There was a UFO in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in 2000.

On a winter night in 2000, I stepped outside my house and saw in the neighbor's goat pasture a lighted object that hovered up, down, and up again. I called to my wife who came immediately and saw the object just as it began moving east toward Lake Charles Municipal Airport. We got into our car and followed the object, which had to have been moving close to 100 miles per hour. I distinctly remember the object passing in front of an airplane descending onto the runway. Afterward, the object moved too quickly out of our range to keep up with it. The local television station, KPLC, reported that there had been multiple sightings. The next day, our newspaper, "The American Press," reported that what people were seeing was a blimp with lights inside of the inflated part that was illuminating it. I was within three miles of the object and got no impression that it was a blimp, but I cannot say for certain what the object was.
