Flashing Lights

Flashing Lights
UFO / Stock Photo

Around 8:00 on December 5, 2008, I was sitting at my bedroom window when all of a sudden, flashing lights suddenly appeared on the ground in front of our house. There was no sound at all. It made its way across the yard and I had my husband come look. It climbed up our picnic shelter and on to the roof.

Whatever this was it slowly drifted north and we watched it till it was out of sight. We were so entranced with watching this we forgot all about our video camera. Two other people we know saw this but were afraid to say anything because they thought people wouldn’t believe them. Has anyone else seen this?

  1. I can’t say that I have personally witnessed anything that I would describe as similar to your encounter, but I wonder if perhaps this was an example of what we now know as ball lightning.
