Lasar Color: White Object on Ground: approximately 3 ft curled up rubber or snake like object Unique Characteristic of Sighting: The bowl was upside down, hanging by a black 3 inch diameter solid material, it was hanging from a power line in an intersection.

Unique Characteristic of Sighting: The traffic lights were normally extremely bright on my drive home from work. This particular evening, I noticed the traffic lights were extremely dim.

Description of the sighting: It was a clear night on my way home from work. I had driven this route every night for the last several months. The traffic lights always illuminated up the area and you could see it for a couple miles. I noticed in the distance the traffic lights at the intersection where I turned left were extremely dim on this night. At first I assumed there must be something wrong with the lights. I figured maybe some sort of construction was going on. Anyway, as I approached the intersection I saw this bowl like object hanging from a 3 inch diameter cable looking connection device shining a 3 inch diameter lasar on the ground. I came to a complete stop just under the lasar so as to put the lasar right outside my driver window. I looked on the ground to see there was a rubber looking 1 inch diameter 3 feet long snake looking thing in the lasar beam. I looked back up and saw the under side of the bowl. It was solid black with the exception for the 3 inch diameter beam shining down. I started to put my hand out to see if I could determine its temperature and immediatley got nervous and turned left and stopped to car. I got out of the car to examine the device more closely from outside my car and it was suddely gone.

I didn't hear any sound. I didn't see it fly away. Of course, after I drove underneath and turned left I was in the car and it was to my back for about 20 seconds. I figured it took off while my back was turned. I didn't experience any loss of time. I didn't experience any abduction. It was simply hanging there and appeared to cause the traffic lights to go dim.

It was only 12 to 15 inches in diameter. It was hanging from the power lines shining a 3 inch diameter beam onto the approximatlely 3 foot snake like object. And when it disappeared, the traffic lights were back to full illumination. The long rubber like object or snake like object was gone too. Everything was normal and no sign of the object.
