First, i am a veteran and worked on aircraft when in military, am not a nut case. this happened a couple of weeks ago. if it hadn't been an unusual event, i wouldn't have reported. this is what happened. everything happened in just a few seconds. it was late dusk. i couldn't see the object until i shined a flashlight up in the sky. it became visible, then faded or disappeared without moving in only a few seconds. i've seen ufo's before but never reported them. i've never seen one appear when you shined a flashlight on it, then faded sitting in 1 spot. it had many lights around the outside, and i could see 3 red bubble lights under it at 90 degrees. i think there was a 4th light, but was hidden behind a dark part of the cloud. i jokingly shined the flashlight up in the sky, because it was getting late dusk. i know, a dumb thing to do...Lol. it was sitting right there in plain sight when i shined the light on it, then faded out in only a few seconds. i estimate the object was approximately 300 feet above ground. it was right there in front of me. i could only see about 3/4 of it, as the heavier part of the cloud hid the remaining part of craft. the only reason i am reporting this, is because they may be sitting right under our noses, but a light exposes them at dusk. please keep this report to yourselves. i want no recognition, which could cause ridicule.I don't normally answer calls that i don't recognize, so if you call, you'll have to leave a call back number.
