Location: Lochbuie, CO
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Super fast white light flying horizontal for 20 sec. flash in mid-air then gone

Driving home from band practice, Lochbuie, Co. 5/5/04.

Heading, looking South.

My brother and I see what we think is a shooting star at first.

Bright white light all of a sudden far in the distance moving real real fast.

Both like "Woh, check that".

Watching it so close have to slowly pull the car over.

Then we both realize this light is going sideways, horizontal and staying that way.

Moving fast, 5, 10, 20 times faster than any light from anything either of us have ever seen in the sky before.

We we're both saying "what the hell" under our breath.

It continues long enough sideways that I end up pulling the car over to almost a stop.

I lose it in my vision because itís gone to the side of the window where the window meets the interior.

I can't see it anymore.

My brother can still see it and he says that it stopped, still in the air, flashed for a second and was gone.

The speed it was going only compares to a falling star.

Yet it remained sideways, horizontal to the ground the entire time.
