Description: Listen to 5 Minute Interview of Witnesses (MP3). The primary witness (mother) reported the sighting only a few minutes after it happened. I interviewed both witnesses. The daughter noticed more detail because the mother was preocuppied with driving. Witnesses stated that they noticed two very bright objects stacked on top of each other low in the southern horizon. The witnesses were traveling eastbound in a car at the time of the sighting. Witnesses stated that the lights were to the west of the full moon which was in a southeasterly position at the time of the sighting. Witnesses stated that upon sighting the object they turned the car around (to drive westbound and the object was no longer in view).

Investigator's Notes: My first impression is that the witnesses sighted the moon. However, both witnesses plainly stated that the moon was in view throughout the entire sighting. A slight possibility exists that the moon could have caused a reflection on the car window resulting in the illusion of lights in another position. (It is not known if the car window was rolled down at the time of the sighting.) This scenario is not likely, but is a possibility. Given available details I have no other explanation for this sighting.
