firstname.lastname@example.org! July 13, 2001, 9:30 p.m., Green Swamp, west of Orlando Reported to Tampa Bay MUFON Hot line While driving home on State Road 474 west of Orlando, Witness #1 and his son (13 year old) saw a pin ball like object, 30-40 inch diameter seen in rear window of his automobile. It was reflecting back the details of the rear lights of the car. It was shimmering as they drove and they both had the feeling that they were being watched. He drove faster thinking that "Something was coming on us." As he looked at the rear view mirror the reflection was as a convex chromium surfaced object (pin ball) and he said he had difficulty focusing on it. He thought the object to be 3-4 feet behind his car. He said that there was something blocking the night sky as he looked up. When they reached the end of the road they noted that there was an increase of light without any visible shadows. Both witnesses were frightened. When they examined the car upon arriving at home (10 or 15 minute drive), there was nothing on the car or back window, no oily residue.
