Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Unexplained Light over Hardin County.

Observed an unknown light traversing the sky at an undeterminable rate of speed. The light moved from NE to SW in the span of 5 seconds or less before it was out of sight. This incident occurred as I was passing the exact spot where I first spotted the triangular shaped UFO several years ago in the mid 1990's (I recently submitted this event, but have yet to see it posted) but this sighting occurred at a much higher elevation.

As I was driving down Hutcherson Lane at a speed of 20mph, a bright yellow light entered my field of view from the top of my windshield. At first the light was travelling relatively slow, but then accellerated to a speed greater than I've seen any aircraft fly. It crossed my field of vision in 5 seconds or less, traversing diagonally across my windshield in a NE to SW direction before disappearing from sight.

I've ruled out the light as either a falling star or meteorite due to the fact that every event I've seen or heard of involving one of the above details the object as possessing a tail behind it. Besides, I've never known either of those stellar event to accellerate mid flight. The object also appeared to be moving parallel to the earths surface instead of angular, as if on a crash collision.
