It was the day after my 21st Birthday. My girlfriend, best friend, and I were sitting around a fire outside of a cabin I rented in Turner bay Idaho
for the week of my birthday. My girlfriend and I had been staying there for about 5 days prior to the incident with no strange observations, but the
day prior to the encounter, we had a strange feeling we shouldn't be there that night.
We went back into town and stayed the night at my mothers house for the evening. It ended up that we didn't have a ride back to the cabin that night
anyways, because we were without a vehicle and nobody was willing to take us all the way out there. On the night of May 24th 2011 we were just hanging
out, drinking a little bit and enjoying the time away from work and the city.
I remember the exact time that I saw the craft because at the moment it flashed over the mountain, my girlfriends phone sent a picture message that
she had sent to my best friend and I about a week prior to that night. It was a picture of a small pink orb that she said she saw in the driveway one
day while I was at work. The message read, "I just saw this, IDK what it is. What do you think?" I was staring off into the distance and talking about
one of my friends cats when I saw a flash over the mountain. I instantly stopped talking and stared in awe at what I saw because it was a rather
bright flash that lit up what appeared to be a large portion of the sky.
They were both looking at me because I was talking, I remember them staring at me for a few seconds, waiting for me to finish my sentence, but I
completely lost what I was saying and told them what I had seen. I remember my girlfriend getting up and walking toward the driveway, which was
between myself and the object, to see if she could get a better look at what I saw. There was no longer a light in the sky, but she proceeded to stand
there and look anyways.
Then she asked me to come over there, I got up and walked over to her. She pointed out a couple of lights in the woods that appeared to be some porch
lights of a house down the hill through the trees. It was really hard to see them, because they weren't very bright and they didn't appear to be
moving. So we stood there and squinted into the woods to look for some form of detectable movement. After a minute or two, it became apparent that
they were indeed moving, ever so slightly.
I remember telling her that I saw movement. We then went over the theories of what it could be. Some of the suggestions included someone walking
through the woods looking for their dog, someone on the road taking a walk, possibly some people that I had invited to my birthday party (even though
they were a day late and had no clue as to the location of the cabin we were at). We pondered on it for some time and kept doubting our suggestions.
About 10 more minutes went by as we were discussing what they could be, and then I saw some more of them. Two were off more to the left and appeared
to be pretty spread out (about 30 or 40 feet from each other) but appeared close together. I then looked around the woods surrounding us to see if
there were more on top of the ones we were already seeing.
I saw another one off to the right of the 4 of them, It appeared to be a lot closer to where we had our fire and was quite a ways off from the rest of
them. Then I heard a stick snap approximately 50 feet from the fire over by where my friend had parked his car. At this point I was extremely curious
to see what they were and told my girlfriend that I was going to go down there and check it out whether or not they wanted to come with me. I waited a
moment and had no reply, so I barreled off into the woods, down the hill, and didn't even bother to look and see if they were following me. I was
equipped with a glow-stick/flashlight that I had purchased at Wal-mart, the the knife that I always carried on my belt. I turned on the light and
literally plowed through the brush and into the darkness to get a closer look.
This was completely out of the norm for me, as it was around midnight and we were out in the middle of nowhere. Normally I have a pretty strong fear
of what might be lurking in the woods at night and would not have gone down there, especially by myself, with limited light, and a small pocket knife.
But I proceeded to do so anyways. As I was stumbling down the hill I could begin to make out some more defined lights. There were clear classic shaped
alien heads, only they were outlined in a plasma blue color. their eyes were almond shaped and I could only see them because they too were the plasma
blue color. I have never seen such a blue color in my life. It was penetrating in the darkness and it didn't light up anything around the beings.
From what appeared to be their hands there were a couple of different lights being emitted. One of which reminded me of a laser, but was more broad
and shone sort of like a flashlight. I remember this light being pointed in my direction a couple of times and I could see it more brightly but again
it didn't light up anything in the surrounding area. There was also a greenish light the seemed like some sort of flashlight, which also didn't appear
to light anything up in the surrounding area. There was one being in particular that I was going after and could see that it was less than 60 or 70
feet from me. The decent into the woods was steep and it was hard to tell where exactly these lights were coming from.
I came to a spot about 30 feet down where I could see this face shape extremely clear. I stopped and looked at it. It was looking back at me or so it
seemed. So I began to call out to it. I remember my words being something along the line of, "It's OK, I'm not hear to hurt you, I just want to see
what you are." I remember saying at one point, "We come in peace." Completely honestly and not with any sense of humor, only to hear my girlfriend and
friend laughing at the comment from where I left them. The being was approaching me slowly at this point, it's head swaying back and forth in the
darkness similar to the way a bird walks.
It came a little bit closer and hid behind a tree. I watched as it poked it's head out slowly on one side and then went back behind the tree, just to
poke it's head out on the other side. I kept expecting some form of telepathic communication from the being but felt nothing other than the shared
curiosity that I had for it. I walked down further and approached what looked like a small stream running through the woods after about 50 feet of
down hill from the road I started on. I stepped through the brush into the stream (but didn't get wet at all) and heard what sounded like an elk,
maybe 6 feet off to my left. Under normal circumstances this would have scared the living daylights out of me in pitch black, but I felt absolutely no
fear, only curiosity and an urgency to reach the being I was chasing after.
The hill went right back up on the other side, and I came to the conclusion that the being was within 20 feet of me at that point but could no longer
see this specific one. In the near distance I could still see the other lights that looked like some kind of a search party looking for a lost child
in the dark. There were no sounds of footsteps that I could make out, and the air had an eery silence to it. I came up the hill to the spot that I
believed the being was just standing in and looked around only to see Nothing! I couldn't believe it.
