((NUFORC Note: We suspect the following report describes Venus in the eastern sky, although that is an educated guess. Unless the witnesses saw TWO bright lights in the eastern sky at 0500 hrs., the light they were observing, we feel, must have been Venus. However, please look at the next report from Cumberland, RI, for this date. PD))

FOLLOWED IN VEHICLE BY A BRIGHT LIGHT RESEMBLING A STAR

DRIVING ALONG STATE HWY 35W COMING HOME TO COON RAPIDS FROM HINKLEY MINNESOTA, THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE NOTICED TO THE EAST A BRIGHT LOW HANGING LIGHT. IT WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT, LOOKED LIKE A STAR AT FIRST. IT WAS TOO CLOSE TO BE A STAR. IT PROCEEDED TO COME CLOSER TO THE HIGHWAY. WE THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS AN AIRPLANE. BEFORE EXITING OFF TO HIGHWAY 10, WE SUPSPECTED IT WAS NIETHER AN AIRPLANE OR A HELICOPTER. IT ZIG-ZAGED, AND WENT FROM BEING VERY CLOSE TO US, TO LOOKING LIKE A DISTANT STAR WITHIN SECONDS, THEN CLOSE AGAIN. WHEN WE GOT ONTO HIGHWAY 10 GOING WEST, IT LOOKED AS IF IT WAS GOING TO KEEP GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION, THEN QUICKLY TURNED AND WAS FOLLOWING US FROM BEHIND. WE HAD EVEN IN FACT, PASSED A SMALL AIRPORT, ON HIGHWAY 10, WHICH WE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD LAND, BUT IT KEPT FOLLOWING OUR VEHICLE. THERE WERE NO BLINKING RED OR BLUE LIGHTS, THAT WOULD INDICATE A FAMILIAR AIR CRAFT. WHEN WE GOT TO STREET EXIT, HANSON BLVD., WE PULLED OVER IN A VACANT PARKING LOT. WE OBSERVED THE U.F.O. HOVERING TO THE EAST, STAYING AS A BIG BRIGHT LIGHT TO JUST A SPEC IN THE GALAXY. WHEN DRIVER PROCEEDED TO DROP ME OFF AT MY HOME, AS SOON AS I GOT OUT OF THE VEHICLE, THE LIGHT GOT SMALLER AND SMALLER, UNTIL IT DISAPPEARED. I WENT INTO THE HOUSE JUST FOR A MOMENT, THEN CAME BACK OUT, I SAW THE SPEC IN THE SKY. THE DRIVER THEN PROCEEDED TO HER RESIDENCE, NOT SEEING IT THE ENTIRE WAY HOME, UNTIL SHE PULLED DOWN HER STREET, WHICH IS ABOUT 15 MINUTES NORTH TO ANDOVER, WHERE SHE SAW THE LIGHT BEHIND HER HOUSE. IT WAS BIG, BRIGHT, AND HANGING LOW. IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS SHAPED LIKE AN ARROW HEAD ALMOST FROM THE LIGHT.
