Further Description of Sighting: Myself and 4 other people decided to take a trip to an abandoned army base on Friday the 13th in hopes of seeing something ghostly, but we encountered something totally different than what we had ever expected!

We all were standing on a hill witch over looked the whole army base I had asked one of the people there what time it was due to the fact I only had a baby sitter for a certain amount of time. The time was 10:20pm.

All of a sudden we all felt the ground vibrate and could hear the sound of the vibration and the direction it was coming from(SOUTH) we all looked that way then out of nowhere this huge light that was VERY bright and blueish in color came and shined almost right in our faces hovering it did not move.

I just remember standing there in shock not being able to breath and frozen, weather I was frozen in shock of what I was experiencing or for what ever reason. I have no memory of how long I was frozen or how long the sighting lasted, but it was there beaming in our faces and then just disappeared with no trace of anything ever being there at all.

I do know as soon as it disappeared we all freaked out and ran down the hill and jumped the nearest fence to get out of the army base. When we had gotten over the fence I had asked what time it was again in worry that I had gone over the time limit that I had told the babysitter that I would return home.

It was 10:40 we had lost 20 minutes in time? That is the question we all have to this day, where did the time go and what happened while the 20 minutes went by?

I have told my story a few times since the experience, but I get crazy looks in the disbelief of my story so I just keep it to myself.
