Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Huntington, WV
Shape: Unknown
Duration:10-15sec.
At ~6:45 a.m. on 12-26-99, I watches a football shaped light approached from the S/West and travel N/East,it remained as constant starlike light in a football shape(horizontal position),no strobes or beacon lights seen on it, appeared to be at a low altitude or a 25 to 30 degree angle on the horizon. Saw it for 10-15 sec. and it looked the same coming as it did going. No strobes, beacons or sound.

12-26-99 at ~6:45a.m. while walking my dog, I looked up to see a very high flying jet overhead that I had heard roaring in the distance(the jet had red,green and white strobes easily seen). After the jet flew out of sight toward the S/West and I could no longer hear it, I saw a football shaped light approach from the S/West and a much lower altittude. It was approx. 25-30 degrees above the horizon line and moved at a very quick pace. It grew in intensity as it passed over Huntington,but it never revealed a strobe or flashing beacon light. It looked like a football travelling horizontally. from my S/W(my left) to N/E(my right). I watched and followed it till it went out of my view. The sky was crystal clear,the waning moon was visible and I could even see white con tails that streaked the pre-dawn sky. Not a sound could be heard as it traveled at a very quick clip. Perhaps 5x's as fast as the passenger jet I had seen a few minutes earlier. Just a football shaped light as big as a grain of rice held at arm's length.No contrail, marker lights or sound. Looked the same coming as it did going.
