Account written by ((name of husband deleted)) I, ((name deleted)) and my wife, ((wife's name deleted)) observed on March 15, 2004 at approximately 8:30 PM, while traveling in our vehicle on Hope Chapel Rd. going North, a spectacular sight. ((wife's)) glasses were in hand, but she feels the object looked like a comet, because of a trail behind it. (We have noted that a comet came close to the earth on Mar 18, but not on the 15th). According to myself, ((husband)), (who saw it clearly), I feel there were 2 lights traveling from East to West close together. Both of us agree that it did not move smoothly as an airplane would. I, ((husband)) feel that there were 2 lights traveling slow together, at which point, the leading light, sped up while the other one "hung back" and then disappeared. Very possible that it was a government aircraft given the close proximity to McGuire Air Force Base and the current technologies to counter global terrorism. Remotely possible that it was extraterrestrial in nature. ((wife)) thinks it may have even been a plane crashing because she noted a downward patten toward the earth. We couldnt find any record of any plane crashes.
