The witness was driving east along Eagle Drive just past Bells Ferry Road at 9:30 p.m. on February 15, 2018.
“Large, long rectangle-shaped object, glowing with various shades of bright orange through surface covered in octagon-shaped windows/exterior shell,” the witness stated. “Appeared far ahead on horizon, flying low and north, having just come from the ridge of Putnam Ford Drive. At about Eagle Drive, it takes a wide turn to the west, taking it over the Etowah HS and Booth MS school complex and football stadium, then flies due west, slightly north and parallel to Eagle Drive. I'm still driving east on Eagle Drive, and it passes to my left just before I reach Rose Creek Drive. I look up to my left and I can see it through the tree tops as it passes. It was so big and orange that I couldn't process in the moment what I was seeing. It seemed whimsical, or psychedelic, like out of a carnival, as it glided by. My first thought was that maybe it was a huge long balloon with orange burners inside, but soon realized that it was too massive and moved too quickly to be a balloon. Its path would've taken it over Bells Ferry Road, over Jersey's and Walmart. Many others had to see it.”
Georgia MUFON Chief Investigator Jerry Carlson closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
