|Sighting during Atlanta morning rush hour
Driving to Atlanta, the morning after my wife’s brother died, for my wife’s brother’s funeral with 3 children in the car, it was about 6:30-7am.
We were at a standstill in morning traffic on the main interstate coming from Florida.
It was a clear morning with no clouds in the sky.
Not moving in the traffic, I glanced up in the sky to my left and saw, very clearly, a shiny silver, object about the height and size as if a helicopter was hovering over the morning traffic.
This object had no propellers though and no wings. It hovered in that position. I turned my head to watch the slowly moving traffic. Then I quickly turned back to the object. It didn’t occur to me what I was seeing.
The shape was that of a blimp, but smooth, shiny and reflective like polished chrome.
I turned to watch traffic again and move as needed. When I turned back to see the object it was gone. I looked around and didn’t see it near by. If this had been a plane flying into Atlanta’s airport it would still be visible making its way as would a helicopter. This object disappeared from sight altogether.
My wife’s son also said later that he believes he saw the same object. With thousands of cars stuck in morning traffic, I can’t believe that I was the only one to see this.
