Full Description & Details

Standing on cliff 500 ft above ocean staring looking at the horizone.( I am sorry for my poor spelling.) I saw a light out of the corner of my left eye turned my head and watched a glowing red object pass by my 100 ft below where I was standing following the coast line not going up or down. Speed at under 100mph.No noise no visable means of propulation. I followed it to rhe right for maybe 20 to 30 seconds.It appeared to be about 200ft out from shore line. I was on a camping trip with boy scouts. Felt a compulsion to leave the camp, and walk to the cliff. I was supposed to be puting up my tent and squaring away my gear. When watching the object my mind stoped. The next thing I knew I was looking streight over the ocean. I looked to my right and nothing was their. I felt confused. Went back to camp to find everybody looking at me. Camp leaders yelled at me asking where I had been. I told them and they replied that I had been missing for well over a hour. I looked at the camp everybody had already put up their tents. I could not understand what happened. On returning home I started having nightmears waking up finding I was covered in cold sweat screaming. I could not remember why. Just reciently my memory has a faint recolation of being chased up a spiral stair case by a reptilian figure. I am seceaming and my mind goes blank when I am caught. I am not a nut. Why am I telling this now? Because the dream now makes sence. I can put it all together, I was taken.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

This was a red glowing object traveling at the same altitude the whole time right past me. No noise no visable means op propultion. Not a meteror it stayed at the same altitude the whole time. Close enough and long enough for me to evaluate what it was. It seemed to be under some kind of control. Again it had a steady course altituse following the coast line.
