Sighting Reports 1990Man & Son See Huge, Slow Moving Object in Night Sky Over Driveway
Date of Sighting: October, 1990 (Exact Date Unknown)
Description (In Witness's Own Words): It was the fall of 1990. I was in my home in Almont, MI. That time of year it gets dark quite early. It must of been around 8:00 PM: "The times are now just an approximation." My son, who at the time was around 12 came running in the house saying there was a UFO right outside our house. Let me add at this point I was not one who believed in UFOs. I went outside and my son pointed south and upwards and said look! The funny thing was at first I didn't see anything, but I did notice it was unusually dark. Then I noticed a very dim light. I suddenly realized that the reason it was so dark was that there was a huge craft right over our driveway. It was at tree level and was moving north and a very slow pace, "approximately a slow walking speed." There was a very distinct humming, exactly like a large transformer hums. There was a very dull light in the middle and as it traveled down or driveway I made out a row of windows around the craft. The windows looked very large. I remember walking down the driveway with my son. Then the next thing I remember is standing out in the field north of my house still looking at the UFO, when suddenly it went from approximately 90 or 100 ft straight up in the sky to where it was a pinpoint of light. It just looked like another star. This happened in under a second. We continued to watch it for quite awhile when it took off in a northwesterly direction like a meteor and was gone in a second. There are a lot of things I can describe if you are interested, but this is the basic part. I don't feel like I was abducted, but I honestly do not remember how I got from my driveway and then in the field. I have asked my son about it and he remembers things the way I do, but what I find unusual is that:
Investigator's Notes: This sighting happened several years ago, but the witness still vividly recalls details and was able to construct an explicit drawing of the object that he sighted. (It is not known when the drawing was constructed.) The witness has a good background and should be qualified to ascertain whether or not an aircraft is of conventional type. This sighting falls into the unidentified category.
