Family Was Traveling North From Lewiston to Havre.
The Sighting Began When They Passed Through Hays, Montana.

Date of Sighting: February 15, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9:20 PM MST
Location of Sighting: Began at Hays, Montana (See Map). Sighting Continued as They Drove North Towards Harlem, Montana.

Description: Listen to Clip of Interview With One of Witnesses (MP3)
The witness reported the sighting about 10 days after the sighting. She stated that the family was driving from Lewistown, Montana North to U.S. Highway 2 enroute to their home at Havre, Montana. At about 8:35 PM they began having problems with the head lights on their vehicle. The lights would go off for 10 to 15 seconds and then come back on. This cycle continued 3 or 4 times. They had never had problems with the lights on their vehicle before (and since). About 45 minutes later they noticed a huge light in the northeast sky. The light was flashing and was illuminating the "entire northeast sky." They continued their journey, but then stopped the vehicle to better view the light. The husband got out of the car. The wife (witness reporting sighting) stayed in the car as she "was terrified." The light then began "moving in clicks" (witness description). The light would stop, drop down (descend) some distance and then stop again. The light was moving south and eventually they lost sight of it. The light was so bright that the witnesses could not look at it. They later stopped at a cafe and inquired if anyone saw the light. No one had, but it wasn't known if any of the restaurant patrons had been outside at the time. They later saw the Blaine County Sheriff. The sheriff told them that many strange aerial sightings had been occurring in the Hays, Montana area.

Note: The witness was very sincere and I believe her story. She gave an accurate description of what he saw and certainly conveyed her fear of the experience. It is not known if the headlight problem was associated with the object or the phenomenon that the witnesses encountered. Given this description I have no idea what the witnesses sighted. Anyone who may have seen this light or knows someone who did is urged to file a report.
