|Craft seen with lights on top and bottom.
December 18, 2015
Sir: About 17:35 CST, in the Northeastern quadrant of Neshoba county, Mississippi, I witnessed a craft of unknown size for about 2 minutes. This was a little after sundown but still there was enough light for me to see my dog about 75 yards away. I couldn't tell the shape because of the bright lights that were situated on the top and the bottom of the craft. I watched it hover for the period of time stated and then entered my home to call for someone else to observe. When I again exited my home the object was gone. The appearance of the object, as far as I could see, was as though there was a straight line with three lights on top and three lights on bottom. As I said, the lights were very bright and prevented me seeing any detail other than what has been stated. From my position, I was looking approximately at a 30 degree angle and the object was about ¾ of a mile away. After it was no longer in my view, about 7 to 10 minutes later, a jet came from the north, heading in a southern direction. To our NNE, about 50 miles away is Columbus Air Force Base. To our SSE is the Meridian Naval Air Station, about the same distance. I hope this helps.
I have an MBA and a B.S. Degree in Secondary Education. I was stationed at Redstone Arsenal, in Huntsville, Al as a meteorologist. I used to own a Mercedes dealership. I tell you these things to let you know that most people consider me sane. Not that it should matter, I'm 66 years old.
