My daughter and I were driving down a rural road on the way home at about 7:35 p.m. on August 8th, 2000. She looked up at the moon which was 2/3rd full that evening when she spotted some kind of aircraft that was hovering around the moon. She asked me what it was. When I looked up I and saw that it was something very unusual, I stopped the car in the first driveway we came to, to get a better look. I happened to have my camera with us and was able to get two pictures of the object which was a saucer type shape with a dome on top with a SLR 35 mm camera with a 28 to 70 zoom lens zoomed to 70. It looked like it has windows in the dome with lights and the craft was silver. I got one picture while it was hovering and by the time I wound the film for the next shot, it had moved at a high speed closer and to the right (that's when I got the next shot). Before I could advance the film again, I watched the craft speed off and suddenly it disappeared. I never took my eyes off the object from the time we first spotted it until the time it disappeared. My daughter witnessed all this as well and we both have 20-20 vision. There was no sound or jet stream of any kind.
