Description (In Witness's Own Words): The UFO I saw was HUGE. It was so close to the earth that I could see it clearly. It sat above some trees, seemingly on a pocket of air. I asked the man who was also standing out of his car what it was. He said, "I don't know." We followed it all the way down Harford Road. It isn't manmade because it just sits there without moving and it makes no sound. Just as suddenly it metamorphosed into a long thin shape of fire and light and shot away at an incredible speed. In one second it was above Joppa Road which is at least a mile from where we were standing. It was of metallic color and seemed to have a huge base with a smaller one on top. It looked like it had small closed port holes on the smaller section. To get an idea of its size: Look at the full moon tonight. This UFO was 10 to 20 times the size of a full moon. As I said, it was HUGE. I read an obit in the Washington Post several months ago about someone I don't know, but what attracted my attention was that right in the middle of this long obit was a statement about the person who had just died. It said he saw a UFO on top of the trees. It was so important to him that wanted this written up in his own obituary. I think it's time to stop smirking when people report seeing these unusual things. It's time to find out what UFOs really are and from where they are coming.

Investigator's Notes: This sighting obviously had a profound impact on the witness considering that the date of occurrence was recalled after nearly 40 years. Not much to say about this sighting other than the fact that the craft was clearly unidentified given the information reported.

Update September 2, 2008: The witness sent some maps and drawings of the object. The first drawing showed the appearance of the object as it was traveling. (Another witness said that he had followed it moving westward (down Harford Road). The second drawing showed the appearance of the object as left its hovering position over the tree.
