I was leaving work, driving home. Around 12:30am, maybe a little before or a little after this time. I am not totally sure the clock in my car was screwed up and not set to the correct time. I was on the phone at the time, talking and just watching the road ahead. Caught a light out of the corner on my eye but didnt look. First thought it was a reflection off my lights that lit up my dash. Then I quickly thought to myself, the reflection would be orange if it were and the light was not. So I quickly looked up in the sky at an angle on my left side. I instently froze. I could not speak and slammed on my brakes, stopping dead in the middle of the road to watch. It was a bright white light, the purest white light I have ever seen and a smaller, but still huge greenish light infront that quickly faded gone in a matter on seconds. The bright white light was left, it appeared to be a longated, cigar shaped light. And in less then a minute it had gone from my left hand side to my r! ight. Moving fast as it quickly disappeared over the hills. I have seen plently of planes, helicoppters and even army planes in my life. This was nothing I had ever seen. It appeared to low due to the size of the lights but still higher in the sky then the hills it disappeared over. I heard no sound. It moved way too quickly to be a plane or jet.

The friend I was on the phone with, who I told and described everything to said he emailed the Benwood police department asking if there had been any reports and has yet to get a reply.
