It was the dark clear summer night on the 16th Jun 2007. I and my family including a wife and a 03½ year old daughter were going to the country’s capital Islamabad by road for vacation holidays. We started our journey from Lahore at about 05:30PM and had to travel a distance of 400 Km to reach the destination.

Taking two stopovers in the middle of the journey and approx. 45 Km from the destination, a strange phenomenon occurred during traveling at a speed of 120 Km/h when I suddenly picked up a red blinking light at an altitude of approx. 200ft, moving fast from east to west at a speed of a taking off passenger jet. We were traveling north.

Initially I thought that it’s an aero plane and for the attraction of my daughter who was sitting behind us on the baby seat, I said to her look there’s an aero plane in the skies. But as it approached more closely on the Motorway, it didn’t look like an aero plane to me and my wife. It was an orange colored object with a saucer shape and a red blinking light at the bottom and a glowing purple light around its circumference making an arc. I immediately slowed down my vehicle and brought it to 80 Km/h and recorded time on my watch as 09:30PM local time. As it further approached, we observed that it was spinning too fast more than the speed of acceleration. The first sentence my daughter said when she saw it, was "Mom, I have seen it in the Chicken Little movie."

I lowered my window to hear any sound as I was expecting a roaring sound from such a close distance but nothing was heard.

We had an eye contact with the object for more than 10 Seconds before it disappeared and we could not find its red blinking light neither the purple arc light any more.
