|Glowing object crosses road right to left - vanishes into ravine..than crosses again left to right..then away.
Driving alone at night with another vehicle about 100 - 150 yrds ahead of me. An object apx half the size of my mini van shot across the road just behind the vehicle in front of me going from right to left. It seemed to zip down into the bar ditch.
I slowed down to about 15mph from 55mph. At first I thought it was a white van that had gone off the road or something as I was not sure what I was seeing at first.
As I got closer, say another 50 yards or so the light/sphere appeared again coming up out of the ravine along the left side of the road and crossed the road again. The speed at which it moved was amazing. I can only say that it zipped and darted.. Those words describe the action of the object.
It shot into the field on the right side of the road and then accelerated so quickly that it literally vanished. It took off at about a 45' angle to the south. This all took place with in the space of about 30 seconds..maybe faster.
I am not sure that anyone else saw the object, there where about 3 vehicles behind me the closest being apx 100 yrds. I had pulled over to the side and decelerated when I first saw the object cross over the road. The object gave off enough light that it lit up the ground under it in about a 50 yrd radius. This was more apparent as it entered the field and took off than when it crossed the road.
The entire object glowed white/blueish light. There was no sound that I could hear coming from it.
