Full Description & Details
I was riding my bike eastbound toward downtown Palm Springs, California just after dark. When I looked up, I saw a bright white round light which seemed to grow in size quickly, appearing to move eastbound in my direction. Strangely, the light seemed to evoke terror in me because I felt it might be some type of weapon or missile headed in my direction. I felt much relief when the bright light seemed to disappear in the mountains above Palm Springs, California.
