|Tri-lobed object passes cars on interstate, picture taken
Witness was travelling north on Interstate 81 North when he saw a metallic glint out of the corner of his eye out his driver side window. As he turned and looked he saw a tri lobed metallic object passing his car. He was doing 75 mph. As the object passed him and crossed the highway, he grabbed his camera from the seat and turned it on. Snapping several photos, he captured one frame with the object in it.
He states that the relative size at it's closest was that of a golfball at arm's length. Speed was tremendous as it was gone from sight in mere seconds. He stated that the object seemed to be about 1/2 a mile away from him and there were many cars moving with him and he is sure that ohers had to have seen this object. This is a preliminary report filed for the witness. I will follow up this with a in person interview and a call to the local FAA office.
