Duration: 1min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The craft ,shapped like a saucer with spinning lights,hid behind a barn when I turned to follow it

On an early trip home from work,I was driving north on Kitchen-Dick rd.As I approached the intersection with the Old olympic Hy.I was traveling about 50 mph approx. one eighth of a mile to the stop sign,I noticed a craft flying in the distance.At first I couldn't tell how far or what it was.But as I got closer to the intersection, I could tell it wasn't normal and it was flying directly over the road in front of me.By the time I arrived at the stop sign I could see a saucer shapped craft with circular lights spinnig in sections. The top and bottom spun in opposite directions. When I reached the stop sign it passed directly in front of me. I knew i had just wittnesed a UFO.So I turned the corner to follow it and drove about twenty seconds and it turned right over an open field about two hundred yards out and turned again lowering to hide behind a barn and house.I stopped my car oppened the door and staired for about thirty seconds waiting to see if it was going to take off.It didn't.I closed the door and drove five miles to my house and woke my wife to tell her about it.I was to afraid to pursue it from the road but it was the most facinating thing I have ever seen next to child birth.As a Navy brat raised next to a Navel Air Station in Jacksonville,Fla. for fifteen plus years,I know aircraft.This wasn't like any thing that I've ever seen before.
