My then l0 year old and I noticed a shiny "glint" in the sky over the berry college campus. We at first thought it to be a love flying jet but we followed it's movement and it was soon joined by approximately four other objects. They were in formation with the first object we had spotted being in the lead. Actually, I believe that the first object dropped (descended) and then the other four obects fell in behind. As I watched the objects disappear, the whole mountain over which they had flown or floated was completely bathed in a light that was glowing a reddish-orange color. I ran to get a witness other than my now terrifed child and an elderly lady also witnessed the whole mountain lighting up. I tried to rationalize by convincing myself that these were jets and one of then at least had crashed into the mountains. No plane crash as far as I can find out was reported and also five jets would not have been flying over Lavendar Mountain as low as this. I did find an article in the Rome News Tribune about a spacecraft, or flying saucer looking object that the Berry College students had designed and actually gotten to fly..There was a picture of the "flying saucer" in the paper. Just one. Not Five. And Berry College is anAgricultural College. This is the first time I have ever heard of themAlso I hav dealing with aerospace. It just did not make much sense and the more I think about it the more I wonder if the story in the newspaper about the "flight worthy" aircraft erected by some college boys at an Agricultural College is not some sort of cover-up for something.Also my daughter and I have not come across anyone else except the two of us and the elderly lady whom I knew who experienced this sighting. How can that be possible. The whole mountain lit up in the dark.
