Description: Hi, after my son woke me at 3:42 AM this morning this has been on my mind so I looked up a few sites and came across yours. My son T. who is 15 yrs old and his best friend J. were coming back over to our house at 3:40 AM Monday morning from J's house across the street when my son looked up and he says he saw a UFO. He came right in and woke his mom and I up. He was scared and excited and wanted us to do something. WHAT, he said it looked like a, I don't know how to describe it but only as a tube like shape with lights on each end. It traveled from the north and was moving faster than a airplane then all of a sudden it went so fast it was gone. Both my son and J. saw this so after he woke us that is all I could think about. Therefore I am trying to find out if someone else saw this this morning or has this shape ever been described? Please let me know. Thanks.

Comments: I am planning to obtain more information about this sighting. Obviously the two teens were frightened by what they saw. Given available information not much can be concluded about this sighting. Updates will be posted.
