Me and family were driving home from town...it was just before dusk and we spotted a large bright light sitting in the west sky. It was a very bright crome color and was quite large. We arived home and noticed it was still in the sky in the same place. After an hour or so the kids said it was still out there so i took out our vidio camera and started taking pictures of it...we called the local tv station and they were here the next day to see the vidio.....it was used on the news and there was no explanation givin for it.

We watched the ufo for about 3 hours and vidio taped it for a while ...it was seemed very large and was a very bright crome color almost like the sun shining on crome except the sun was behind it. It didnt seem to move at all for the longest time... then just before it took off it split into three (which we have on vidio) and took off out of sight in a mater of a few seconds. Email me for anything else u might want to know...thanks…((name deleted))
