Drone like craft.I do not know what it was that I saw, it was very close to me, about 100ft away and at the tree line. It was late at night and I stepped out onto my 2nd floor deck that is outside of my bedroom to have a cigarette. I looked to my left and I saw some sort of craft flying just above the tree line..but the thing is, the craft was small I thought it might be some kind of drone or something. It was black and emitted a red beam. the best way I can describe the shape is that it looked like the "mother ship" on the movie "independence day". And the object was silent. I have seen other things before at other times, and experienced missing time before with a group of about 25 other people. ..This was a long time ago. But I have occasionally seen strange things since then.
