SIGHTING at FRANCONIA NOTCH, New Hampshire October 13, 2001

FRANCONIA NOTCH (WHITE MOUNTAINS) - NEW HAMPSHIRE - OCT 13 2001 - 3PM TWO WITNESSES TRAVELING SOUTH ON INT 93 SATURDAY MID AFTERNOON, CLEAR WEATHER. PICKUP TRAVEL SPEED 60 mph +/-... AN 8 FOOT LONG DULL BLACK OBJECT APPEARED OVER RIGHTHAND BUMPER (abt.4 foot above truck hood) - PASSED OVER HOOD OVER LEFTSIDE OF TRUCK CAB. PASS TOOK ABT. 2 SECONDS.

BOTH WITNESSES SAW A "LINE" of something... looking like small holes, portholes, in a row...perhaps 4 - 6 of them - reflections in each 'hole' could be from sunlight, or holes being "seethrough"; or possible dim light from within object.

This object was observed at very close quarters - less than 8 feet from driver and passenger - and truck was going at 60 mph +/-, and observation time was 2 seconds... view was that of a very long "cigar shape" - seemed to have a "split" front (fork) - witnesses agree that it could have been of a dif shape (like disc viewed from the side, slightly tilted) - it was of a very dull black...color. No sound, nor effect on trucks driving ability (wind, electronic interference, etc.) was observed...

In pickup truck there were two minors asleep in back of extended cab.

I am reporting above on behalf of the two witnesses, who have been shaken up since the sighting, and they wish to remain annynomous. Both are very serious about this, and suspect it may be a man-made object, and if so, are very concerned for the road travelling public. Sketch and info available from the undersigned, and I invite any comments.

Sincerely, ((name and e-address deleted)) New Hampshire
