Sighting Reports 2011Man Sees Silver Metallic Craft With Blue Fluorescent Light Flying Low.
Date of Sighting: November 7, 2011
Description: I was driving home to Georgia after visiting my family in Jonesboro, Arkansas on the morning of November 7, 2011. I left at exactly 4:30 AM. It was very dark and I had been driving about 20 minutes, when I noticed a blue fluorescent looking light about 3 miles ahead of me. It was low to the ground and illuminated the field below. It was in the area outside of Trumann Arkansas heading towards Memphis. There was a field to my right and no street lights. As I was approaching, I noticed there were no other cars on the road. I could see this thing to the right of my car. For an instant I thought it could be a plane or maybe a crop duster, but then as I got closer I noticed there was no sound. There is an airport in Jonesboro, Arkansas and one in Memphis, Tennessee so my first instinct was to think there had to be some kind of explanation. I slowed down so I could get a better look and was approximately 20 feet from the craft about the level of a telephone pole. What I saw: The craft was round but pointed in the front, almost like a stealth bomber. It was a silver metallic color, a very soft looking material. It was thick in the front but rounded. It moved very slowly and had no sound. I could see the fluorescent blue lighting that lit up the ground underneath like it was looking for something. As I was lined up directly side by side it was still. I passed it, but kept looking in my rearview mirror at it, not believing what I saw. It never occurred to me to take a picture, as I was mesmerized. I wasn't really afraid in the beginning, but then became aware of my surrounding and the possibility of not making it home.
