|Bright lights, driving in fog, on I-75 North, Monroe MI, 03.17.03, One center light, sourrounded by lights in circular shape.
- Ok, This is new to me. I am still confused as to what I saw. I travel for my job; leave home travel to airport and return biweekly. Same airport, same route. I have been doing so for a long time now.
- Yesterday, traveling from Toledo Ohio to DTW (Detroit Metro Airport) the weather was foggy. I was driving cautiously, taking my time to arrive safely. I was going from street lamp to street lamp just trying to stay awake. Fog to light, fog to light. All of a sudden the fog seemed visible, it was still there I just could see clearly. I was in the center lane of a three lane road. I looked for the source of the light, it was a shock to me, going from dark and fog to what seemed to be afternoon sun and fog. On my right, hovering was a bright light. I saw one light in the center and several in a circle around the center light. It was so weird, I began thinking what did I see, what is that. Then I was out of sight of it. I saw tail lights in the fog braking ahead of me before I came to that area. I did not brake, but I began driving faster. I am not a believer of these things. I have read and been told that these objects are sighted before and during wars and near nuclear power plants. Both are true when and where I was at that time. I was also thinking that street lamp was out of place, not the same time driving from one light to another. I am an Electrical Engineer (Controls Engineer, PLC's), so thinking logically comes naturally to me. I had my cruise control "on". I do so in fog because I know that when a person drives in fog they want to continouslly accel. I prefer to drive safe. Anyways, I saw something that did not belong there. I am submitting this because I hope any other persons driving that day, on I-75, that saw the same thing I did also submit something. I need closure. I have sketched what I saw, it should not be there. I have not returned home yet, but I have asked my father to drive that stretch and he did not see anything resembling what I described. I have not been able to get the thing out of my mind... Thank you.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at some length, and we found him to be exceptionally eloquent and sincere in describing his sighting. He emphasized how bizarre the event was, and described how other vehicles apparently were responding to the presence of the object, which was very bright in the morning fog. Witness occupies a position of considerable responsibility. PD))
