Duration:10 min.
A cluster of lights, then suddenly a head light moving slowly and lower. No landing gear rounded shape. No sound.

We saw a cluster of lights flashing in the distance. It seemed to be stationary. We were driving east bound on Rt. 273. Thought it may be a hellicopter, but as soon as we decided it was probably a hellicopter, suddenly there was a bright head light. It started coming toward us as we were still driving. It was heading west down Rt 273. It was going at a slow speed and seemed to be getting lower. Maybe the height of 1 1/2 telephone poles. I got the feeling that it may hit us. All we saw at this point was the head light coming right to us. It finally flew over us. We got a look under it. I didn't see any landing gear. It was light gray or white. The shape was a rounded rectangle. My son described it as being more rounded. He got the best look at it and said that it was something he had never seen before. There was NO sound either. Which was something we didn't realize until a few minutes later. I called the Rising Sun Police department when we got home to see if any one else had reported anything strange. The person I talked to said that she saw a cluster of lights and thought it was just a plane. It wasn't plane lights. There were too many lights.
