Sighting Reports 2008

Two See Egg Shaped Object Flying Close to Ground

Date of Sighting: May 26, 2006
Time of Sighting: 10:30 AM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 28, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Less Than One Minute
Location of Sighting: On I-44 Between Springfield and Joplin, Missouri (SW Missouri)
Latitude: 37.07 Degrees North
93.93 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses:
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: (At Joplin) Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the South-Southwest at 14 MPH.

Description: We were driving through Missouri on Interstate 44 at a cruising speed of 70 MPH. At about 1030 AM a luminescent egg shaped object suddenly appeared about 60 feet off the ground 75 yards south of the interstate. The object seemed to pace us for about a minute. I was able to determine the size of the object by comparing it to a large metal barn with contrast to my Buick van. My guess was that it was about 100 ft long by 20 ft in height. I looked at my wife who was reading a map to get her attention and looked back at the object and waved symbolically. It rotated towards the southwest and accelerated out of sight in less than a minute. I don't have any physical evidence. This was just an observation.

Comments: This is a close encounter considering that the object was close to the ground and pacing the witnesses in their car. The witnesses have not responded to my requests for more information. However, the account is compelling. The date of the encounter may not be correct.
