Description: One of the witnesses called and left a voice-mail describing their sighting. Three family members were sitting in the backyard and noticed a black “hat shaped” object with “bat-like” wings flying rapidly just above the treeline. The object was only visible for about five seconds. The object emitted no sound and was moving northwest. Skies were partly cloudy at the time of sighting.
Note: I interviewed the witness who left the voice-mail message and found her to be quite sincere and explicit in the description of the sighting. Sunset was at 8:36 PM EDT so the witnesses had plenty of daylight to see the object. There were a few clouds at heights of 7,000 and 11,000 feet.
