Full Description & Details

On a winter night, while driving one of my friends home, bright lights caught my attention out of the passenger window. I told my friend that was driving to pull ahead to the end of the road. He cut the engine and coasted to the end of the road with the lights off. These lights came down at us from a few miles in the sky at about a 45 degree angle. As it approached it had bright multi-colored lights rotating around the middle. I would estimate it was 100 feet wide. It also had spot lights on the underside that slowly scanned beneath it. It hovered over some high power electrical lines that run behind the houses at the end of the road. I remember saying over and over "What the hell is that? What the hell is that?". The trees below were bending over from the down draft, they were 60 to 80 foot tall. There was no sound at all. We sat and watched this for about one or two minutes. Then I noticed that one of the spot lights rotated and shinned directly at us, this lasted a few seconds. I felt like it had realized that we were watching it. The craft then lifted directly straight up and accelerated at a 45 degree angle at a unbelievable rate of speed toward the South East. I never took my eye off of it. It was a small blinking light in a second or two. My friend started the car and tried to follow it, we jumped on the highway and drove on toward Lansing until we got by the Airport. The wierdest thing of all is that we never talked about it until at least a few weeks later we were sitting around and it came to me what had happened. I started to ask my friends if they remembered this encounter and they took turns describing it exactly as I remembered it. My hair stood on end has they described it to my other friends who were hanging out with us that day. I could tell that the guys who were not with us did not believe what we were saying is true.

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

Absolutely not from this planet!!

Witness Background

College graduate. I worked at the Kent County Airport for 2 years before returning to college.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

After the sighting I now know that UFOs exist. I can remember it like it happened yesterday, and nobody could ever convince me otherwise.
