The witness was southbound along U.S. Highway 27 at 8:05 p.m. on April 4, 2015, when the incident occurred.
“The sun had just set not that long before the sighting happened,” the witness stated. “I first saw a solid light in the sky descending. My first thought was that it was a plane landing since there is an airport not but five miles away from the highway.”
The witness continued to watch the light, but noticed it shifted its course away from the airport.
