Description (In Witness's Own Words): I was driving on Highway Z about 7 miles north of Columbia and saw something up in the sky. At first I thought it was a helicopter but it did not appear to be moving. It was a dull matte grey color and looked like two inverted contact lenses stuck together to make a domed disk shape with a little square turret on top, with a large round blue/white light on one side. Whatever way the object was moving was the way the light faced. It was dark and the blue/white might was bright. A vehicle was stopped on the other side of the road with 3 occupants in it, watching the object. 1 female and 1 male were standing up in the bed of the truck and 1 male was standing on the dash of the drivers side. I pulled over, opened my car window and turned my vehicle off to see if I could hear anything. I was about 60 feet from that vehicle, and sat and watched the object for a while. One of the males yelled over to me if I saw it, I answered yeah, that's why I stopped. They asked what it was and I said I didn't know. The object would stay in one spot for a while, then move very slowly, then stop, then move again, never with any noise. It finally arced around and moved faster away towards the northwest.

Investigator's Notes: This is a most interesting sighting. The witness has described a "classic flying saucer." Considering that the clouds were fairly low the object must have been flying low. Like most sightings the validity of this sighting rests with the credibility of the witness.
