While driving home from Jupiter Island , several people were driving south on A-1-A , one of the occupants in the vehicle saw an egg-shaoed object , hovering above the shoreline , approx. 50 feet above the water. The distance to the vehicle was only about 30-35 feet , as the road was well above the water's edge. The craft was silent and as the sun set , it was cast against the stars that were appearing. A beam of white light emmited from the underside , and searched the bottom of the shoreline. As the passenger tried to get the attention of the others , the beam of light hit the car . The next thing the witness recalls is that everyone in the vehicle is as though in a trance.The witness asks the others if they heard him trying to get their attention , and they all say no. The total time for the return trip to So. West Palm Beach normally takes 45 min. to 1 hour. 4 hours ellapsed!
