The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
While sleeping in my hammock at a local camping ground, a (1) small ball of light, bowling ball size, extremely bright almost blinding, was over my left side as i slept. the intense light in my face, like someone was holding a flashing light inches from my face, woke me. at first i thought it was my son trying to wake me, but then only after getting my self situated and standing up, did i notice it wasnt him. i struggled to sit up, unzip the bug protector, put on my summer sandles and stand up. i had to do all of the the above with one hand blocking the intense light in my face and the other to get up. once i stood up the light, solid and round, had slowly begin moving back (south) and with a matter of about 3 seconds almost slowly went up and over a moutain of about 1,200 meters, which was about 1.5 kilometers away. the orb made no sound and became dimmer as i stood up. i was not scared per say, but a bit shocked at what i just saw. i had no intent of following it. i woke my boy in a tent about 10 feet away from me and moved into a small cabin where i locked both windows, door and didn’t sleep the rest of the night. my son was dazed as why we were moving into the cabin in the middle of the night, but didnt notice the orb.
