Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Perfectly Round... I took pictures of it and when zoomed in it looks like a perfectly round sphere of light- almost as if it was made to look like a star
Size of Object(s)
no idea... im not sure enough of its distance to make an educated assumption... From where i was it looked slightly larget than the brightest star in the sky
Description of Area / Surroundings
very rural area... middle of the woods. When i looked at a map of the suspected area below where the light seemed to be hovering it was straight woods... couple roads further east but for a solid 500 ft past the river it was just woods.
Full Description & Details
Tonight I saw strange lights in the sky. July 2nd, starting about 3a.m I was outside with my sister. It was a starry night so she and I were watching the stars. I live over a lake, up on a hill, and across the lake is another hill, the lake being in a sort of valley. Directly above the stars are clear, and it was beautiful, but there were clouds in the skyâ€¦ there was a ring of clouded-ness all around the horizon blocking any stars for the entirety of the horizon. I spotted a bright light- directly across the lake, over Bridgewaterâ€¦ which was strange, because no other stars could penetrate the cloud cover. We watched it, it appeared to be moving, but that could have just been us. We looked around and saw other, much dimmer lights floating about, but nothing even close to this light- even the brightest stars in the sky didnâ€™t compare- and this light was placed somewhere where no star could be seen.. We heard sirens off in Bridgewater, than wolves howling, which was haunting but was most likely irrelevant- interesting information nonetheless. Than we see a red light- what appears to be a plane soon following the sirens. We heard it- I was almost sure it was a plane, it flew right up to the light, flew by it, then turned around and looped backâ€¦ nothing else interesting. For the remainder of the following hour we just saw the light vanish from view and reappear, an effect that at first was interpreted as â€œthe lights of the craftâ€ turning on and off.. but then were seen more realistically as clouds moving in and out from in front of the light.. Pertinent information nonetheless- this, to me, shows that this indeed was a hovering object- I took pictures with a fairly decent camera with a good zoom, and the best pictures I can get reveal a perfect circle of light, almost as if the object was intended to look like a star in the night sky. Around 4a.m we lost interest after not seeing it for quite a few minutes and began to walk back up my driveway, halfway up it returns! Now much higher than before (or much closer to our location).. We watched it for another ten or so minutes and it certainly moved a bit... Just enough to show that it was in fact something intelligent. It never moved drastically (except for when it appeared in a different location) only hovered over a certain point. In this particular event the evidence is not in the event itself, but the small trivialities that prove that this was not something that should be floating around at 3:33a.am, but something I do not understand, and I seek to do just that, understand this strange and intriguing event.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
it could be described as some celestial object, but my gut is telling me its not. I gave all the evidence and tried to avoid my opinion as much as possible in this description. THe slight movement of the light along with the "cloudy horizon" effect is telling me this was nothing within the constraints of "normal"

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
i believe there are things out there i as an individual do not understand, so i would like to share what evidence i have with others in order to avoid any potential bias.
