A very clear sighting on highway U.S. 165 in Louisiana north of Oakdale near the small town of Glenmora in 1969.

It was a clear bright December afternoon, with clear blue sky, unlimited view. We were driving north on U.S. 165 from Kinder toward Alexandria, La. We had left the town of Oakdale and was about seven miles north headed toward the small town of Glenmora, La. We were just chatting and I was looking out the window to the right where I was seated in the passangers seat. I felt very funny all over as if something were wrong. I looked forward and saw a very bright silver object hovering over the highway about a mile or so in front of us. At first I didn't beleave what I was seeing was real but I saw that all of the cars in front of us had pulled off the highway and stopped. I reached for my camera, a Canon QL Pellex, I had a lens on it that was for close in shots. I was watching the object as we pulled over and stopped, attempting to change to my 135 telephoto lens and get out of the car to take pictures. (I WAS TOO LATE) The object was hovering at what appeared to be about 400 to 500 feet directly above the highway. The craft or object pevited from level to about 30 deg.s up on the right and moved at a very rapid rate to about 1500 to 2000 feet, stopped, leveled and became stationary. The object did exactly the reverse and moved back to the level position over the roadway. The craft or object glinting in the sun, did the same to the left as it did to the right. Each time it moved it stayed for only two or three seconds in each position. It then moved back to the level position over the highway and repeated its identical movement to the right once again. It moved back to the center over the highway and paused, it tilted to a position of about 45 to 60 degree angle to the up side to the left. The craft accelerated from zero to completly out of sight is only in only one second. The acceleration was unbeleaveable, the craft was visable for the first what appeared to be 10,000 feet as it became fainter and disappeared. I was in the Air Force at the time and I was on leave before re! porting to my new station. I never reported the sighting to anyone before now. I do not beleave in UFO's or abductions by anyone from other planets. I do not beleave that anyone from other worlds have ever lived here or visited hear. I think we have developed these objects ourselves or they are the deamons of saton attempting to fool people. What I saw was real in my mind and all who saw it, but it could have been deamon fooling all of us at the same time.
