Bright white lights in the shape of a horizontal shaped Ferris-wheel hovering above the treetops.

On or about May 1, 2009, around 8:00 p.m. on a clear night, I was driving home from dinner with my sister and our girlfriend. We live in a rural part of town with a few farms, and several neighborhoods. It is very peaceful and everyone practically knows each other.

Here is a recount of what I saw that night. I was driving my SUV, my sister was in the passenger seat, and our girlfriend was in the back seat behind the passenger. As I made a left hand turn onto my girlfriend’s street, my girlfriend and I noticed bright, white lights just above the treetops about 300 yards away. My friend and I saw what looked like to be a “horizontal shaped Ferris-wheel” type object in bright, white lights (several lights spaced apart but looked to be connected vertically) hovering just over the treetops at the end of an open field. The object was not moving. The lights were spaced in two’s – one on top, one on the bottom, perfectly aligned, perfectly distanced from one another – they were several of them. The circular object was huge! We were speechless. When I finally had to put my eyes back onto the road, the two of us were hysterical. We asked my sister what she thought about it, but she was looking straight ahead at the road. She never saw th! e lights. At first, we thought someone was having a party and had rented circus-type rides. However, why would the rides be above the treetops? We decided I should keep driving while we tried to locate the lights in the sky so my sister could see them. I ended up driving a three-mile loop, but they were gone. From the time she and I saw the lights to driving the three-mile loop, about 5 minutes had passed. There was absolutely no sighting of anything in the sky, nor no sighting of any parties in the neighborhood.

As we dropped off our girlfriend, we told her father about what we saw. I wanted to call the police department. He told us we were crazy! He asked us what we ate for dinner. My girlfriend and I ate the chicken fingers with fries and he told us something was in the food. I still cannot get that vision out of my mind. I drive past that area all time, as it is about two miles from my home.

I was 44 years old and working at the family business. My girlfriend was 38 years old and owned a hair salon. My sister, also 38 years old, works at the family business. Whenever we get together, we reminisce about that night and what we saw. We both believe it was something extraterrestrial.

This isn’t the first time I noticed odd things in the sky. I know it won’t be my last.
