Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was round, silverish, and had slowly blinking green/blue lights around the perimeter. The bottom was relatively flat. the top sloped up to a "dome-like cockpit" with windows. The object made a whirring noise similar to a quieter turbine engine.
Size of Object(s)
If I framed the object between my left and right hands, my hands would be about 3 feet apart.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
I estimate that the object was 150-200 feet in the air directly above me.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was a flat, isolated stretch of rural Tennessee highway. The area was primary soybean and cotton fields. There were no other cars in either direction.
Full Description & Details
We were the only car on a long stretch of rural highway between Paris and McKenzie, Tennessee. It was a Sunday night and my roommate and I were returning to college. We were talking and listening to the radio. Suddenly, we saw streaks of light coming from the top of our windshield. There was no noise. From inside the car, we could not see the source of the light.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. The closeness of the object made it very easy to see. The most startling thing was the extreme speed it reached within 1-2 seconds and the 90 degree turn it made without any loss of velocity.
I am the CEO of four companies, post-graduate education, married and the father of four children.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Since a child, I was always interested in science fiction comic books and movies. I was always very open minded to the possibility of UFO and alien existence. After the sighting, I was even more convinced.
The closeness of the experience erased any and all doubt in mind.......this was definitely a UFO........and NOT a conventional (then or now) aircraft.
