish light, it would grow brighter and fade. Then it would turn white and grow brighter. Etc.
Back and forth between the two colors.
It was a clear night, no moon though, and I could see many other stars, planets and lights from jets. I wondered if it was just my eye jumping, so I
concentrated on stars. None of them jerked about or pulsed. Then I held myself very still and watched the sky in general and the stars remained
motionless, but the light continued to move about.
I can't tell how big the light source was. I am not sure, it being quite dark across the field where a tree line is, if the light was in front of the
tree line or a bit above it. However, it was quite low in the sky.
The light began to enlarge, or move closer to me and I became uneasy. It approached, I tihnk that was what it was doing, for a few seconds, maybe 10
or so, and then as my anxiety increased, it seemed to retreat from me back to what I guess was it's original position. I watched for a few more
minutes and then decided to tell my daughter about it who had been watching TV a bit earlier. I went inside buy she had gone to bed.
I went back outside and the light was gone. I looked around the sky and found it had moved, seemingly farther away and no longer southeast of me, but
now more in the direction of southwest.
I watched it for a few minutes more, lost interest and continued my art project.
A few days later I contacted MUFON via email. I received an email later than night from the regional director of MUFON based in Bowling Green, KY. He
asked follow up questions and I sent him my phone number. A few more days later he called me in the early evening and I reiterated all I had said in
the initial email and answered in his follow up email.
He informed me that MUFON had been receiving the same type of reports from the eastern and southern cental Kentucky regions for the last few weeks. He
had no answers for what it could be, but just that it was a common sight from those of us who happend to wander outside in the very early morning
Thats's it. I have never witnessed such an occurance since. I'd like to,and maybe the next time, not get so anxious and maybe something more would
develop from such a sighting.
The light was unlike anything I have ever experienced while gazing at the night sky or just glancing at it. It was nothing, I, and I emphasize,
IIIIIIIIII, have ever encountered or know about.
Who knows? Aliens, man-made technology, hallucination, um..........insect, some sort of natural occruance? I don't know, but I have never experienced
this before and I am really interested in how this "thing" reacted to my anxiety level. If this even happened at all outside my mind.
Edited to add: Oh, boy! I might get a star! That's good, yes?
I never had one that I know of.
Been spanked a couple times, though.
