Man Sees Very Bright Slow Moving Light Abruptly Streak Away
Date of Sighting: May 26, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9:45 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Florence, Alabama (Extreme NE Alabama)
Description: First of I am a devout Christian, but I know what I saw. I saw a bright blue-white light moving slowly from north to east. There was no sound and I saw it for 20 seconds moving slowly in same direction. It was so bright I could not look directly at it for more than 4 seconds at a time. After 20 seconds it all of a sudden what seemed like at the speed of sound shot off up into space. I know what I saw and I know it was not from this Earth. This has totally changed my view of life.
Note: The witness has described something that doesn’t fit standard explanations like satellites, meteors, space junk, etc. The extreme brightness observed is an interesting characteristic. Iridium flare satellites exhibit very bright flashes, but it sounds like this light was steady and did not flash.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
