Location: Whitehall, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Orange yellow spherical light streaked across the rural forrested highway and disappeared beyond the treeline.

After leaving Chicago after dinner on June 13, 2013, I was headed to Pentwater, MI. At approximately 2:15 a.m., e.s.t., I was driving northbound on RT 31, a few miles North of Whitehall, MI.

There is treeline on both sides of the highway, and along the area dividing the highway directions. The treeline starts approximately 25 yards off the street. Streaking from left to right, heading away from the lake, was a spherical or ovular object that was bright yellowish/orange.

I only saw the object as it flew over the center treeline, and until it disappeared over the treeline to my right. It crossed the highway approximately 50 yards ahead of me and was approximately 75 feet off of the ground. It was 50% larger than a passenger van.

It moved extremely fast - treeline to treeline only took it 2 seconds or so. It was totally silent, and there were no other cars on the highway in either direction. Its movement was perfectly parallel to the ground.

After it cleared the treeline to my right, it seemed to arch slightly downward to cling to the treeline and disappear from my sight as I drove by.

I was alone in the car, but my dog seemed to suddenly look at attention after he had been sleeping most of the drive.

The fluidity of the object's movement was unlike any motorized object that I've ever seen.
