i observed this object quite a few years ago, my mother and i were in her car on the road i live on and noticed a saucer shaped object hovering in the sky it was pretty low to the ground. its relative size in the sky was about that of a dinner plate. it was a very clear night and there was no mistaking what this thing was. it semmed to be white in color which made it very visible even though it was night time. i didnt see any lights, although there may have been small white lights because it seemed so clear to be in the night sky almost as if somone was shining a spot light on it. it did not move at all while i was looking at it and i only got to see it for about 10 seconds and then it literally vanished before my eyes. it did not fly off or disapear into clouds because there werent any clouds out and it wasnt that high anyway. other people had to of seen this thing because there were alot of people out at that time but for some reason it never got any publcity.
