Duration: about 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A saucer shaped object, traveling very fast, and with amazing ability to make sharp, smooth turns.

I got out of my car at about 8:30 PM, and looked up to the south to see a very bright light. It was about the size of a star (maybe a little bigger), but it had a brightness almost that of the moon. At first I thought it might be a meteor or something, so I stood to watch it. I realized it was moving toward me, and as it did, the one bright light became smaller lights. There was also a flashing red light. It continued to get closer, and I thought it was a very low flying airplane. However, I suddenly realized it was making no noise at all, and I found this very odd. I am nearly positive that it stopped and hovered, although I cannot be entirely sure. As it did, I could make out the outline of it. It appeared to be about the shape of a bowler hat. The lights were around what would appear to be the brim, and the dome part was dark, but I could make out the silouette against the night sky. I suppose this dome part could have been my imagination, but I'm almost positive of what I saw. Before this, I was still under the impression that it was an airplane. I certainly was not expecting to see this shape, and it instantly gave me chills. Suddenly, the object made a sharp 90 degree turn and took off to the south. This, to me, confirms it was no aircraft that I've ever seen before. The way it turned, it was so smooth, and very quick. Before, as it came towards me, I could not see the speed with which it moved, but after the turn, I could tell that it moved very quickly. I walked toward my back yard so i could see it through the neighboring houses, and I watched it dissapear over the tree line to the south. Something that may have just been coincidence: I could hear several dogs barking off to the south, which I thought sounded like what I had heard about other UFO sightings.

The thing about all this is, before tonight, I really did not believe in UFOs that much. I thought people who saw them were crazy. Tonight left serious doubt in my mind. I'm writing this less than an hour after the event, so it's still completely fresh in my mind. I will swear on anything that I'm not making this up. Coming from someone who thought people who saw UFOs were crazy, I would say that what I saw was most definantly a UFO, no question about it.
