UFO Sighting over townhome community in Birmingham Alabama

On the night of August 19th 2007 at 8:30 P.m. my wife and I were driving home taking a road we drive very normally during the week. The road is Old Springville Road in Birmingham, Alabama, in a part of town called Clay, in Jefferson County.

We were about driving down Old springville road, and were about to pass a townhome community named Sommersby. When turning the curve right in front of Sommersby my wife ectstatically yelled, "Look, Look right there."

What we both saw was very surreal and chilling. Off in the distance some 100 yards away, and about 50 ft above this particular grouping of town homes a multileveled, disc-like, object hovered. It had rectangular lights solidly lit around the perimeter of the disc. It was saucer shaped, and appeared to have four banded levels.

I immediately drove into the neighboorhood to get a closer look, but upon doing this the craft must have been aware and either manuvered away to fast to observe, or cloaked itself. The real scary thing about this event is that we have seen a disc hovering above this same group of houses before several months ago. It was a nearly identical disc.

I am afraid for the people of this neighborhood, and can only wander have they seen this too being in such closer proximity than myself on the road?
