Full Description & Details

I just talked to my father to tell me this story fresh again. He stated that him and one of his co-workers where heading to work early in the morning it was still dark out and they both saw a glowing circular light about the size of a beachball come over a hill from the 9 oclock position flying with the contours of the ground moving very very fast it flew in front of their truck and away to the 3 oclock position and up and over another hill out of sight just like that it was gone he said it happened in just a second. the main thing that stuck out to him was the speed and how it flew with the contour of the earth over small rises and such staying a steady height off the ground then approximately a week later there was a story in the courier journal our local newspaper (feb. 27 1993) about a police helicopter that had an encounter with a basketball sized object when the chopper gave chase the object shot 3 fireballs at them they banked away from said fireballs and when they circled back around it was gone. My father grew up in this area and used to roam the corn fields that the thing flew over and he said it had to have covered the distance of a couple of miles in just a couple of seconds.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

no way

This is just a conformation of something my father had suspected but never saw for himself, but when he saw it he was on his way to work and it was a total surprise.
