Case 111476: On his porch smoking a cigarette, Joseph [last name withheld] witnessed a hovering, glowing object that appeared to be solid and with randomly flashing lights. Joseph first noticed the object in the direction of Lake Seminole, about 10 miles southeast of Donalsonville, Georgia. Donalsonville is about 60 miles northwest of Tallahassee, Florida.
At first, the object's motion was described as hovering and was “stationary”, but according to his description, it apparently rotated to some degree since a light that was white, changed to red and then disappeared to the rear only to return to its previous position. The object was about 30° above the horizon. He estimated that the object was about 500 feet to one mile in the distance. Joseph observed the object for approximately one-half hour and then decided to go inside. Being 1 AM in the morning, there were, unfortunately, no other witnesses.
As this photograph was enlarged by the writer, there are two orbs on either side of the object are beyond the boundaries of the blown-up images. Some might say that the object was shaped like a golden nugget.
