On january 4, 2013, i was driving home from my friend's house. it was a cold, clear winter evening; no cloud cover, just wide, empty sky. i was driving down white rock road in davis junction, illinois when i observed an oval, brightly glowing object in the sky. it was quite bright and prominently oval-like. similar to an unusual looking star. i stopped my vehicle in the middle of the road, unsure of what i was seeing. i observed it hover for a minute or so over a field, trying to understand what it was. i opened my windows and could hear no noise, despite being in the country and having no other sound source around me. as i continued watching, it grew larger, appearing to move closer to where i was parked. a strange wave of fear and disbelief came over me; i turned into our driveway, sped to the top, and tried calling my brother so he could see what i was seeing. he didn't answer. that's when the object began descending and moving rapidly towards my new location. it hovered directly in front of my line of sight overhead, i snapped a quick picture, and ran inside my house in terror. i have fantastic vision, was 100% sober, and have not experienced anything else since. i have seen what helicopters look like in the fields at night - this was not that. i honestly felt as though this thing was able to "watch" me and that i sensed i was "watching" it. thus its descent.
