Walking at night on our property to investigate light activity beyond the tree line. We stood still for several minutes looking skyward when we noticed a bright light just above the height of adult maple trees 30-40 foot traveling toward us. As the object grew closer it's light dimmed to the point of being off. We felt that we were being observed, but silent and not visible.The first time we experienced a similar event, it was around the month of October 2008. We woke up early about 3:00 am or 15:00 hrs. We went for a walk up our street on return a bright beam of light bore down on us, we both looked up into the light in disbelief but not frightened.Our area has alot of strange activities not reported.
