|Large aircraft with bright white circular lights on its bottom half that hovered but could also move extremely fast
August 24th, 2011 I was sitting on my sofa when I noticed a bright white light out my back window. The light got closer and moved at a very fast pace. I said to my husband “what is that? What is that?” We both got up and went outside to my back porch. It was a very large UFO, perhaps the size of a football field, I am guessing. Even though it was very high up it was still massive in size and relatively low as we could make out that it was round in shape. We observed the UFO coming out of the North and heading towards the South. We stared in awe for a moment as it came towards us. There was absolutely no sound and it just hovered, then it made a wide U turn towards Tontogany (Northeast) and at that time we were able to see the lower half of the aircraft which had, what looked like to me, at least four circles on the lower half of the UFO. Each circle appeared white but when I got my camera and took a video the white light came up on my camera screen as being multicolored and blinking o! r flickering, although it did not appear this way to the naked eye only on camera. In person it appeared solid bright white lights but on camera is was a range of colors blinking. I have a couple videos, one is very descent but I am somewhat disappointed that I didn’t capture it at its closest range in which we first saw it. At one point it seemed to lower or drop rather suddenly, which I also have on camera. I only caught about 30 seconds of it before it disappeared above and beyond the town of Tontogany. Interestingly, we also saw and heard a airplane on the North and opposite side of the sky so we could actually compare how loud and how little that was in comparison to the UFO.
Whatever it was, it moved incredibly fast and I believe it had the potential to move a lot faster than we witnessed, maybe even lighting fast. The first sighting was at about ten minutes til 9 o’clock pm so it was still somewhat light out but dark for the most part. We live just outside Tontogany, Ohio which is a very small town in the rural area outside Bowling Green, Ohio. Also, there was an extreme amount of lighting just prior to seeing it and during the sighting as well. Even though there was mass amounts of lighting in the sky, the night was clam and still, with no rain or thunder yet just lighting every 5-10 seconds or so. Not too long after it disappeared, maybe 10-20 minutes later, we saw it again! This time it was much higher up and moved at a much faster speed as if it were leaving and no longer observing or hovering over the land. It went from the North sky to the South sky in a matter of seconds and then it disappeared. About 10 minutes after it disappear! ed there was a severe thunderstorm in which rain and thunder accompanied the lighting and the lighting even intensified.
