Full Description & Details

After coming back from a weekend fishing trip with my father I was sitting in my car at my fathers house waiting for my wife and kids to join me for the trip to our house. It was late in the afternoon in mid august and it was clear weather with plenty of daylight still. While I was sitting there I observed a bright light coming toward me on a parallel track with the nearest main road. As I observed it I tried to figure out if it was an airplane or a helicopter. Because it continued on a straight track towards me several miles away I thought it was an airplane, but it only had one light. I didnt think it was a helicopter because it did not move around like helicopters do, but instead continued straight towards me. My wife and kids joined me in the car and I drove up the road toward the light. At that time I noticed that the light was not moving very fast and was going quite slow. I reached the light a few minutes later and upon reaching it I stopped the car in the middle of the street, in the middle of traffic and my ife and I both got out of the car and watched the craft cruise overhead. At first I couldnt believe what I was seeing and my mind struggled to identify what I was seeing. I thought it was a toy of some sort, albeit an elaborate one due to the fact we lived outside Detroit and I thought it was a remote controlled craft belonging to an automobile company executive. Then I thought it was an experimental craft from a nearby air national guard base. But then I realized it was neither and I was amazed by it. It was about a thousand or so feet overhead moving very slowly over the neighborhood and us. It was a bright white color and was shaped exactly like a star wars battle cruiser that you see in the star wars movies. It even had three blue lights-exaust ports at the rear of the ship like those in star wars. It continued to move overhead while we watched. apparently alone because no other cars stopped and it didnt look like any body was outside their house watching. We then both got into the car and attempted to follow the craft as it glided diagonally through the adjacent neighborhood. We were not able to stay with the ship and we watched as it continued to fly and eventually disappeared in the distance. After that my wife and I looked at each other and couldnt believe what we saw. The kids werent old enough to get out watch like we did,. and they were asleep anyway. We didnt talk to anybody about that event for a while and then only to people we knew well and even they didnt really believe us. As a footnote, neither my wife or I had been drinking or using drugs so this was not a fantasy or a daydream. It happened and we both were changed after that. I had always felt that ufo's were real and I was always interested in them but to see one is a life changing experience.

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

It was definately not a planet, star, birds etc. It was exactly as I described.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Something in me believed in ufo's before this and after this I definately believed in them.

Other Comments

I think it was one of the most important events in my life.
