Weather Conditions: Clear

Description: I was simply driving around the fields of my house (I saw a corn strewn by my mailbox, wanted to see if someone was raiding fields... yeah I know, real boring life).

Anyways, when I arrived at the fields I first saw a strange glowing object kinda swinging back and forth in the sky like a ball would on a string-- not like any aircraft I am familiar with, it was pretty much soundless as well. I got out of my car thinking "this has got to be a UFO" so I just started snapping pictures of it, but those pictures proved to be blurry and crappy. However, not too long afterwards, two others shown up and they seemed to be hovering around me... probably because I was waving around and flashing lights looking like a doofus (albeit, probably an entertaining one). This went on for hours and as a side note I think they scanned me with something, it felt similar to an MRI, except there was kinda a subtle vibrating involved. After all this, my brother discovered that my nose was bleeding, and that coagulated blood was all about my nose which led me to believe that it had something to do with that MRI-like thing that occured.

Anyways, this lasted until about dawn, when two of the three (it could of been four with how quickly they whizzed around) one remained and was extremely clear and visible against the dawn's skyline. It remained east of me as I approached it in my car, but it maintained the same distance; only moving to the left or the right to keep in view between trees which led me to believe it was watching me. I followed it to a marsh which I never found before and as I remarked the strangeness of me, a country bumkin, unaware of a marsh so close to home. Immediately after remarking the strangeness of this I looked up and it was already gone. (I later found that almost all of the trees in the marsh-area, one to three feet from the ground and facing westward were and still should be, scorched.)

I know, not very impressive, seems like this kinda stuff happens all over, especially around where I live (I saw some strange lights in my woods not a few minutes ago which reminded me to finally post about this somewhere). So let's hope no one thinks I'm crazy or something for posting this, that would be a bummer.
