Duration: 4 minutes
No of observers: 3

Location: Cropwell, AL, USA

Shape: Unknown

Around 10:40 to 11:00 pm this evening, ((name #1 deleted)), ((name #2 deleted)) and myself were at the lake swimming.

As I was looking up toward the sky I saw what looked like a flame coming towards us. I began to think it was a plane on fire that was about to crash heading in our direction.

It began to descend so close, I almost panicked then it started ascending again.

From where I was standing in the lake it began to go toward my left in the direction of Pell City.

I had to walk further in the water to keep it in sight so the trees weren't blocking my view.

Within a few seconds it was no longer visible at all. I found this strange because of how slowly it was descending.

This was the strangest thing I have ever witnessed in my life.
