Sue -

Thanks for responding to my questions. The reason I asked them
was not only to satisfy my curiosity, but also to ensure that I
could give you as good an answer as possible.

The only apparent mundane cause would be a helicopter, such
as a Hughes, or perhaps one of the smaller Bells. However, it
seems you were in sufficiently close proximity that you would
have had notable effects from the rotor wash, no matter how
"stealthified" the helicopter was.

From a UFO perspective, there is a class of reports which fit
your description. Richard Hall has dubbed this class of reports
as "Dyad". I independently discovered this classification, and
have been maintaining those cases I find in my correlated catalog


You may wish to have a look at this.

The only case which seems to describe a large "hooded" control
panel with the sort of space next to the pilot which you describe
would be the Cowichan case, at


I have not yet uploaded a drawing of that object, though I
have one, courtesy of Hilary Evans.

Most Dyad objects show strong rim lighting. Your observation
of a single light would not fit that part of the pattern.

Dyad's have been involved in reports classified under my
behavioral system as Spy, Drop-In, and Roadblock.

I hope this helps.
