Duration:~15 minutes
Strange, unidentified light that makes seemingly intelligent responses to it's sighting.

My future wife and I were driving home from a late work shift. About 12 minutes out of town we noticed what looked like a low/large orangish star. (We were thinking Venus or Mars or something.)

The closer we came to town we noticed the object seemed to get larger and lower in the sky.

About 12 minutes pass and we arrive at the first stop sign in town. At this point the object was really low and a little big to pass for a star/planet. I stepped out of the car to look at it clearly (without windshield between line of sight). I told my wife (future) as I stepped out that it was really low in the sky. As I said this, I pointed at the object.

At that precise moment as if reacting to my pointing it made this fantastic manuever that I know for a fact no known human craft can do. It made a really fast spiral pattern, leaving a light trail behind it. (motion blur). It then began to "float" across the sky very slowly.

I drove up the street a little further, pulled over into a parking spot and watched it some more. I noticed a police officer parked just up the street and walked out to his car to point out the object to him.

I did not see what happened next myself, but my girlfriend (wife now of 13 years) said as I walked up to the officers car the object shot off into the horizon at amazing speed. It may be one of those "you had to be there" moments, but for me and my wife it was something that we still talk about and are still confused and intrigued by today. I would definitely like to be contacted about this by an investigator if possible.

It would be nice to talk to someone with more experience in this field about what happened.
