Location: Decatur, GA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10-15 MINUTES
THE TRIANGULAR OBJECT WAS BIG AND WIDE AT CLOSE RANGE MOVING SLOWLY AND HOOVERING OVER THE AREA WE WERE IN.

WE (MY SISTER) WERE ON GLENWOOD AND COLUMBIA DRIVE WHEN WE SAW THIS TRIANGULAR SHAPE IN THE SKY MOVING SORT OF SLOW ACROSS THE SKY WHICH WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO SHOOT A BB GUN AND HIT IT. WE THOUGHT WE WERE IMAGINING SOMETHING WHICH WAS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE WE BOTH WERE DESCRIBING THE SAME THING. WE DROVE TO MY MOMS HOUSE WHERE WE BOTH LIVED AT THE TIME (SOUTH COLUMBIA PLACE BETWEEN MACAFEE AND GLENWOOD). WE GOT OUT OF THE CAR WENT IN TO GO ON THE BACK PORCH TO SEE WHAT WE COULD SEE, THE THING JUST HOOVERED OVER THE HOUSE AT A CLOSE RANGE. CLEARLY WE COULD SEE THAT IT WAS NOT AN AIRPLANE. IT START MOVING AWAY. WE BOTH GOT IN THE CAR AN DECIDED TO FOLLOW THEM. WE WENT SOUTH ON S COLUMBIA DRIVE TO MACAFEE HEADING TOWARDS COLUMBIA DRIVE TOWARDS SNAPFINGER RD AND IT STARTED MOVING OUT OF SIGHT. WE WERE FLABERGASTIC, IN AWE WE DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO SAY OR WHO TO REPORT IT TO. PEOPLE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WE WERE MAKING THE WHOLE THING UP. I'M GLAD TO KNOW WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE AND PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT.
