Message: One Friday morning in January of 2008 my children and I were waiting on the bus. I was somewhere between 6:35 and 6:45 in the am. We saw a bright light over the tree tops on the horizon. This light was in the middle of the sunrise. At first I thought it was the sun reflecting off of an airplane. However, I noticed that the light was getting brighter and bigger but it was not moving. It was situated directly between two treetops, so it was easy to tell that it was stationary. I thought maybe it was getting closer by just coming straight towards us.
This light was very far away from us. Probably as far as a jet flying in the sky would be. If it were a jet it would have been so far away that we would not have heard it. Then the light slowly started moving to the left and got dimmer. I told my kids that it was just an airplane and now the sun is not reflecting off of it anymore and its changing course. Then all of a sudden it took off quickly to the right and disappeared behind one of the clouds that was in the sunrise. No plane goes that fast at the distance we were from it.
