|orange glowing sphere, very low to the ground
It was about 10:00 pm October 15, 2005 and a good friend and I were on our way to my house (which is about 4 miles east of Gleason) to work on my truck, because it was having problems at the time.
We were traveling east, and we were at an area where there are fields on both sides of the highway. My friend in the passenger seat was looking out the window, and then I heard him say,"Oh my God! What the hell is that?"
I immediately stopped my girlfriends car.(we were using hers because my truck was out of commission) I looked so I could see what he was seeing, and to my astonishment, we saw a bright orange, glowing object to the south of us. It appeared to be very close and very low to the ground, also, probably 300 yards out in the field and approximately 200-300 feet off of the ground.
We got out of the car to watch this phenomenon happen before our eyes. Then suddenly it zipped to the west at an amazing speed, then it would slowly come back to where it was when we first saw it. It had done this 3 times. Then it started moving to the south.
We got back in the car and I turned south down a gravel road and we could see it through the trees that it was moving a little faster than us. The object was to our right hand side and in front of us on the other side of the trees. Then it began to go to the south east. Then I turned left down another gravel road so we could meet it on the next road over.
We got to the next road over that went north and south. We turned to the south and could still plainly see it over the road about 1/4 mile ahead of us. Then it crossed the road still heading south east. We got up to a bridge and then started to go up the hill that followed.
Then there were open potato fields on both sides of the road. We could still see it, but now it was "pulsing" orange and red.
We came to another highway that went east and west, but we stopped to watch it again.
Then right before our eyes, the sphere object took off to the north, and in the blink of an eye it was gone.
We are very glad to have witnessed a UFO, because we may not ever get to see one ever again.
