late at nite, huge object, hovered about 50 ft. above ground. saw windows on the bottom. with orange glow eminating from windows .

Experienced by my co-worker, Steve. It happened, he went for a drive with his wife and 7 yr. old daughter. They drove near a car-wash on , I guess a back street.. Steve said he saw thiss thing floating about 50 feet up in the air. He stopped his car beneath this thing.Steve got out under this thing. He describes it as follows. It was a very very dark nite. As I drove by the car wash, I could see this thing, about 50 feet in the air. It was making no noise. at first, I only law a circle about 25 feet in diameter. at approximately a 90 degree angle from the bottom of the circle, I could windows, with and orange amber glow coming from them.The windows connected to the bottom of this huge thing, that was as big as a football field..I listened for a sound and heard nothing, but was completely AWE STRUCK . I saw, what looked like scorch marks on the bottom where the windows connected to the bottom to this huge ship.. My wife screamed out to me, Steve, get back in the car.I came back to my senses. Unbelievablelythis object, moved slowly at first, , then ziiiiiiippppp, it moved about 2 miles in a couple of seconds. It stopped right above a small mountain and zipped, very fast over them, about 5 miles away towards some other mountains, paused and moved out of site. My friend Steve, a co-worked told me this. He and his wife is now divorvced and he has remarried. His new wife did'nt believe him. He went thru a nasty divorce, but to this day, his ex backs him up with this story. Steve can really tell u the details better than I can.
