|Possible Blimp or UFO
In the north eastern sky, right after dark, I saw a white grouping of lights above a tree line behind my home near our lake. There is a sports arena close by and I thought it was a blimp because I have seen them flying during the day in that area. The bottom of the craft seemed to be lined with lights that formed almost a full circle, about 3/4 of a circle. The craft dipped below the trees and began to head north at a lower altitude. I wanted to show a friend and my husband who came out and we watched it continue north through the tree branches and skyline until it seemed to head east again and disappear from site. I also heard a helicopter but could not see one. There is a flight pattern in the direction it moved towards and I saw many planes and heard helicopters for about 20 minutes after the sighting. I tried to find a blimp schedule with no luck. I did look up some pictures of blimps at night and this did not look anything like what pictures I found on the net. The lights twinkled and seemed clustered together at times and the shape seemed more mushroom shaped at times. It was a huge light in the sky, easily 100 times the size of Venus.
