Description: I recently experienced what I believe was a potential UFO sighting! It was seen in Battle Creek, Michigan in the western sky around 8 PM on March 6, 2008. It was a large round yellow-goldish light like a single head light in the sky. I thought it was unusual because there wasn't a tower of any sort near by. The light was very bright and continued to be bright. There was absolutely no movement as far as I could tell, but then again I was in a moving car so I am not sure if I would notice. After about 10 minutes of watching the strange stationary light it seemed to rotate slightly to the left and now I could see a slight elongated diamond shape. I could still see a sliver of the bright "headlight" like light. On the back side there were other lights, but not like those of warning lights on a plane, but like windows lit from the inside. Then suddenly it shot straight up a ways, then a hard jolt to the right. It then seemed like it hovered there for a moment and then it shot very fast, straight up in the sky. As it did that it slowly grew fainter. It was almost like a shooting star, but it went up perfectly straight in an incredible amount of time. literally like 1/2 of a second. I have never seen anything like this before.

Comments: The witness has described something in the sky that revealed considerable structural detail when it moved or changed position. Given the aerial maneuvers described it is difficult to ascribe this sighting to conventional causes.
