Reported: 2009-08-01 23:42 Pacific
Duration: 5 - 10 mins.
No of observers: 1

Location: Middletown, MD, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Lights on object

Nine organge lights in linear pattern in sky, changed direction, hovered and disappeared.

I was travelling on Rt. 17 South between Myersville and Middletown at 23:30 on August 1, 2009 travelling @ 25 mph.

I saw 9 orange (not red and not yellow) bright lights in the sky in front of me coming from the southeast (Washington, DC) in a straight line formation. The lights changed direction (east to west) and were travelling at equal speeds (they moved across my horizon in unison).

As I continued down the road south the lights again changed direction toward my car. At this time I decided to pull off to the side of the road.

The lights passed over my car and I looked out my sun roof but the light was too bright to make out the shape of the objects. I did not hear any sound.

Eight objects increased their speed and each disappeared sequentially heading north. The last object hovered over my car for 2-3 seconds and then sped off in a northern direction and disappeared.


We spoke via telephone with this witness, and she sounded to us to be quite sober-minded. We suspect that the report is quite accurate. PD
