Description: I was walking home from the Golden Lake Country Club around 10 pm and I was about 14 or 15. It was quite warm so I didn't have a sweater. Suddenly, I was compelled to stop. It was as though the breeze had just stopped and the air seemed very still. I remember getting goosebumps. I was staring toward the west at the silouette of Mont Condor. We had local nicknames for each of the peaks of Mont Condor. King's was the highest and from there, an object of white light hovered over the treeline, and then shot off into the atmosphere with a notherly vector. The acceleration seemed instantaneous and the object blinked from sight.
I felt frightened and it took me a minute to regain control of my rationality. I do remember running from lightpost to lightpost in order to get home. The feeling has stayed with me all of these years.
I know I was witness to something either ethereal or otherworldly.
Color/Shape: White object, circular
Height & Speed: 1/2 mile away. 100 feet over the mountain. It reminded me of a shooting star... only falling up instead of down.
TV/Radio/Press: not that I am aware of.
