|Not a saucer. Many lights. Changed direction almost instantly. Very low and SILENT.
This is a second hand report from a friend. I will be as accurate as possible. Friend reports seeing a bright object streak across the sky so fast that he initially thought it was a meteor. Then the object suddenly stopped and turned towards his position and moved very slowly. He says the altitude was so low that he could have shot it if he was so inclined. Among the things he noticed are the following: 1. Absolutely no sound. He could hear nothing, but it was definitely close enough where he SHOULD have heard something.
2. It had wing-type structures and a tail. This was not a "Saucer" or anything like that, however it seemed to be flying too slow for a fixed-wing plane.
3. There were more lights on this craft than are on commercial/civil aircraft. He reports small lights in a rectangular pattern on the bottom, additional colored lights, and a band of light similar to a fluorescent tube along the side/bottom.
4. His gut feeling was that this was definitely something man made. It had an "of this Earth" look to it.
It disappeared behind trees and that was the end of his report.
