Posted: 10/27/2004
Location: South Daytona Beach, FL
Shape: Light
Duration: 6 sec
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Bright light shot at me, turned and shot straight up. Sounded like a chopper without the rotor sound.

Looked like a star, not one light that identified it as an aircraft (strobes, position lights). Got very bright, descended and flew at me. Looked like it stopped and turned, then shot off at an angle almost straight up faster than anything I could ever have imagined. Sounded like a helicopter but without the rotors. Was not a star, planet, plane, etc. It was very dark out and I could see a lot of stars, not many lights around. 2 Cars behind me, one of them almost swerved off the road while the other one pulled over. Not sure how many people were in the other cars but I know the drivers of the other two cars saw the object.
