The witness was out on a bike ride on his Harley Davidson beginning at about 9:30 p.m. ending up in the town of Ludington at 10:55 p.m. at a bridge over the Sable River where he parked for a cigarette.
“I took a puff off my smoke and looked up to see it,” the witness stated.“It was large and broad, moving east down the lakeshore over the water. It was dull and dark and triangular in shape. The underside didn’t seem to be lit, but it had some reddish and bluish lights at its point and midway down the side. It seemed to be a half-mile out or so.”
