|Giant UFO seen up close
I was picking up my girlfriend from Meijer off of U.S. 37, we were at the intersection of U.S. 37 and the road to Meijer. It was really foggy and directly across from us was a light pole, that was in front of a very large clearing between two forests. We were stopped waiting for the light to turn green for our turn to go. My girlfriend and I were in my 1981 RS Camaro. The light finally turned green and I began slowly turning left to go down U.S. 37.
About half-way through I noticed the fog behind the light pole beginning to seperate and the crest of the UFO appear. I immidiately stopped and watched. Subsequently everyone else 4 other cars I noticed also stopped. The object emerged through the fog and the light of the light pole shined on it. It was colored like coal, black but shiney. It had alot of contouring, similar to that of the UFOs in the movie Independance Day.
At first the nose of it (assuming the nose) was pointing down and it looked like it was about to crash into the ground. Maybe a few feet from the ground, it then began to slow down and pull up. Almost like a computer in slow-motion. After which, It just hung there and didn't move.
It was very very big, from what I could see sticking out of the fog, it had to be as wide as the clearing itself. At this time their is now a Super Wal-Mart in that very same clearing to give you an idea on its size. The object made no sound at all, except for the sound of the air rumbling around it. And their were no lights of any kind that I could observe. It was probably 80-90 ft in front of us, about 20ft from the ground.
