Location: Hickory Plains, AR
|I was travelling late Thursday night, April 5, 2007 at 11:37 pm where approximately 0.5 mile from the intersection of Arkansas State Route 38 and 13 heading east I observed what I thought was a plane heading to Little Rock Airport but did not have the lights such as found on aircraft.
The light was white colored and travelled in a Northwesterly direction when it literally dropped down below the tree line, I estimated the the drop was at least 10,000 feet in a matter of a few seconds.
I kept travelling east and went through a bend in the road and as the orientation of the tree line changed I saw the light again this time it was just above the tree line when it literally accelerated at an astonishing rate of speed again the to northwest and disappeared. I do not know if there were one or two objects/lights.
I often travel late at night as the territory associated with my job spans several states and have seen other aerial phenomenon, but this object/light flight and acceleration was not that of an airplane.
I have a Ph.D., I have published in several scientific journals and am an Eagle Scout.
