While driving south on Route 53 with my brother, we were exiting a thunderstorm. Leaves, trees and branches were moving violently. It had been raining hard. It had stopped raining. As we were coming up on a plateau where a silo, cow barn and cow field are located, we saw a light hovering above the cow pasture. We saw this light at 1/4 miles from plateau. My brother and I watched the light as we approached the plateau, not saying anything. Almost like we were in shock, I mentioned "What was this?" He acknowledged the same. We sped up and started approaching the hill to the plateau. As we came to approximately 100 yards, the object started to move. It had been hovering approx. 75-100 yards above the cow pasture. The object was round and orange-yellow in color. It was maybe 5-6 feet around. There was no sound. It took off and sped toward the ridge. I sped the auto to app. 85 mph to catch up. I was flashing the lights of the auto and blowing the horn. Personally, I felt as if our metallic presence of the auto was making the object move. It moved as we made our closest point of approach. Unusually, the object stopped at the ridge. It could have been our perception, but it appeared to stop before going out of sight. I had stopped the car and got out and yelled at it. I told my brother that if it were extra-terrestial, then I wanted to meet them. My brother and I travel down into the valley to cross another ridge. I had presumed that if it did land, then it was on top of the hill. We went down into the valley and lost sight of the object. My brother became terrified to go up on the hill to look for it. As we looked for something, I had felt that something was there and maybe it had landed. My brother did not want me to get out of the car. I did and I felt a strange sensation believing that there was something outside, possibly that this object had landed. This was many years ago in the 70's in approx. 1977 or 78. I would have cast off this sighting as something not worth mentioning but my brother had another sighting of the round object recently. He delivers newspapers in the early morning before dawn. I will get more info from him if you want. I did not see it recently but I always remember the sighting. I just got out of the Navy and I never knew where to report objects. Thanks and you can write back if you want more info. Thanks. ((Name deleted))
