Sighting Details

I was out on the lake with my husband and a two other couples celebrating a friends birthday. we were about 2 miles out on the lake, just off of Montrose at about 10pm. we were enjoying ourselves when i happen to look up and saw what looked like a giant bat, and not like a fox bat (which i looked up and saw was the biggest bat). this bat was as tall as my husband who is 6’4 or even bigger. it was solid black with eyes that seem to reflect the moonlight. this bat was blacker than the surrounding night sky and was perfectly silhouetted against the moonlit sky. this bat circled the boat three times in complete silence before heading off towards Montrose. it quickly blended into the night sky and was gone in seconds. about five minutes after seeing this bat we saw a bright green object traveling north to south at the horizon. it was not a plane as it was brilliant green and was moving slowly across the horizon. if i had to estimate, it was about 2 miles from our position. after the object was out of sight, we sat there looking around in stunned silence. i began feeling this overwhelming sensation of dread and told my husband that i felt that it was prudent that we get off the water as quickly as possible. i tried to get a picture of the thing as it circled our boat, but all i got was black.
