Number of Witnesses: Three

Description: The object appeared suddenly traveling parallel with the ground. It moved northeast to southwest. The object reflected the sun brightly for several seconds. In the last four seconds of the sighting the object diminished in size and then disappeared. The observer experienced a slowing of time for three weeks afterward.

Comments: This sighting report was received through the mail using the online mail report form (PDF). The witness driving westward when he saw the object. It is not clear if the other two witnesses were in the car with him. The object was described as "reflective silver" in color, but was only the size of a grain of rice held at arm's length. Therefore it would be difficult for the witness to determine a definitive shape at that size. The observation of "time slowing" is interesting, but obviously cannot be verified.
