Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 minutes
While traveling along a country road one night from Snellville to Stone Mountain, we saw an aircraft slowly moving toward us. My husband and I thought it was a small plane or helicopter until it got close and low to our car. It then followed us down the road for several miles until we got to our house - then flew off and disappeared. The craft made no sound and had three large glowing center lights on the bottom. You could barely see the shape of the craft behind the bright lights but it looked triangular. The light did not shine onto the car or street. There was no wind. Afterward, the Atlanta Journal reported several sightings of this craft around the city during the same week. My husband remembers the lights to be white in color and I remember them to be muted red, orange, and yellow. I am curious as to why we have different perceptions about such a memorable sight. We were extremely frightened because no matter what speed we were going, it hovered directly above us. We looked out the windows and even stopped to get a better look at one point. It stopped when we stopped, then continued to follow us when we drove ahead.
