Location: Lake City, FL
Shape: Light
Duration: 3 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail
Fast with momentary light trail

On a partially cloudy night while traveling on I-75 southbound just west of Lake City, FL I noticed a very bright light in the east. I first thought helicopter due to flying low just beneath the clouds but it sped up very rapidly and left a very bright white light trail behind it as it travelled west across the highway. The ufo suddenly stopped trailing and returned to original speed, then quickly disappeared west.

Iíve been around military aircraft and nothing Iíve seen can move that fast. It was so fast Iíll never forget it. I would have dismissed it as just a new jet I never saw before, but it left a solid white light trail in the sky that lingered for a good 3 seconds and was itself lit up. The ufo was a bright light and I could not determine a shape.
