About a block from home, i observed two lights turning on (one yellow and one green) one above another at about the height of a nearby telephone pole that had a transformer on it. it startled me because it was in a field near the road i was on. some trees were between me and the object, the trees had no leaves, it was fall. there were no street lights in the area so i could not make out a shape or color for the object that had lights. my best recollection is that it was big and powerful because the environment was eerily still and the object had a low sounding hum as it ascended. i knew it was taking off because i watched the lights rising slowly at first. then it ascended so fast i lost sight of it. when it was out of sight i drove home. when i arrived home my older teen daughter met me at the door and told me there was something wrong with the electricity. i noticed all the lights were dim. i called the electric company and they told me it was a brown out that just occurred because a transformer 'blew' in my neighborhood. i asked if they knew how it happened and they stated it was rare but it seemed to have a power surge. i believe the object provided that surge because of the hum and eerie resonance and being so close to the pole with the transformer. this incident was not reported to anyone because of fear and humiliation. i was the head of the financial department of a multi million dollar government agency.
