|F-16s chase Disc object over Calcasieu River between Lake Charles and Moss Bluff
Myself and seven others were sitting on back porch when one of us noticed a disc shaped object flying in an ENE direction over the tree line. All we could really make out was that the bottom of the craft glowed predominately white but also had many colors spinning upward from the bottom of the craft to the edges.
In a matter of seconds two F-16s were seen in pursuit of this object. Their afterburners were approximately twice as long as the planes themselves. I know that they were F-16s as you could easily see the silhouette of their intake scoop directly underneath the cockpit against the ambient light emitted from Lake Charles and Westlake to the south.
The craft seemed to be leading them on a cat-and-mouse chase in that the planes would begin to catch up to the craft and then the craft would speed away in a different direction each time.
This "chase" occurred over the Calcasieu river which is less than a mile south of where we had gathered that evening.
