I have lived at my current address for more than 12 years and what I and my 5 year old daughter witnessed about a month ago still has us perplexed. My daughter and I were driving back to the house at roughly 9:30'ish in the evening. It was already pitch dark outside and had been for some time. To get an understanding of why this is so confusing, I'll need to briefly describe the street.
My street has a 3/4 mile, flat, unremarkable straightaway before making a sharp right and then continuing to switch back and forth as it meanders up and down the base of a mountain. On the left side of the straightaway, my neighbor has a cattle farm and there is over 60 acres of cow pastures. On the right side, there is a very old house on about 2 acres then on 20 +/- acres, there are 2 working chicken houses and a few black angus cattle and then a farmhouse. Directly next is another house on 5 +/- acres and lastly, one more house on roughly 2 +/- acres which turns with the sharp curvature of the road. I have 12 +/- acres at the end of the straightaway on the opposite side of the road from the last house on the right.
Prior to the construction of the second house and then subsequently the two chicken houses, there were no lights on my street. Let's face it, we don't get a lot of traffic and even less at night. Once the chicken houses were fully stocked and the Koch food trucks started coming in at 3 AM for to pick up or drop off chickens, a streetlight was erected. This light appears to be really bright since it is the only light on my lonely little country road.
On the night in question, my daughter and I turn onto our road and we can clearly see the road illuminated under the lone street light and there, walking in the middle of the road is a person. I can't tell if they were male or female but they had long hair, blue jeans and a tan colored shirt. I watched them take several steps, stop and turn toward the direction of my car, which was easing toward them at roughly 20 mph. Then poof, they were gone. I mean gone. Evaporated. Disintegrated. Gone. They didn't move left or right; we would've seen them. It was one minute there and one minute not. Had my 5 year old not seen it for herself secured in her booster seat in the middle of the back seat of my SUV, I would have dismissed the whole notion but she saw it and what she saw scared her in a way no small child should ever fear.
Needless to say, this momma floored it post haste and then carried my traumatized child at a full sprint into my house.
